Georgia center David Andrews named to 2014 Outland Trophy watch list


Another list, another University of Georgia football player. This time center David Andrews was named by the Football Writers Association of America to the 2014 Outland Trophy preseason watch list.

The Outland Trophy is presented each year to the best interior lineman in the nation, and is chosen from three finalists who are part of the FWAA All-America Team. The FWAA All-America Committee, after voting input from the entire membership, selects the 26-man first team and eventually the Outland finalists. Committee members, then by individual ballot, select the winner. Only interior linemen on offense or defense are eligible for the award; ends are not eligible.

Andrews was added to the Rimington Trophy watch list earlier this week, which is presented to the nation’s top center.

The SEC had more names on the Outland Trophy list than any other conference, coming in with 19; then the ACC (9), Big 12 (9), Big Ten (9), Pac-12 (11), American Athletic (2), Conference USA (2), Independents (2), and Mountain West (1).

Andrews is one of 14 centers on the 64-man watch list.

The 6-foot-2, 295-pound senior has made a name for himself as one of the best linemen in the SEC, and has been a big part of an offensive line that has been in front of one of the top scoring offenses in the nation.
