Press releaseSALT LAKE CITY -- Utah senior offensive tackle Zane Beadles has been selected as one of 30 candidates for the 2009 Lowe's Senior CLASS Award.

To be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must be classified as an NCAA Division I senior in the Football Bowl Subdivision and have notable achievements in four areas of excellence - classroom, character, community and competition.

Beadles is preparing to start for his fourth year on the offensive line and is an All-America candidate at left tackle. A first-team all-Mountain West Conference selection last year, he made the second team as a sophomore. Voted a 2009 team captain and to the preseason all-MWC team, Beadles is on the watch list for the Rotary Lombardi Award and the Outland Trophy.

The senior mechanical engineering major holds a 3.535 grade point average and is scheduled to graduate in December. He regularly participates in community service events and is a member of Utah's Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC).

The 30 candidates will be narrowed to 10 finalists midway through the season.

Last year, Ute All-America kicker/punter Louie Sakoda was a finalist for the award.
