Rimington Watch List Features Pack Center
The WAC recently announced that Wolf Pack center Dominic Green has been named to the preseason Riminton Trophy watch list. This is the second time that Dominic has been named to this list (he was also named in 2007) and is also the second watch list that he has been named to this year (the Rotary Lombardi trophy is the other).
The Rimington trophy is awarded to the nations best center. The way it works is that votes from four of the All-American teams are tallied up and the player who got the most votes combined from those four is awarded the trophy. The four All-American teams are: American Football Coaches Association, Walter Camp Foundation, the Sporting News, and Football Writers Association of America. The Rimington trophy committee then verifies that the player is primarily his teams center before awarding the trophy.
All of the winners of this award so far have been from BCS schools. We here at PWtW think that with a couple of big wins this season against highly ranked Big 12 schools that Dom has a chance to break that streak and be the first WAC player to take home the hardware.
