Every position in college football has the trophy to honor the best at that position, even perhaps the most thankless position on the field at center. The official watch list for the Rimington Trophy is out for 2012 for the best center in college football, and B.J. Finney of the Kansas State Wildcats has been named as a finalist once again.
Michigan's David Molk won it last year and was drafted by the San Diego Chargers this last spring, so there will definitely be a new winner in 2012.
The list includes 21 returning players from the 2011 Watch List. In all, there are 51 players on the Watch List. The Southeastern Conference leads the way with ten players. The Big Ten follows with six players, while the ACC, Conference USA, Mountain West Conference, and the PAC-12 all check in with five players each. In addition, there are two graduate students and eight sophomores on the Watch List.
