SAN DIEGO - A two-year returning starter, San Diego State junior center Trask Iosefa (Ewa Beach, Hawaii) has been named to the 2009 Spring Watch List for the Rimington Trophy, which was announced Wednesday by the Boomer Esiason Foundation. The annual award is now in its 10th season and is given out to the nation's top collegiate center.
Iosefa has played and started in each of the last 24 games over the past two seasons. He is SDSU's most experienced offensive lineman entering the 2009 campaign, with his 24 starts ranking first among all Aztec offensive players and tying for the most on the team.
Iosefa came to San Diego State in the spring of 2006, before redshirting later that season. He was a first-team all-state selection and all-region pick by PrepStar Magazine while playing at Punahou High School.
The junior is one of three centers from the Mountain West Conference tabbed for this year's Watch List and is among just 44 players overall.
