Another day, another Watch List for a Pittsburgh Panther.
Tuesday, Artie Rowell was one of 64 players named to the Rimington Award Watch List, annually presented to the nations's top center.
Rowell enjoyed a breakout season in 2013. After holding off Gabe Roberts in a position battle for the spot, Rowell earned the starting job in training camp, and never looked back. He as named to the All-Bowl team by several publications, following Pitt's 487 yards of offense in a win over Bowling Green in the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl.
In addition to starting all 13 games a year ago, Rowell anchors a line that returns five players who started games in 2014.
Rowell, a three-star prospect coming out of Central Dauphin High School, verbally committed to the Panthers in May of 2010. Despite a coaching change after the 2010 season, Rowell honored his verbal commitment to the Panthers, signing his National Letter of Intent in February of 2011.
A native of Harrisburg, Pa., Rowell was a four-year starter on both sides of the ball at Central Dauphin. He was selected first team All-State Class AAAA by the Pennsylvania Sports Writers and Pennsylvania Football News first team All-Class AAAA as a senior.
