Joining teammate Ted Bolser in earning preseason recognition, IU fifth-year senior center Will Matte has been named to the Rimington Trophy Fall Watch List, the Rimington Trophy Committee announced Tuesday morning.

The Rimington Trophy is awarded annually to the most outstanding center in NCAA Division I football.

Matte started the first 32 games of his career at center before suffering an injury in week eight at Wisconsin last season. Overall, he made nine starts and appeared in 10 games in 2011.

Matte helped the Hoosiers rush for 1,374 yards in Big Ten Play in 2011, the team’s highest total since 2001. A seven-time game captain, Matte was also named to the Rimington Trophy Spring Watch List.

The winner will be announced at the Rimington Trophy presentation banquet on Jan. 12, 2013 at the Rococo Theatre in Lincoln, Neb.
