(July 25, 2014) -- UTSA student-athletes Scott Inskeep and Robert Singletary were named to the Rotary Lombardi Award preseason watch list, the Lombardi Award committee has announced.

The award is presented annually to the nation's top interior lineman. That includes down linemen end-to-end, either on offense or defense, who set up no farther than 10 yards to the left or right of the ball, or linebackers that set up no farther than five yards deep from the line of scrimmage.

The watch list is intended as a reference tool for the selection committee and it will be periodically updated and revised through the conclusion of the voting to determine the 12 semifinalists. The winner of the 45th Rotary Lombardi Award will be honored at the annual banquet Dec. 10 at the Bayou Music Center in Houston.

Inskeep, a senior offensive guard, is coming off a 2013 campaign that saw him record 61 knockdown blocks including a season-best nine at Tulsa (Nov. 9) and again a week later against Tulane, and that was good for second on the squad. The 6-foot-4, 300-pounder from McAllen also graded out at 82 percent and was a key part of an offensive line that did not commit a holding penalty en route to second-team All-Conference USA accolades.

His blocking helped the UTSA offense average 25.6 points, 417.8 total yards (175.4 rush/242.4 pass), 21.9 first downs and 32:24 possession time per contest. It marks the second consecutive season that Inskeep was named to the Lombardi Award's preseason watch list.

Singletary, a 6-foot-2, 250-pound senior defensive end from Kingwood, was named a 2013 honorable mention all-league performer after racking up 30 tackles, a team-leading five sacks and two forced fumbles, four QB hurries and a pair of pass breakups and in just eight games (six starts) in his first campaign as a Roadrunner. His top outing came in his second contest of the season at Marshall when he recorded career highs with seven stops and two sacks in addition to forcing a fumble that led to points.

All 123 candidates from a total of 76 schools earned a place on the preliminary watch list by earning All-America honors, being named to their respective all-conference teams or receiving 2014 preseason accolades.

The list will be updated before the start of the season in order to identify other players who have received significant honors. While it highlights those players who already have received national recognition this summer, any Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) player who meets the requirements is eligible for consideration from the selection committee, which is comprised of more than 300 members including all past winners and finalists, all FBS head coaches, and a panel of sportswriters and broadcasters.

The Roadrunners now have a total of four players on national preseason watch lists entering their fourth campaign, as senior Nate Leonard was named a Dave Rimington Trophy (top center in the Football Bowl Subdivision) candidate and senior free safety Triston Wade was tabbed a Jim Thorpe Award (nation's top defensive back) player to watch.

UTSA, 7-5 overall and 6-2 in C-USA play a year ago, will open its 2014 season on Friday, Aug. 29, at Houston. The first-ever game at the brand new TDECU Stadium will kick off at 8 p.m. and will be televised nationally on ESPNU.
