Sophomore Cameron Jurgens has been named to the Rimington Trophy Watch List. The trophy is named after former Nebraska great Dave Rimington. It is awarded to the nation’s top center.

I understand that a large number of players make these watch lists so it isn’t really a big deal. Eight Big Ten players made it onto this list.

One of them was Jurgens. Better to be on the list than not.

He was the Benjamin Button of offensive linemen but instead of reverse aging, he reversed position movement. Usually, as linemen get older and slower, they might get kicked inside but Woody made his way outside as he got older. Also, he felt like he played the best football of his career in his last three seasons in the league playing right tackle. For that, he thanked his offensive line coach with the Jets: Bill Callahan.
