Oregon Ducks Center Hroniss Grasu Makes Rimington Trophy Watch List


Oregon Center Hroniss Grasu is the second Oregon Ducks Football player to be named to a 2014 Watch List in the last week. Earlier Cornerback Ifo Ekpre-Olomu was named to the watch list for the Lott Impact Trophy for the best Corner in the nation. As we approach the start of the upcoming season there will likely be more names to add to Watch Lists from the Oregon Ducks Football team.

Grasu is entering his senior season with the Oregon Ducks and decided in the offseason, along with Starting Quarterback Marcus Mariota to return for another season with the team and for a chance to play in the very first College Football Playoff set to begin this season. The Oregon Center joins a rather lengthy list on the Rimington Watch List  including some from the Pac-12 with Oregon State Center Isaac Seumalo and Washington Center Mike Christe.

In 2013 Grasu anchored the best Offensive Line in the Pac-12 Conference that led the league in rushing with over 270 yards of offense for the eighth year in a row and also led the Conference in scoring with an average 45.5 points per contest.
