Pitt C Jimmy Morrissey Named to Rimington Award Watch List

Pitt C Jimmy Morrissey Named to Rimington Award Watch List

Pitt center Jimmy Morrissey has been named to the watch list for the Dave Rimington Trophy for the second consecutive season, the Rimington Trophy Committee announced on Wednesday.

The Rimington Trophy is presented annually to the best center in college football and is named for former Nebraska center Dave Rimington.

The Rimington Trophy selection is tied to the All-America selections of the American Football Coaches Association, the Walter Camp Foundation, The Sporting News and the Football Writers of America.

The trophy was established in 2000, and Pitt has not had a player win the award. Last season, Wisconsin center Tyler Biadasz won the award.

Ironically, Morrissey’s inclusion on the list as the nation’s top center came during the week after he accepted a move to right guard in order to replace injured starter Jake Kradel.

Morrissey was named a preseason All-ACC selection after winning all-conference honors in each of the last two seasons. He was also named to the watch list for the Outland Trophy as the nation’s top interior lineman and is a semifinalist for the William V. Campbell trophy for a combination of academic and athletic success.

Zero chance at winning. Just watch his “push” on short yardage runs.
