Raleigh, N.C. --- NC State junior Leroy Harris has been named to the
watch list for the Dave Rimington Trophy which is awarded annually to
the top collegiate center. The watch list will be updated throughout the
season in the weekly Rimington Reports.
Harris will look to anchor the Pack's offensive line this upcoming
season. He started all 13 games at guard as a redshirt freshman in 2003,
and also the first five games of last year. Harris then moved over to
center in three contests due to injuries along the Pack's offensive
line, but then suffered a shoulder injury and missed the final four
games. He earned honorable mention All-ACC honors last season despite
missing those four games, and led the Pack in Raleigh Rails (driving a
defender back at least five yards) for the second straight year.
The Rimington Trophy recipient is determined by a consensus of the four
All-America teams: The Walter Camp Football Foundation, America
Football Coaches Association, Football Writers Association of America,
and The Sporting News.
