FAYETTEVILLE Jonathan Luigs was living in an offensive lineman’s paradise last winter.
Arkansas’ top lineman shared a piece of the Jacobs Trophy, given to the SEC’s best blocker, after helping the Razorbacks rush for a school-record 3, 725 yards in 2007.
Luigs earned an invitation to Orlando, Fla., for the Home Depot ESPNU College Football Awards show, where he won the Rimington Trophy given to the nation’s top center and he got to mess around with a NASCAR race car.
Team accomplishments helped highlight the ability of Luigs, who was a key cog for an offense that broke school records for total offense (450. 0 yards per game ) and scoring (37. 3 points per game ).
