NEW YORK CITY - University of Notre Dame senior center Dan Wenger (Coral Springs, Fla./St. Thomas Aquinas High School) was named to the 2009 Rimington Trophy Spring Watch List, the Rimington Trophy committee announced Wednesday.

Wenger was one of 44 players selected to the watch list for the trophy awarded to the nation's top center.

An intelligent and gritty center that has started the last 15 games at center, Wenger is one of four returning starters on Notre Dame's offensive line. He has started 18 of the 21 games he has appeared in his career and anchored the offensive line unit in 2008 that cut the number of sacks allowed from 58 to 22.

The Rimington Trophy is awarded to the center with the most first team All-America votes. The winner will be honored at a banquet at the Rococo Theater in Lincoln, Neb., on Jan. 16, 2010. The 10-year old trophy is presented by the Boomer Esiason Foundation and since its inception has helped raise over $1.3 million for the award's benefactor.
