Baylor’s Fuller Named To Rimington Trophy Fall Watch List
Junior center one of 63 recognized nationally.

WACO, Texas – Baylor junior center Kyle Fuller was named to the 2015 Rimington Trophy Fall watch list, the award’s committee announced Wednesday. The Rimington Trophy is presented annually to the Most Outstanding Center in NCAA Division I-A College Football.
 

Fuller is one of six Big 12 centers on the list and one of 63 in the country to be recognized.

Last season, Fuller started every game for the Big 12 champion Bears at center. He led the team with 49 knockdowns and earned an 87.3 coaches’ grade for the season, which was fourth best on the squad.

With Fuller serving as its anchor, Baylor’s offensive line blocked for America’s top offense in 2014. BU led the country in total offensive (581.5 ypg) and scoring offense (48.2 ppg).

The junior from Wylie, Texas, was instrumental in helping BU’s ground game succeed as well. In 2014, Baylor ranked 27th nationally with 215.5 rushing yards per game.

He tallied a season-high coaches’ grade of 90 and posted a season-best six knockdowns in a 38-27 win over No. 9 Kansas State on Dec. 6 to help BU win its second-straight conference crown.

Fuller had previously been named to the trophy’s spring watch list in May.

The Rimington Trophy committee uses three All-American teams to determine its winner. The center with the most first team votes on the Walter Camp Foundation, Sporting News and Football Writers Association of America teams will be the winner.

The Rimington Trophy is name for Dave Rimington, who 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.

Finalists for the honor will be announced on Dec. 7. The winner will be recognized at the Rimington Trophy Presentation at the Rococo Theatre in Lincoln, Nebraska on Saturday, January 16, 2016.

Keep up with the Bears all season long by following @BUFootball on Twitter and Instagram.
