CHICAGO — Oregon linebacker Noah Sewell is one of 16 semifinalists for the 2021 Butkus Award, the Butkus Foundation announced on Monday morning.

This kids tackles are always fun to watch. He’s gotta quit knocking himself goofy however.🤪 in the Cal game Garber was rolling to his right looking for a receiver, glanced back to see who was chasing him, saw it was Noah and immediately sprinted out of bounds forgetting all about completing a pass. And in the same game Noah hit a guy, a mile from the play, so hard he knocked himself half goofy. He got up, staggered around for a few seconds, made his way back to the huddle and went on like nothing happened.


One tough kid.

I love this guy.
