Junior C Evan Boehm
July 8, 2014
COLUMBIA, Mo. - Junior center Evan Boehm (Lee's Summit, Mo.) was named to the 2014 Rimington Trophy Fall Watch List, the award's committee announced Tuesday. Mizzou Football's leader in the middle of the offensive line is one of 66 centers from across the country named to the list. The Rimington Trophy is presented annually to the most outstanding center in college football.
Boehm started all 14 games at center last season, anchoring Mizzou's 12-2 campaign that garnered a Southeastern Conference Eastern Division title and Cotton Bowl Classic championship. Mizzou's rushing offense (237.9 yards per game) ranked second in the SEC and 16th nationally.
Boehm has been a mainstay on the Tigers' offensive line since he arrived in Columbia as a freshman in 2012, a season in which he started all 12 games at left guard and earned First Team Freshman All-America recognition from College Football News. He made the move to center during spring drills in 2013.
The fifteen-year old Rimington award is overseen by the Boomer Esiason Foundation, which is committed to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis and has raised over $100 million for CF Research.
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.
