WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – Wake Forest redshirt junior Ryan Anderson has been named to the 2017 Preseason Rimington Award Watch List.

Anderson, a 6-6, 300-pound redshirt junior from Raleigh, N.C. will enter his third year as a starter in 2017. Anderson has started 16 straight games, primarily at right tackle but his versatility allows him to play center, guard or tackle. Entering preseason camp, Anderson is projected as Wake Forest’s starting center but could move elsewhere on the line if needed.

In 2016, Anderson led all Demon Deacon offensive linemen by being on the field for 896 offensive snaps. He was the highest graded offensive lineman in seven of 13 games last year.

The Rimington Trophy, named after former Nebraska All-American center Dave Rimington, is presented annually to the most outstanding center in NCAA FBS football. Since its inception, the Rimington Trophy has raised over $2.9 million for the cystic fibrosis community.
