Al Johnson, a senior center with the Wisconsin football team, has been named to the Rimington Trophy preseason "watch list." The award annually goes to the nation's top center.
It is the third "watch list" on which Johnson is included. He also is on the Lombardi Award and Outland Trophy lists.
The Rimington Trophy is named after Dave Rimington, college football's most decorated offensive lineman. Rimington is the only player ever to win the Outland Trophy twice. The former University of Nebraska center also won the Lombardi Award in 1982 and was named a two-time consensus All-America center and two-time Academic All-American. Rimington also was a graduate assistant coach at Wisconsin.
