ronnieThe Lott Trophy was named in honor of Ronnie Lott – a two time All-American for USC and College Football Hall of Fame inductee.

Ronnie Lott went on to win four Super Bowl rings with the San Francisco 49ers, ten trips to the Pro Bowl and a spot in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Always known as a fierce competitor, he was a leader who had IMPACT both on the field and off.

The Lott Trophy was established by The Pacific Club IMPACT Foundation to honor college football’s Defensive IMPACT Player of the Year.
The award is unique because it represents the first trophy to give equal weight to personal character as well as athletic performance.
