The Rimington Trophy Committee has released its 2016 Spring Watch List and Middle Tennessee’s Daniel Stephens is among the nominees.
Stephens, a senior from Duluth, GA, started all 13 games last season in helping an offense to produce a 4,000-yard passer and two 1,000-yard receivers for the first time in school history.
The Rimington Trophy is presented annually to the Most Outstanding Center in NCAA Division I-A College Football. Since its inception, the Rimington Trophy has raised over $2.6 million for the cystic fibrosis community. The award is overseen by the Boomer Esiason Foundation, which is committed to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis and has raised over $120 million for the fight against cystic fibrosis.
Dave Rimington, the award’s namesake, was a consensus first-team All-America center at the University of Nebraska in 1981 and 1982, during which time he became the John Outland Trophy’s only double winner as the nation’s finest college interior lineman.
