Shipley is being watched

A.Q. Shipley has been named to his third preseason watch list.

Penn State senior A.Q. Shipley has been named to the Watch List for the Rimington Trophy, presented to the nation's top center.

The pre-season recognition is Shipley's third thus far for the 2008 campaign. He previously was named to the Watch Lists for the Rotary Lombardi Award and Outland Trophy.

That's a lot of people keeping an eye on the anchor of Penn State's line. Not only will Shipley be looked at to take his game to the next level but A.Q. will have to be the vocal leader of the offense. Provided he can avoid the injury bug (God please), I think this will be Shipley's year to shine, especially with the people around him.
