Lips Named to Lombardi Watch List

Louisiana Tech senior guard Aaron Lips was one of 123 players nationwide named to the 2005 Rotary Lombardi Award preseason watch list released Monday.

Lips is the veteran of the Bulldog offensive line as the Tickfaw native enters his final year having made 36 consecutive starts at either left guard or center.

The first team All-Western Athletic Conference selection a year ago helped anchor a Tech line that paved the way for a record-setting performance by now departed Ryan Moats.

The Rotary Lombardi Award will celebrate its 36th year of honoring the finest linemen in college football on Dec. 7 in Houston. This year's watch list is divided up with 58 offensive players and 63 defensive players.
