Ragin’ Cajun Football Player Being Eyed For National Award

Andre Huval

UL – Lafayette’s Andre Huval has been placed on the Rimington Trophy Pre-season Watch List for the second consecutive year. He’s one of 17 repeat members. The National College Football Awards Association presents the annual award to the top center in the country. The NCFA  released the 44-player list on Tuesday.

“After the season that Andre had last year, we expected him to be a member of the Rimington Trophy Watch List again this year.  Andre not only elevated his level of play last year, but you could see him develop into one of the leaders on the offense.”
– Louisiana head coach Mark Hudspeth

The 6-1, 285-pound Huval is a senior from Scott, La. He earned second team All-Sun Belt honors last year, starting all 13 games. Huval played all but 12 offensive snaps in 2012, leading an offensive line that allowed just 13 sacks.
Huval is a graduate of St. Thomas More High School. The Cajuns set a school record 5,914 yards of total offense last season. Quarterback Terrance Broadway set a school season record for total offense with 3,611 yards (769 rushing, 2,842 passing), with Huval anchoring the offensive line.
The Rimington Trophy is named after former Nebraska All-American Dave Rimington, the only player in history to receive the Outland Trophy twice. Rimington won the award in both 1981 and 1982. The Rimington Trophy was first awarded in 2000. It’s helped  raise more than $2 million for the Boomer Esiason Foundation, dedicated to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis, and over $100 million for CF Research. Esiason and Rimington were teammates at Nebraska.
