HOOVER, Ala. -- Reese Dismukes is a hot ticket this SEC Media Days Monday.  

He's making the rounds at the SEC circus as an anchor of Auburn's offensive line, and he's also added more preseason recognition to a season that's six weeks away. The center was named to the fall watch list Monday for the Lombardi Award, which honors the nation's best offensive lineman.

He was already on the watch lists for the Rimington Trophy, which goes to the nation's best center; and the Outland Trophy, which goes to the nation's best interior lineman. Dismukes helped Auburn lead the nation in rushing last season.

Dismukes isn't the only Auburn being mentioned for national recognition. Defensive tackle Gabe Wright, also at Media Days, is up for the Outland and the Bronco Nagurski Trophy. Offensive lineman Alex Kozan is on the Outland watch list, too.

C.J. Uzomah is on the watch list for the Mackey Award, which goes to the nation's top tight end.

Quarterback Nick Marshall and receiver Sammie Coates are on the watch list for the Maxwell Award, which goes to the nation's top player. Robenson Therezie was named to the watch list Monday for the Chuck Bednarik Award, which goes to the nation's top defensive player.
