The award is named after former Nebraska center Dave Rimington, the only two-time winner of the Outland Trophy.
THIS YEARS WINNER…
GARRETT BRADBURY, NORTH CAROLINA STATE WOLFPACK
Bradbury, a fifth-year senior, anchored an N.C. State offensive line that helped running back Reggie Gallaspy rush for 1,012 yards, quarterback Ryan Finley throw for 3,789 yards and receivers Kelvin Harmon (1,1866) and Jakobi Meyers (1,028) both crack the 1,000-yard barrier.
But the success of his teammates, and the work and time spent with the rest of N.C. State’s offensive line — the “Band of Brothers” — means more to Bradbury than any award.
“Individual honors for the offensive line are kind of any oxymoron,” Bradbury said. “Everything starts and ends as a group.”
Named a team captain for the 2018 season, Bradbury played 99.0% (901 of 910) of the snaps for the Wolfpack this season. He did not allow a quarterback pressure all season and was named a first team All-ACC performer (the first first-team selection for a Wolfpack center since 1987) as well as being named a semifinalist for the Outland Trophy – the only center on that list. Most recently, Bradbury scored a touchdown in the final regular season game against East Carolina, rushing the ball from the one-yard line.
