Greg Jones on Butkus list

[Bumped.  --LVS]

Greg Jones is a semi finalist for the Butkus Award going to the top collegiate linebacker.

Greg, who really needs some kind of fearsome nickname, was one of 16 who made the cut from the intial list of 35. So far he has 85 tackles, including 8.5 for losses, five sacks, a fumble recovery and one pass breakup.

Obi Ezeh from U of M and PSU's Sean Lee both made the cut, which is pretty odd because Lee has barely played because of an injury.

The committee also decided to include Gameday feature cover guy Mark Herzlich of Boston College, in recognition of his courage in battling cancer.

"Mark Herzlich would have been a top contender for the Butkus Award this year had it not been for his illness,” said Hub Arkush of Pro Football Weekly, who supervises selectors.  “The committee is so impressed with his inspirational story of recovery that we wanted to add him as a nominee.”
