University of South Alabama’s Ucambre Williams was announced as being on the watch list for the 2014 Rotary Lombardi Award by the Rotary Lombardi Award Committee announced on Monday.

This marks the second consecutive season a Jaguar has been named to the watch list for this award. Last season Alex Page was placed on the preseason watch list.

Williams, a 6’3″ 295-pound senior from Phenix City, Alabama, enters the 2014 preseason camp with the tag of starting left tackle. The two-year starter was also named to the preseason second-team All-Sun Belt Conference teams by both Phil Steele and Athlon Sports.

He was selected to the second-team All-Conference team after a team-best 89% grade with 43 pancake blocks. He did not allow a sack on any of the 394 passing plays by the Jaguar offense. He was selected as the coaches’ award winner on the offensive line three times last season (Tulane, Georgia State, Louisiana-Lafayette) and posted a season-high 94% grade against Georgia State and six knockdown blocks against the Green Wave. He equaled his high grade against Troy as the Jags set a school record with 630 yards of total offense. He also graded out with a 90% mark or higher six times last season.

He also was selected for the Coaches’ Award after games against nationally-ranked Mississippi State and UTSA in 2012.

The 45th Annual Rotary Lombardi Award ceremony is scheduled for Wednesday, December 10 at the Bayou Music Center in Houston, Texas. Student-Athletes who are eligible for the award are down-linemen, end-to-end, either on offense or defense, who set up no farther than 10 yards to the left or right of the ball or linebackers who set up no farther than five yards deep from the line of scrimmage.

Congratulations Ucambre! Go Jags!
