Michigan Wolverines center David Molk was named the recipient of the 2o11 Rimington Trophy which is awarded annually to the nation’s top center. Molk was also named a Walter Camp Foundation First-Team All-American. ”I am truly humbled to be the Rimington Trophy recipient,” said Molk. “It’s such an honor considering all of the great centers around the country, including the other finalists. It’s an individual award, but it’s a credit to our offensive line, our team and our coaching staff. I’m proud to represent the University of Michigan.”
Molk, a 5th year senior, anchored Michigan’s offensive line which paved the way for two 1,000 yard rushers this season (Denard Robinson and Fitzgerald Toussaint). He also earned All-Big Ten honors and was named the inaugural Big Ten Rimington-Pace Offensive Lineman of the Year.
Molk will make his 26th consecutive start on January 3rd when Michigan takes on Virginia Tech in the Sugar Bowl.
