Rimington Trophy

NORMAN, Okla.-A Potawatomi tribal member, Creed Humphrey, was one of three finalists this year for the Rimington Trophy honoring the nation's top center.

A redshirt sophomore and team captain from Shawnee, Okla., Humphrey has started 25 of his 27 career games for the University of Oklahoma Sooners at the center position. He is the anchor of a line that has paved the way for Oklahoma to lead the nation with 8.2 yards per play and 11.4 yards per pass attempt (min. 10 attempts per game) and rank second nationally in yards per game (554.2), third in yards per completion (16.0) and passing efficiency rating (195.9), fifth in third-down conversion percentage (50.7) and eighth in yards per rush (6.1). In 799 plays this season, Humphrey has registered 93 knockdowns without allowing a sack.

On top of being named a Rimington Trophy finalist, Humphrey was named Big 12 Co-Offensive Lineman of the Year, a first-team All-Big 12 selection and a first-team midseason All-American by ESPN, and was an Academic All-Big 12 Second Team honoree. The OU offensive line unit is also a semifinalist for the Joe Moore Award, which the Sooners won in 2018 with Humphrey at center.

The Rimington Trophy is presented annually to the most outstanding center in NCAA Division I College Football. Dave Rimington, the award's namesake, was a consensus first-team All-America center at the University of Nebraska in 1981 and 1982, during which time he became the Outland Trophy's only two-time winner as the nation's finest college interior lineman.
