University of Idaho sophomore center ADAM KORBY of Fort Collins, Colorado has been named to the 2006 Rimington Trophy Watch List.

University of Idaho redshirt sophomore center Adam Korby, a 6-3, 295 pound athlete out of Fort Collins, Colorado, has been named to the 2006 Rimington Trophy Watch List. Korby was the ONLY Vandal lineman to start every game last season, being named Idaho's starting center as a redshirt freshman for the season opener against Washington State. He earned Idaho's Iron Man team award at the end of the 2005 season.

Adam joins Samson Satele of the University of Hawaii and Kyle Young of Fresno State University as the only members of the Western Athletic Conference to be named to the Watch List.
