Michigan Wolverines fifth year Center David Molk (Lemont, Ill./Lemont Township HS, hey that’s close enough to SICA! Holla!) has been named recipient of the 2011 Rimington Trophy, announced during the ESPN College Football Award Show last night in Disney World.
Molk becomes the second Michigan player to win the Rimington Trophy, named after former Nebraska center and two-time All-American Dave Rimington. David Baas shared the award in 2004.
“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.”
Also during the Award Show on Thursday, Molk also was named a First-Team All-America by the Walter Camp Foundation.
