Default Re: Why did stapleton make the team over Philip

Others have noted that Stapleton was a Rimington award finalists(for the best center). What impresses me is that he made the award watch list before the 2006 season. At that point in time he was a a junior college transfer who had only played one year at the major college level. Add to that the fact that he played at Rutgers which had a good year in 2006 but was not exactly the center of the collegiate football universe in 2005. and its clear that he has something that gets people's attention.
