NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (AP) – Texas A&M left tackle Jake Matthews won the Bobby Bowden Award on Friday, presented for high performance on the field, in class and in the community.

Matthews, the son of former NFL lineman Bruce Matthews, is a two-time all-Southeastern Conference player who moved from right to left tackle for his senior season.

Matthews is considered by many experts to be a top-five pick in this year’s NFL draft.

The award, named after the former Florida State coach, is sponsored by the Seminole Tribe of Florida.

Other finalists for the award were Mississippi punter Tyler Campbell, Arizona linebacker Jake Fischer, Oklahoma offensive lineman Gabe Ikard, Oklahoma State linebacker Shaun Lewis and Alabama receiver Kevin Norwood.
