WSU's Riley Sorenson named to Rimington Trophy Watch List

WASHINGTON STATE starting center Riley Sorenson (6-4, 327) has been named to the 2016 Rimington Trophy Spring Watch List, it was announced Tuesday.

Sorenson, a senior from Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif., has started 21 games over the past two seasons at Washington State. 

He was named 2015 All-Pac-12 honorable mention selection and has been one of the anchors for a Cougar offensive line that helped WSU lead the nation in passing each of the last two seasons.

The Rimington Trophy is presented annually to the most outstanding center in the FBS.  The watch list released Tuesday consisted of 57 names including three Pac-12 players; Sorenson, USC’s Toa Lobendahn and UW’s Coleman Shelton.

Dave Rimington, the award's namesake, was a consensus first-team All-America center at the University of Nebraska in 1981 and 1982, during which time he became the John Outland Trophy's only double winner as the nation's finest college interior lineman.
