Campbell tackles his way into final dozen

Junior defensive end Calais Campbell advanced to become one of twelve semi-finalists for the Lombardi Award. The award is given to the nation’s top lineman or linebacker in college football. Campbell is also on the midseason watch list for the new Hendricks Award, given to the nation’s top defensive end.

Campbell’s name popping up in such defensive award categories comes as no surprise, as he is coming off a strong sophomore season. Through the first seven games in 2007, Campbell has 6.5 tackles for a loss, 4.0 sacks, one interception, two fumbles forced, two fumbles recovered and is ranked third in team tackles with 56. He also has a pass reception on a fake field goal, and he leads the team with 13 quarterback pressures.
