NC State's Cory Durden Named To Lombardi Watch List

August 1, 2022

NC State defensive lineman Cory Durden has been named to the 2022 Rotary Lombardi Award watch list. The Rotary Lombardi Award announced the 77 players who will compete for this year's coveted award. 

The Rotary Lombardi Award goes annually to the college football offensive or defensive lineman, who in addition to outstanding performance and ability, best exemplifies the character and discipline of NFL Hall of Fame Head Coach Vince Lombardi. 

In his first season at NC State last year, Durden was named a first-team All-ACC performer on the official league team and on the AP squad. He also earned the team's Carey Brewbaker Award for Top Defensive Lineman. He was the Pack's starter in the last seven games of the season at defensive tackle, with a top game against Clemson - tallied six tackles, 1.5 sacks and had a QB pressure in that contest.

Durden was previously named to the 2022 Outland Trophy watch list.
