AUBURN, Ala. -- It didn't long for Reese Dismukes to be noticed in college. He was a freshman All-American by the end of his first season at Auburn.

He's been showing up on national lists ever since.

The senior-to-be was included Tuesday on the fall watch list for the Rimington Trophy, which goes to the nation's best center, and oh, he knows the routine. Dismukes has been named to the Rimington watch list the last three years, and was one of six finalists for the award last season as he helped anchor an offensive line that produced more rushing yards than any team in Auburn history and led the nation in rushing along the way. 

Dismukes is part of a growing community of Auburn players winning preseason recognition. C.J. Uzomah was named Tuesday to the watch list for the Mackey Award, which goes to the nation's top tight end. Uzomah caught 11 passes for 154 yards and three touchdowns last year. 

Dismukes and Uzomah joined three other Auburn players who received preseason recognition Monday: Quarterback Nick Marshall and receiver Sammie Coates were named to the watch list for the Maxwell Award, which is presented to the nation's top player; and Robenson Therezie won a spot on the watch list for the Chuck Bednarik Award, which goes to the nation's top defender.
