With the Mustangs' bowl games just days away, it's time to reveal the PonyStampede.com awards, presented by Lakewood's 1st & 10. Who will be taking home the offensive and defensive MVP?
It's amazing to think that fans were hoping a freshman could step in for Shawnbrey McNeal this season. This whole time we had a special running back right under our nose and we didn't even know it? Line had almost 1400 yards rushing, best in C-USA. He was named 1st team all offensive, but admitted last week he was more excited about winning the PonyStampde.com offensive MVP.
coaching staff could see glimpses of Davis last year, it's why as a true freshman he got reps in 2009. No one expected he would be this good. Not only did he require extra attention by offensive coordinators, but he made the other linebackers and the defensive line better with his ability to rush the passer. (Picture By: Matthew Visinsky)
Offensive Senor Who Will Be Missed Most:
The debate for the senior wide out to be the offensive MVP of the season is a strong one. He did have his second 1000 yard season in his career and had 13 touchdown catches. Robinson was just as good as Sanders was last year, if not better. Think, he didn't have another Robinson on the opposite side of the field with him.
Defensive Senior Who Will Be Missed Most:
Many will debate how Pete Fleps
should win this award. It's a fair argument. But Moore's impact on the field when playing showed how important he really was this season. When in there, not only was he a lock down corner, but took stress off of Richard Crawford
. Plus, he was the Mustangs best tackler at the corner position.
Ready For A Breakout Season in 2011:
After earning All-CUSA honorable mention honors this year, expect the junior college transfer to be better in 2011. As the season has gone on, Crawford has gotten stronger and stronger at playing the position.
