Chris Anzevino Named To Rimington 2010 Spring Watch List
KENT, Ohio — Kent State junior center
Chris Anzevino (Warren, Ohio) has
been named to the Rimington Trophy 2010 Spring Watch List. Anzevino
is one of 37 players on the preliminary list for the trophy that is
awarded annually to the top center in the Football Bowl
The 6-2, 305-pound Anzevino has started all 24 games for the Golden Flashes for the past two seasons, anchoring an offensive line that paved the way for the 11th-best rushing offense in the nation in 2008. Last season, he was on the field for 839 snaps and did not allow a sack.
Created with the support of the Boomer Esiason Foundation, the award was established in 2000 in honor of Dave Rimington. A two-time All-American at Nebraska, he is the only player to have won the Outland Trophy twice. A member of the College Football Hall of Fame and the College Sports Information Directors of America Academic All-America Hall of Fame, Rimington was a first round draft choice of the Cincinnati Bengals in 1983, where he was a teammate of Esiason's for four years.
Proceeds from the Rimington Trophy Presentation banquet will benefit cystic fibrosis research.
