Four Mid-American Conference Centers Named to 2014 Rimington Trophy Watch Liist

The MAC has four players named to the Rimington Trophy Watch List, which selects the best center in college football.

This morning 66 of the best centers from across the country were named to the 2014 Rimington Trophy Watch List and four of them were from the Mid-American Conference.

The Rimington Trophy is named after Wisconsin great Dave Rimington who was selected in the first round of the NFL by the Cincinnati Bengals in 1983.

Bowling Green's Alex Huettel, Central Michigan's Nick Beamish, Toledo's Greg Mancz, and Western Michigan's Jon Hoffing were all among the 66 players named to the Rimington Trophy Watch List. Below we'll run through each of the four MAC centers named to the watch list of this prestigious award.

Alex Huettel, a redshirt junior, was named second team All-MAC last year at right guard for the MAC Champions.

Nick Beamish is a redshirt senior who has been a familiar face for Chippewa fans over the past few seasons collecting 25 consecutive starts during his career. Beamish was also named Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2012.

Greg Mancz, a 6-foot-5 300-pound redshirt senior from Cincinnati, Ohio, has started every game in his Rocket career. Mancz was selected to the second team All-MAC last year and was a big part in the Rockets' explosive offense.

Jon Hoffing is a redshirt senior for the Broncos who became a starter on the offensive line last season, however he he started all 12 games and was a very consistent player on their offensive line. With an inexperienced team this year, younger players will look up to Hoffing this year since he is one of the top linemen in the MAC.
