Beavers Isaac Seumalo Named to the Rimington Trophy Watch ListSalem-News.com Sports
Seumalo, a Corvallis native and son of OSU defensive line coach Joe Seumalo, has started all 25 games in which he’s played in his two-year career.
(CORVALLIS, Ore. ) - Oregon State center Isaac Seumalo has been named to the Rimington Trophy Fall Watch List, the Rimington Trophy Committee announced Tuesday.
Seumalo is among 66 nominees honoring the most outstanding center in college football. The athletes on the list have excelled at the center position and demonstrated team leadership, and are predicted to do so again in the upcoming season.
Seumalo, a Corvallis native and son of OSU defensive line coach Joe Seumalo, has started all 25 games in which he’s played in his two-year career. The junior will serve as one of four teams captains for the 2014 season after being voted to the position by his teammates in the spring.
While more than a dozen All-America teams are selected annually, the Rimington Trophy committee used these three prestigious teams to determine a winner: Walter Camp Foundation, Sporting News and Football Writers Association of America.
Because the selectors of these three All-America teams can place centers in a “mix” of offensive linemen that includes guards and tackles, their 11-man first teams can often have two centers. The Rimington Trophy committee’s policy is to count all players that play primarily the center position for their respective teams as centers, even though they may be listed as guards or tackles on the four All-America teams.
The center with the most first team votes will be determined the winner. If there is a tie with first team votes, then the center with the most second team votes will win. If there is still a tie, the winner will be determined by the majority vote from the Rimington Trophy committee.
The winner will be recognized at the Rimington Trophy Presentation at the Rococo Theatre in Lincoln, Neb. on Saturday, January 17, 2015.
Oregon State returns to the practice field in preparation for the upcoming season Aug. 4 with the season opener Aug. 30 at Reser Stadium against Portland State.
Season tickets remain available in all sections of the stadium, including those that require an Our Beaver Nation donation. Those purchases can be made by contacting the ticket office via this link, or during business hours at Gill Coliseum or at 1-800-GO-BEAVS.
The seven game home schedule includes the 118th version of the Civil War, presented by The Oregon College Savings Plan, PacificSource Health Plans, Your Local Ford Stores, Wells Fargo and McDonald’s. The remainder of the home slate includes Portland State, San Diego State, Utah, California, Washington State and Arizona State.
