Carolina Newcomer on Preseason List for Nations Top Linebacker

Senior University of South Carolina Jordan Strachan has been named to the Butkus Award preseason watch list, it was announced today.

The Butkus Award, now in its 37th season, annually honors the nation’s top linebacker. The watch list includes 51 linebackers, a reflection of the legendary “51” pro jersey associated with the Award’s namesake, Dick Butkus, who was recognized by NFL Films as the greatest defensive player in football history.

The semi-finalists are expected to be named on November 1, the finalists on November 22 and the winner on or before December 7.

Established in 1985, the Butkus Award honors three-tier linebackers and supports causes important to the Butkus family. Causes include the Butkus Takes Heart initiative that encourages early cardiovascular screening in adults, and the I Play Clean initiative that encourages athletes to exercise naturally without performance-enhancing drugs.

The Butkus Award partners with Agua Caliente Resort Casino Spa Rancho Mirage to celebrate the winners of the Butkus Award. The event is scheduled for Saturday, February 5, 2022. Contact the Butkus Foundation for information about tickets and sponsorship.

The Butkus Award is presented by the Butkus Foundation and selected by a 51-member expert panel of coaches, scouts and journalists. The award is part of the National College Football Awards Association (NCFAA), which includes college football’s most prestigious awards. The NCFAA’s 25 awards have honored more than 800 recipients since 1935. Visit www.NCFAA.org For more information.
