BATON ROUGE – LSU defensive end Rashard Lawrence has been named the Lott IMPACT Trophy Player of the Week for his performance in the 46-41 win over No. 3 Alabama on Saturday, the Pacific Club IMPACT Foundation announced on Tuesday.
Lawrence, a senior from Neville High School in Monroe, La., had four tackles, batted down two passes and teamed with Patrick Queen for a sack in the win over the Crimson Tide.
