Tennessee senior center James Stone has been named to the 2013 Rimington Trophy Watch List as announced Tuesday.

Stone is one of nine SEC players named to the watch list, the most of any conference, while the PAC-12 and Mountain West come in second with five players each.

There are 17 returning players from the 2012 Watch List and 44 players total named to this year’s Watch List.

While more than a dozen All-America football teams are selected annually, the Rimington Trophy committee uses these four prestigious teams to determine a winner:

·         American Football Coaches Association

·         Walter Camp Foundation

·         Sporting News

·         Football Writers Association of America

Because the selectors of these four All-America teams can place Centers in a "mix" of offensive linemen that includes guards and tackles, their 11-man first teams can often have two Centers. Our policy is to count all players that play primarily the Center position for their respective teams as Centers, even though they may be listed as guards or tackles on the four All American teams.

The Center with the most first team votes will be determined the winner. If there is a tie with first team votes, then the Center with most second team votes will win. If there is still a tie, the winner will be determined by the Rimington Trophy committee.

The winner will be honored at Rimington Trophy Presentation banquet at the Rococo Theater in Lincoln, Nebraska on Jan. 11, 2014.
