Alabama Football’s Cam Robinson Named Finalist for Outland Trophy
Alabama junior left tackle Cam Robinson was chosen as one of three finalists for the Outland Trophy, the Greater Omaha Sports Commission announced on Monday afternoon.
Robinson has been a staple at left tackle since he stepped foot on campus, starting all 40 games of his career protecting the blind side. He anchors a Tide offensive line that has blocked for the Southeastern Conference’s top scoring offense and has helped the Alabama rushing attack to accumulate 249.8 yards per game, a total that is second in the conference.
The Monroe, La., native has blocked for 10 100-yard rushing games this season and 27 100-yard rushers during his three year career. This season, he has recorded 23 knockdown blocks in 11 games while protecting Alabama quarterbacks from some of the top edge pass rushers in the nation.
Joining Robinson are Pat Elflein of Ohio State and Cody O’Connell of Washington State. The 2016 Outland Trophy winner will be named during The Home Depot College Football Awards show airing live on ESPN from the College Football Hall of Fame in downtown Atlanta on Thursday, Dec. 8 at 6 p.m. CT.
