  • 2015 Rimington Trophy Spring Watch List

    BOISE, Idaho - Redshirt senior center Marcus Henry was named to the 2015 Rimington Trophy Spring Watch List, the award's committee announced Tuesday. The Rimington Trophy is awarded annually to the nation's top center.

    Henry, a first-team All-Mountain West selection in 2014, started all 14 games at center during Boise State's run to the Mountain West and VIZIO Fiesta Bowl titles. The Bellevue, Wash. native helped anchor the line for a Bronco offense that in 2014 led the Mountain West in scoring (39.7 ppg) and total offense (494.3 ypg), while ranking ninth and 14th nationally in those categories, respectively.

    The Boise State line also opened holes for a Bronco running game that averaged 213.9 rushing yards per game, highlighted by the All-American season of running back Jay Ajayi, who ran for 1,823 yards and 28 touchdowns and was drafted by the Miami Dolphins in the fifth round of the NFL Draft earlier this month.

    Henry's leadership at the center position also helped anchor the protection of quarterback Grant Hedrick, who led the nation in completion percentage (70.8) in addition to throwing for 3,696 yards and 23 touchdowns.

    Over his Boise State career Henry has appeared in 37 games, making 25 starts over the past two seasons.
