Penn State Football: Carter And Mangiro Pick Up Watch List Honors

by on July 08, 2015 2:00 PM

The preseason watch list honors continue to roll in for Penn State football players.

Senior center Angelo Mangiro has been named to the Rimington Trophy Watch List, while senior tight end Kyle Carter is on the Mackey Award Watch List.

The Rimington Trophy, named for two-time Outland Trophy winner Dave Rimington of Nebraska, is presented annually to the Most Outstanding Center in NCAA Division I-A College Football.

A.Q. Shipley is Penn State’s lone winner of the Rimington Trophy, claiming the award in 2008.

The Mackey Awards is given annually to the most outstanding collegiate tight end. The award is named after NFL Hall of Fame member John Mackey.

Last year Mangiro let his flexibility shine through, starting every game and making starts at three different positions. He made 10 starts at center, two at right tackle and one at right guard.

Carter is on the Mackey Award Preseason Watch List for the second straight year. Carter hauled in 16 receptions for 153 yards last season. Among the most experienced returning players on the roster, Carter has played in 34 of the last 37 games, including 16 career starts. A three-time Academic All-Big Ten honoree, he graduated in December 2014 with a degree in kinesiology.

As the season progresses, the Rimington Trophy committee will continue to watch all players on the watch list and will announce the finalists on December 7, 2015. The 2015 Mackey Semifinalists will be announced on November 16, 2015 with the announcement of finalists coming on November 24, 2015. The 2015 John Mackey recipient will be announced on December 9, 2015. Both awards will be presented live on December 10, 2015 as part of The Home Depot College Football Awards.

Both Carter and Mangiro join the Penn State award watch list party. Quarterback Christian Hackenberg and sophomore wide receiver DaeSean Hamilton are among the candidates for the Maxwell Award for the National Player of the Year. Senior defensive tackle Anthony Zettel is a nominee for the Bednarik Award for the National Defensive Player of the Year.
