SALT LAKE CITY – Former Corner Canyon standout and Oregon Ducks center Jackson Powers-Johnson is the 2023 Rimington Trophy winner.

The Rimington Trophy is awarded to the nation’s most outstanding center.

Powers-Johnson is a Draper, Utah native. He attended Corner Canyon where he was on varsity for all four years and a captain for three years.

Coming out of high school, Powers-Johnson was a four-star recruit, the 6th-best recruit in the state of Utah, and a top-5 center in the nation.

Powers-Johnson had a terrific year with the Ducks. He allowed just two total pressures and zero sacks in 181 pass-blocking opportunities.

Oregon went 11-2 in 2023. Their only losses came to Washington in week 6 and the Pac-12 Championship.
