ATLANTA – NC State's Garrett Bradbury has been named the 2018 Rimington Trophy winner.

The annual award goes to the nation's most outstanding center.

"It is an unbelievable honor and a dream come true for me to receive the Rimington Trophy," Bradbury said after receiving the award. "I want to thank the Boomer Esiason Foundation, as well as my coaches and teammates. I couldn't have had the success I have without my 'band of brothers'."

After starting his collegiate career at the tight end position, Bradbury moved to offensive guard his redshirt sophomore season and then to center his redshirt junior year.

Bradbury did not allow a quarterback pressure this season.
