Dave Rimington's Biography

From Kelly Faiman, Director of the Rimington Football Camp

Dave Rimington resides in New York City and is the President of the Boomer Esiason Foundation. The Foundation has raised more than $90 million toward finding a cure for cystic fibrosis.

After a Hall of Fame college career as an offensive lineman for the Nebraska Cornhuskers, followed by an eight-year NFL career, Dave really looks forward to returning to Omaha each summer to work with the kids from his hometown. He is committed to returning each year to help teach children and teens what it means to be a true champion.

Dave enjoys working with the camp participants and visiting with their family and friends. If you participated in last summer’s camp, you know that Coach Rimington and the other coaches made the camp an awesome experience!

Dave is considered by many to be the best college lineman of all time. His college career ended with an impressive list of achievements:

Outland Trophy - 1981 & 1982 (the only player to win this award twice)
The Lombardi Award – 1982
Big Eight Offensive Player of the Year - 1982
Orange Bowl Offensive Player of the Game - 1982

Three-time All-Conference
Two-time Academic All-American

The Cincinnati Bengals made Dave their first round pick in the 1983 draft. As the Bengals center, Dave was named to the All-Rookie Team in 1983 and won the Ed Block Courage Award in 1986. From 1987-90, Dave played for the Philadelphia Eagles and helped the team reach the playoffs three consecutive years. He ended up playing in the NFL for eight seasons before injuries forced him out of the game.

After his NFL career, Dave pursued a master’s degree in international business at the University of Wisconsin. At Wisconsin, Dave gained valuable coaching experience as a graduate assistant under Head Coach Barry Alvarez, and he helped turn around the struggling Badger team. The turnaround culminated in 1993 when the Badgers won the Big 10 and the Rose Bowl. After graduation, Dave moved to New York to join the Boomer Esiason Foundation.

Dave is looking forward to working with local high school coaches from Millard South, Omaha South, Bellevue West and Omaha Burke. The coaching will be the best in the business and committed to teaching football the right way!
