LARAMIE, Wyo. - Wyoming senior center Nick Carlson has been named to a second preseason watch list.

Carlson was selected to the 2012 Rotary Lombardi Watch List on Monday. The Rotary Lombardi Award honors the top lineman in the Football Bowl Subdivision at the conclusion of each season.

This is the first time in Carlson's career that he has been named to the Rotary Lombardi list. He was earlier selected to the Rimington Trophy Watch List, which honors the nation's top center.

Players eligible for the Rotary Lombardi Award are linemen on offense and defense who line up no farther than 10 yards from the ball and linebackers who line up no farther than five yards deep from the line of scrimmage.

Carlson earned Second Team All-Mountain West honors last year.
