NEW YORK –University of Pittsburgh junior Artie Rowell has been named to the 2014 Rimington Trophy Spring Watch List, annually giving to the Most Outstanding Center in Division I-A College Football.
Rowell (Harrisburg, Pa./Central Dauphin) is one of 64 Division-I players on the Rimington Trophy Watch List. Rowell started every game at center last season and garnered All-Bowl Team recognition from NFL.com and CollegeFootballNews.com for his performance in Pitt's 30-27 Little Caesars Pizza Bowl victory over Bowling Green by helping Pitt produce 487 yards of total offense (255 rushing and 232 passing).
Rowell is one of seven players from the Atlantic Coast Conference to be named to the Rimington Watch List.
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 $2.5 million for the cystic fibrosis community. The fourteen-year old award is overseen by the Boomer Esiason Foundation, which is committed to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis and has raised over $100 million for CF Research.
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.
