KU’s Ochoa on watch list

June 20, 2006


Kansas University senior offensive lineman David Ochoa is among 54 players on the Outland Trophy watch list, an honor given to the nation's best football lineman.

It's the second watch list for Ochoa. The other was for the Rimington Trophy.

The 6-foot-4, 280-pound Ochoa started all last season at center and was KU's lone offensive team captain in 2005. He earned honorable mention All-Big 12 Conference honors.

Tackles, guards and centers are eligible for the Outland Trophy, voted on and handed out by the Football Writers Association of America. Minnesota center Greg Eslinger won last year's award.
