Kody Koebensky Named to 2013 Rimington Trophy Watch List

The Sun Devils' center will be the starting center for his second straight year and he has an opportunity to give Tempe's offensive line some national recognition.


The Sun Devils have yet another impressive student-athlete on a preseason football award list.

Senior Kody Koebensky has been named to the Rimington Trophy Spring Watch List, which is awarded to the most outstanding center in NCAA Division I football.

Forty-four total players were named to the watch list, including five from the Pac-12. The Scottsdale, native has played in 29 career games and started all 13 games last season under center. He was the catalyst that helped the Sun Devils accumulate a 205.5 yards per game average on the ground, which is the second best average in the last 25 years.

Quarterback Taylor Kelly was top-ten in the country in pass efficiency for the majority of the 2012-13 season, and he finished the year in the top 15. Koebensky and his four war partners in the trenches helped the sophomore quarterback finish with a school record 67.1 completion percentage to go along with the phenomenal running game.

The Sun Devils are stacked with NFL-bound talent on the offensive side of the ball and the 6-foot-3, 290-pound grad student will get plenty of chances to pave the way for his teammates.

Koebensky graduated in May with a Bachelor of Science degree in political science, a minor in sociology and an International Studies Certificate.

The winner of the fourteenth annual Rimington Trophy will be honored on January 11, 2014.
