Bloomington, Ind. – Indiana’s Greg Middleton was named one of eight finalists for the Ted Hendricks Award on Wednesday, an award given to the top defensive end in college football.

The Hoosier sophomore set a new IU single-season record with an NCAA-best 16 sacks, capped by a 2 ½-sack performance in the regular-season finale against Purdue. That broke the previous school mark of 14, set by Van Waiters in 1987. Middleton also became the first Hoosier defensive end to earn first-team All-Big Ten honors since Adewale Ogunleye in 1997.

Other finalists include: Eric Bakhtiari (San Diego), Maurice Evans (Penn State), Vernon Gholston (Ohio State), Chris Long (Virginia), Nick Reed (Oregon), Jonal Saint-Dic (Michigan State) and George Selvie (South Florida).

Voting for the award concludes Dec. 3, and the winner will be announced Dec. 5.
