It’s not a small watch list — 66 players are on it — but among them is Evan Boehm. Missouri’s junior center was named to the watch list for the 2014 Rimington Trophy, which honors the nation’s top center.

Boehm started all 14 games at center last season, anchoring a Mizzou offensive line that helped produce a rushing game that averaged 237.9 yards per game, ranking second in the SEC and 16th nationally.

Boehm has been a mainstay on the Tigers’ O-line since his 2012 freshman season, in which he started all 12 games at left guard and earned first-team freshman All-America recognition from College Football News. He switched to center during spring drills in 2013.
