In another unsurprising piece of news, senior UGA center David Andrews has been named to the 2014 Rimington Trophy watch list by the Boomer Esiason Foundation.

The trophy is presented each year to the most outstanding center in NCAA Division-1 football, the winner of whom is selected by determining the consensus All-American center pick from three existing All-America Teams; the Walter Camp Foundation, the Sporting News, and the Football Writers Association of America.

Andrews should be considered a front-runner for the award, as he’s been an anchor for the offensive line that has been near the nation’s best in passing and rushing yardage. The trick will be getting the All-American voters to finally sit up and take note of Andrews work on the Georgia offensive line.

Last season, Andrews started all 13 games at center and was the recipient of Coaches’ Leadership Award. He has also been named to the preseason All-SEC team.
