NORMAN, Okla. -- It’s almost becoming repetitive at this point, but with the announcement of another preseason watch list, this time for the 42nd Rotari Lombardi Award, three more Sooners are mentioned.

Offensive lineman Stephen Good, center Ben Habern and linebacker Travis Lewis are the three Sooner nominees on the list.

Good, a 6-foot-4, 293-pound senior guard, had 81 knockdowns while playing 500 snaps a season ago.

Habern, who led all OU offensive linemen with 1,070 snaps and 123 knockdowns, started all 14 games and anchored the unit on his way to earning honorable mention All-Big 12.

Lewis, the only Sooner defensive player on the list, has led the team in tackles three years running and needs just 82 more to break into the OU all-time Top 10 list.

Players must be down linemen, end-to-end, either on offense or defense, who set up no further than 10 yards to the left or right of the ball, and linebackers who set up no farther than five yards deep from the line of scrimmage in order to be eligible for the award.

The award will be presented on Dec. 6-7, 2011 at Reliant Center in Houston, Texas.
