Question - Do we need another post season award? Answer - Yes. But one, just one.
We present to you the Roundup’s post season awards based entirely on science, statistical analysis, guts, and blatant favoritism. Let’s get to it.
Offensive Player of the Year: Trevone Boykin Quarterback TCU
Trevone Boykin did almost everything for the Horned Frogs. He was the definition of clutch and even hobbled his way to a gutsy late season win over Baylor, playing at 70% of capacity. 70% of Trevone Boykin is better than 100% of most people. Boykin threw for 3,575 yards and ran for another 612.
Boykin was sixth in Total QBR in all of college football and had 31 TDs to only 10 interceptions. As for QBR, in the middle of the season, against Texas, Kansas State, Iowa State, and West Virginia, no quarterback was better. After Boykin's injury his numbers fell, so did TCU's chances of a playoff birth, but Boykin still led the Frogs to 10 victories and a scrumptious Alamo Bowl matchup with Oregon.
Boykin edges out two fellow QBs, Greg Ward Jr. of Houston and Patrick Mahomes of Tech. He also edges out Tech running back monster DeAndre Washington.
We'll send Trevone our usual POTY gift bag which includes three monster truck magazines, two errr, one and half tins of pringles, an autographed photo of Gordy Howe and several, various ball point pens. Enjoy Trevone.
