UC's Peek nominated for awards




The Cincinnati Enquirer

        University of Cincinnati senior defensive end Antwan Peek has been named to the 64-player watch list for the 2002 Bronko Nagurski Award.

        The award, named after a Hall of Famer for the Chicago Bears, is presented to the nation's top defensive player by the Charlotte Touchdown Club. It is awarded in balloting by the 800-member Football Writer's Association of America.

        Peek, a first-team choice for the 2001 All-Conference USA team, led all UC linemen last season as a junior with 60 tackles. He also set school records for sacks in a game (four against Louisiana-Monroe), season (12.5) and career (21).

        He ranked fourth in the nation in sacks in 2001, fifth with five forced fumbles and 10th with 22 tackles for loss.

        This has been a spring of honors for Peek. On April 4, he was one of 49 offensive and defensive linemen tabbed for the preliminary watch list for the 2002 Lombardi Award, which is presented annually to the best lineman in the country. On the same day, Peek was singled out as one of the top four pass rushers in the nation by collegefootballnews.com, joining Cory Redding of Texas, Louisville's Dewayne White and Terrell Suggs of Arizona State.
