The first player ever to win the coveted Outland Trophy in consecutive years (1981 and 1982), Dave Rimington is one of the most decorated offensive lineman in Nebraska Cornhusker history.

The 6’3”, 290-pound center was a two-time First Team All-American selection in 1981 and 1982 and is one of only 11 Cornhuskers to have his jersey (#50) retired. A three-time First Team All-Conference choice from 1980-82, Rimington was twice named the Big Eight Player of the year in 1981 and 1982. He was named the Big Eight Offensive Player of the Year in 1981. A four-year letterman and three-year starter for Nebraska, Rimington was named team captain and capped off his senior season by winning the 1982 Lombardi Award.

A two-time First Team Academic All-American, Rimington was honored by the NCAA as a Top-Five Student-Athlete and was selected as a National Football Foundation and College Football Hall of Fame Scholar-Athlete in 1982. He was also a three-time First Team Academic All-Big Eight choice from 1980-82.

In 1997, Dave was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame, and in 2004, he was inducted into CoSIDA’s Academic All-American Hall of Fame.
