Michigan center David Molk has been named the winner of the 2011 Rimington Trophy. Several college football awards are being handed out on Thursday night, and by winning the award, Molk became the second Michigan player to be named the recipient of the Rimington Trophy (David Baas won the award in 2004).
Via Angelique Chengelis, here is what Molk had to say after winning the award, which is given out annually to the best center in college football:
Molk on Rimington: "it feels great to be recognized. I'll cherish this for the rest of my life"
Molk, who is a fifth-year senior and a team captain for Michigan, was named the Big Ten Offensive Lineman of the Year last week. (That award is also named after Dave Rimington.) Molk was also named to the coaches' All-Big Ten first team, and on Thursday it came out that he is on the 2011 Walter Camp All-America first team along with Michigan State's Jerel Worthy.
