Starter: Matt Hugenberg Sr.
Backup: Joshua Boylan So.
Senior Matt Hugenberg (6-5”, 309) is the only returning lineman who started every game last year at center. He was named first team All-Independent by Phil Steele and FBS honorable mention All-Independent. Hugenberg is consistent even if he is probably the slowest lineman on the two deep. Matt lacks speed but he has surprisingly good feet and can move and slide. Hugenberg is strong and can dominate at times like against Ball State when he had 17 knockdown blocks. When he was outplayed against Stanford. Rice and Air Force the offense ground to a halt. His snaps in the shotgun were so erratic last year the staff stopped using the formation. Hugenberg sat out the spring game.
The new backup center is direct admit sophomore Joshua Boylan (6-2”, 253). Boylan will be in the third generation in his family to attend the United States Military Academy at West Point. His father Joe played football for Army. The Texas product was a four year starter at Grace Community School high school as an offensive center and defensive end. He was named first-team all-state team two consecutive seasons. Grace Community averaged nearly 500 yards per game with Josh at center. Boylan has added ten pounds since R-day. He was the starting center in the Black-Gold game for the Gold squad which struggled.
