Established by The Pacific Club IMPACT® Foundation, The Lott IMPACT® Trophy honors college football’s best in character and performance.

The award is unique because it represents the first college football award to give equal weight to personal character as well as athletic performance from a defensive college player and is the first national college football award based on the West Coast.


The Lott IMPACT® Trophy Watch List Luncheon will take place:

Thursday, May 30, 2024, at 11:30am in The Pacific Club’s Hamilton Dining Room in Newport Beach, California.

It is the mission of The Pacific Club IMPACT® Foundation to recognize and support national and local charities serving America’s youth. The Foundation will raise money for those charitable purposes from events associated with awarding The Lott IMPACT® Trophy to the Defensive IMPACT® Player of the Year. The Lott IMPACT® Trophy will recognize and honor the nation’s outstanding collegiate defensive football player, who has exemplified the unparalleled athletic and personal qualities reflected in Ronnie Lott.


The Lott IMPACT® Trophy is awarded annually to individuals who demonstrate excellence in the field of athletics and recognizes college football’s Defensive Player of the Year who best exemplifies the IMPACT acronym: Integrity, Maturity, Performance, Academics, Community and Tenacity.
