PISCATAWAY, N.J. (May 21, 2013) – Rutgers junior center Betim Bujari (Secaucus, N.J.) was one of 44 players named to the Rimington Award Watch List Tuesday. The Rimington Award is given annually to the nation’s top center.
The winner will be honored at the Rimington Trophy presentation banquet on Jan. 11, at the Rococo Theater in Lincoln, Neb.
Bujari completed his first full year as the starting center in 2012. He was part of an offensive line that paved the way for a 1,000-yard rusher and allowed the eighth-fewest sacks in the nation.
