Forsyth Selected To Rimington Trophy Watch List


NEW YORK — Oregon’s Alex Forsyth has been selected to the preseason watch list for the Rimington Trophy, the award that honors the top center in college football.
This is the first career appearance on the Rimington watch list for Forsyth, a Pac-12 second-team all-conference selection by the league’s coaches in 2020. The Ducks have had a finalist for the Rimington Trophy three times in program history – Max Unger in 2008 and Hroniss Grasu in 2013 and 2014.
Forsyth was the anchor of Oregon’s offensive line in 2020, leading the team with 440 total offensive snaps while allowing just one sack and four total pressures on 231 pass-blocking downs. The West Linn, Ore., native finished as Pro Football Focus’ second-highest graded center in the Pac-12 and 17th in the nation at 74.2.
Forsyth’s total PFF grade ranked 12th-best among all Pac-12 offensive lineman, and he led all Pac-12 centers and ranked 14th in the country with a 78.2 pass-blocking grade. Forsyth helped Oregon earn Offensive Line of the Week honors by PFF following the season opener vs. Stanford, when the Ducks finished as one of just four FBS units to earn grades above 80.0 in both pass protection and run blocking.
