Hawkeyes' King on Lott Trophy Watch List

Posted: Updated:

Iowa senior defensive back Desmond King is one of 42 players named to the 2016 Lott IMPACT Trophy Watch List.

 King earned the Jim Thorpe Award as a junior while collecting consensus first team All-America honors.  He also earned the Tatum-Woodson Big Ten Defensive Back of the Year Award and the Jack Tatum Award.

King ranked second in the nation in 2015 with eight interceptions, matching Iowa’s single season record previously reached by Heisman Trophy winner Nile Kinnick (1939) and Lou King (1981).  King had multiple interceptions in two games (Pittsburgh and Wisconsin), becoming the first Hawkeye with multiple multi-interception games in a season since Tyler Sash in 2009.  King has two interception returns for touchdowns in his career.

King recorded 72 tackles and 13 pass break-ups to go with his eight interceptions as a junior in 2015.  He also handled kickoff (24.4) and punt returns (14.2) throughout the season.  King shared Most Valuable Player honors and earned the Reggie Roby Special Teams Award.
