Bulldogs Named To Both Rimington, Mackey Watch Lists

Senior center David Andrews has been named to the Rimington Trophy Watch List and junior tight end Jay Rome has been included on the John Mackey Award Watch List.

Andrews is one of 66 centers named to the Rimington list and one of 11 players from the Southeastern Conference included. Rome is one of 38 tight ends on the Mackey list and one of seven from the league.

Semifinalists for the Rimington Trophy and Mackey Award will be announced November 3. Three finalists will be announced November 24 and the winners will be announced December 11 during the annual Home Depot College Football Awards Show.

Andrews, a native of Johns Creek, Ga., started all 13 games in 2013 and was a 14-game starter at center for the Bulldogs two years ago. He anchored an offensive line that allowed Georgia to average 484.2 yards per game and 36.7 points a game last season. Andrews also protected quarterback Aaron Murray on his way to four SEC career records.

Rome, a native of Valdosta, Ga., recorded nine catches for 99 yards in eight games last season. Rome missed the final four games of the 2013 season after snagging 11 catches for 152 yards and two touchdowns in 2012, including a 19-yard scoring catch versus Alabama in the SEC Championship Game.

The Bulldogs start the season at home in Sanford Stadium versus Clemson on August 30. ESPN will televise the 5:30 p.m. matchup.
