Broken Arrow Native On Watch List For College Football's Top Lineman

University of Arkansas junior guard Alvin Bailey was named to the Rotary Lombardi Award Watch List, which was released Monday.

Bailey was named an All-American by{}Pro Football Weekly{}and a second-team All-SEC performer in 2011, when he started all 13 games as part of an offensive line that allowed the offense to break 16 game or season school records.

The junior from Broken Arrow, Okla.,{}has started all 26 games of his Razorback career and blocked for consecutive seasons with a 3,000-yard passer, including the first season in school history with a 3,000-yard passer and a 1,000-yard rusher in 2010.

In 2011, Arkansas led the SEC in total offense, passing offense and scoring offense to become just the fifth different school, and first since 2001, to lead the conference in all three categories in a single season and became the sixth team in conference history, and second since 1992, to lead the SEC in passing offense for three straight seasons.

The Razorbacks ranked 13th in the country with their average of 300.7 passing yards per game, 15th in the nation with an average of 36.8 points per game and 29th in the NCAA with an average of 438.1 yards of total offense per game.

The Rotary Lombardi Award, named for legendary coach Vince Lombardi, is presented to the college lineman of the year by the Rotary Club of Houston.
