Reese Dismukes was selected by the Rotary Lombardi Award Committee for their pre-season watch list on Monday. It was the third pre-season list the Auburn Center has been named to this year. The award recognizes the nation’s top college down lineman on offense or defense.
Reese has also made the Watch List for the Rimington Trophy. A finalist last year, it is the third consecutive year for Reese to be selected as one of the college football’s best centers.
Last Thursday he was joined by Guard Alex Kozan and Defensive Tackle Gabe Wright on the Outland Trophy Watch List. The Outland goes to the nation’s top interior lineman.
Dismukes anchored a line last season that paved the way for Auburn to have the number one rushing offense in the country. It was an All-SEC year for Reese who graded out above 90 percent and had 124 knockdown blocks. So 2014 expectations are naturally high for the Auburn senior.
Congratulations Reese and War Eagle!
