    Re: Barrett Jones wins the Remington Trophy for the Nations Top Center

    Are his brothers going to be equally good at their positions on the team?

    Dave Rimington was the only guy to ever win the Outland twice, but he didn't win a Remington Trophy. Greg Eslinger is the only other guy to win both.

    A case could be made that he's one of the best College Football players ever. Think that's a bit too much? Find anyone whose resume matches with what he's done on and off the field. Good luck with that.

    I think he was pointing out the spelling discrepancy in the same post.

    The Rimington (with an I) has only been around since 2000, so Dave didnt actually win one. he did however win the Outland Trophy, twice. once in 81 and again in 82.

    Re: Barrett Jones wins the Remington Trophy for the Nations Top Center

    I can't wait until they announce Barrett Jones name on ESPN when I'm older that he's been elected into the College Football HoF and I can tell my kids how incredible he was. My father would always tell me how great this OL that went into the HoF was but I never truly understood it until I got to watch the impact Jones made at UA and in college football. He's an example for every player from now on that comes to UA and I hope they all put forth the effort and humbleness that Jones did. Roll Tide Jones, we love you.

    I know I posted this last week, but this is how a boy becomes a Man like Barrett Jones! He is more than just a great football player! http://www.commissionstories.com/vid...-jones?cid=bjp

    Way to go Barrett! that's quite the trophy case!

    Freshman All-American @ RG, 2009, SEC and National Champs!
    3rd Team All-American @ RG, 2010
    Unanimous 1st Team All-American @ LT, 2011, Outland Trophy, Wuerffel Trophy, Jacobs Blocking Trophy, ARA Sportsmanship Award and National Champs
    Consensus 1st Team All-American @ Center, 2012, Campbell Trophy, Rimington Trophy, SEC Champs and more to come!

    If my research is correct, in past 2 years he has more major individual awards than either the PAC-12 or the B10!

    Not bad for a guy that doesn't measure his worth with trophies! RTR

    Just based on that alone, he should be in NYC this weekend as a Heisman finalist. I know it's not a career award, but just looking at that resume, it's hard to see how he is not considered one of the most outstanding players in college football this year.

    Sigh...I guess if Barrett isn't a finalist, then no offensive lineman ever will be.

    All due respect to Harrison, but 2-time All American plus freshman AA is asking a lot.

    I've never heard of anyone winning an award that was actually created in their honor, doesn't matter how long ago Dave Rimington played.

    Hummm ... Luke joeckel, a Jr, and this year's winner of the Outland, is projected to be #1 in the draft if he goes out. I would say that that is good. Also, announcers frequently made note of how much time Manzel had to find an open receiver, one even saying he could take a math test back there!
