LOTT FINALIST SHINES ON BIGGEST STAGE

Jordan Fuller was not the top Ohio State Buckeye in this year’s NFL Draft.

Jordan Fuller was not the top Ohio State Buckeye in this year’s NFL Draft.

That was Chase Young, the defensive end, picked No. 2 overall.  Two other Buckeyes went in the first round and seven total were chosen before Fuller’s name was called in Round 6!

But Fuller, a Lott IMPACT Trophy finalist last year, became the biggest star of them all Monday night.  Now a starting safety for the L.A. Rams, Fuller intercepted two passes from Tom Brady on Monday Night Football to help the Rams to a significant road victory over Tampa Bay.

Fuller’s mother Cindy Mizelle is a professional singer who has performed with Bruce Springsteen, Whitney Houston and the Rolling Stones, among others. She attended last year’s awards banquet with Jordan.

Fuller was not the only Lott IMPACT Trophy finalist with a pair of interceptions in the NFL last weekend – Minkah Fitzpatrick, a 2017 finalist from Alabama, had two interceptions for the undefeated Pittsburgh Steelers.

And back at Ohio State, current Buckeye standout Shaun Wade intercepted a pass and returned it 36 yards for a touchdown against upstart Indiana.  Wade is on this year’s Lott IMPACT Trophy Watch List. Maybe he, too, can be an NFL Monday Night star like Jordan Fuller. The sixth rounder!

A trio of players on the Watch List – Mike Rose of Iowa State, Richie Grant of Central Florida and Richard LeCounte of Georgia – have three interceptions this year, among the leaders in the nation.
