Watch list season continued on Friday to send Penn State into the weekend with one of the top centers in college football being recognized by the Boomer Esiason Foundation.  Redshirt senior Juice Scruggs was named on the watch list for the Rimington Trophy on Friday as Penn State hopes to secure its second all-time winner.

The Rimington Trophy is presented annually to college football’s most outstanding center. Scruggs is expected to be Penn State’s starting center for the upcoming 2022 season after showing his versatility on the offensive line at multiple positions. This year’s initial watch list for the Rimington Trophy included 40 of the top centers in all of FBS going into the new season, including five other centers from around the Big Ten.

Penn State has one previous winner of the Rimington Trophy, which was first awarded in 2000. A.Q. Shipley received the award in 2008, making him the fourth player from the Big Ten to ever win the award (Nebraska‘s Dominic Raiola was the inaugural winner of the Rimington Trophy in 2000 when Nebraska was still in the Big 12).

Alabama and Ohio State are tied for the most all-time Rimington Trophy winners with three each.

Last year’s winner of the Rimington Trophy was Tyler Linderbaum of Iowa.
