Maryland football: Center Sal Conaboy named to Rimington Trophy Watch List

Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE

Conaboy started all 13 games for Maryland last season and is the fourth Terp ever to be named to the trophy's watch list.

Stefon Diggs isn't the only player getting national recognition in College Park. Starting center Sal Conaboy, the anchor of Maryland's offensive line, was named to the 2014 Rimington Trophy Fall Watch List Tuesday, the committee announced.

The Rimington Trophy is given annually to the top center in the FBS. Conaboy is the fourth Maryland player to be named to its watch list, joining Melvin Fowler (2001), Kyle Schmit (2003 and 2004) and Edwin Williams (2008).

Watch lists are essentially another way of saying "Hey, you did pretty well last season!" You don't have to be on the watch list to win the award (making them mostly useless), but it's a nice bit of recognition for players who sometimes don't always get it -- like centers!

Conaboy started all 13 games at center last year for the Terps and was named to the All-Academic ACC team. He also received the team's Public Service Award at the end of the season, and is the president of Maryland's Uplifting Athletes chapter, a nonprofit that raises awareness for rare diseases among college football players.
