Big 12 lands seven on Lott Trophy list

The Lott IMPACT Trophy list broke the ice on awards list season and put six Big 12 talents on its 2012 Watch List. Each year, the award is given to the defensive player with the biggest "IMPACT" on his team, on and off the field.

The acronym stands for Integrity, Maturity, Performance, Academics, Community and Tenacity.

No Big 12 player has ever won the award, but TCU's Jerry Hughes won the award in 2009.

Boston College's Luke Kuechly won the award in 2011, when Texas linebacker Emmanuel Acho was a finalist for the award.
