USAF ACADEMY, Colo. - Air Force senior defensive back Reggie Rembert was one of 30 NCAA® football bowl subdivision student-athletes who excel both on and off the field and were selected as candidates today for the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award in football. To be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must be classified as an NCAA Division I senior and have notable achievements in four areas of excellence – community, classroom, character and competition.
An acronym for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School®, the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award focuses on the total student-athlete and encourages students to use their platform in athletics to make a positive impact as leaders in their communities.
Rembert was a first-team All-Mountain West selection at cornerback as a junior in 2009 and was recently named to the 2010 All-MWC Preseason team and the 2010 Paul Hornung Award watch list. The Flower Mound, Texas, native recorded 43 tackles to go with three interceptions last year. Rembert has started 25 of 37 career games played with 131 tackles and six interceptions.
The senior is also a versatile special teams threat, returning both kickoffs and punts for the Falcons each of the past three seasons. As a junior, Rembert averaged 25.1 yards per kickoff return and returned 10 punts for 58 yards. Rembert is Air Force’s all-time leader in kickoff returns (65) and return yardage (1,388).
Rembert is one of three Mountain West Conference nominees, joining TCU safety Tejay Johnson and Utah center Zane Taylor.
