Newport Beach, October 1, 2015 – The Lott IMPACT Trophy is pleased to announce that Springleaf Financial has signed on as an official charitable partner of the Lott IMPACT Trophy, an award that recognizes College Football’s Defensive Best in Character and Performance.
Named after 4-time Super Bowl winner and Pro Football Hall of Famer Ronnie Lott, the Lott IMPACT Trophy recognizes young men who not only perform on the field, but also off the field. The award celebrates defensive college football players that embody the IMPACT acronym; Integrity, Maturity, Performance, Academics, Community and Tenacity.
The 2014 Lott IMPACT Trophy was awarded to UCLA stand-out Linebacker Eric Kendricks, and has been won by some of today’s top defensive players in the NFL including 2013 Defensive Player of the year Luke Kuechly (Boston College) and 2012/2014 NFL Defensive Player of the year J.J. Watt (Wisconsin).
“It is our great pleasure to announce that Springleaf Financial has signed on as an official charitable partner of the Lott IMPACT Trophy,” said Ronnie Lott. “This partnership will undoubtedly open new doors and create tremendous opportunities for the wonderful programs we support. The great people at Springleaf Financial pride themselves in making an impact in their communities, just as the young men who are recognized by our award do. This is a natural partnership that will create a lot of good.”
