Center placed on watch list

TCU senior Chase Johnson is on the list of 36 players who have been named to the preliminary 2004 Rimington Award Watch List, which honors college football’s outstanding center.

Johnson, a 6-3, 302-pound center from Shawnee Mission, Kansas, was a second team All-Conference USA selection by the league’s coaches and media members in 2003. Last season, he helped the Horned Frogs log over 200 yards rushing and 200 yards passing per game, one of just seven schools to accomplish the feat. He has started 24 games in his career.

The trophy is named after Dave Rimington, Nebraska’s Hall of Fame center. Boomer Esiason, a college and long-time NFL quarterback, created the award in 2000 to honor the outstanding 1-A center because there was no national award for that position.

The Rimington Trophy’s Division 1-A winner is decided by a consensus of All-America teams that are selected by the Walter Camp Foundation, Football Writers Association of America, American Football Coaches Association and The Sporting News.
