Every Remington Trophy winner by year

Starting in the year 2000, the National College Football Awards Association helped create a new trophy to award at the end of each college football season.

The Rimington Trophy is awarded yearly to the most outstanding center in college football.

The trophy is named for Dave Rimington, who played center for the University of Nebraska from 1979 to 1982.

Rimington is considered the greatest center and one of the greatest offensive linemen in college football history.

During his career, he was a consensus First-Team All-American in 1981 and 1982.  

In 1981 he was named the AP Big Eight Offensive Player of the Year, the only time in Big Eight history that a lineman earned that honor. In addition, he is the only two-time winner of the Outland Trophy, given to the top interior lineman in college football.

He placed fifth in the Heisman Trophy balloting in 1982, receiving 13 first-place votes.

He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1997. The resume speaks for itself.

The award’s winner is determined by selecting the consensus All-American centers from four organizations (American Football Coaches Association, Walter Camp Foundation, The Sporting News, Football Writers Association of America).

The center with the most first-place votes is the winner. See the winners of the award since its inception in the year 2000 below.
