At the football banquet, the Falcons gave out their year-end awards. Candidly, I don't know what some of these mean, but I commented on a couple as well.
President's Award - Kevin Huelsman
Captain's Award - Loren Hargrove, Antonio Smith, Kory Lichtensteiger, Corey Partridge, Sean O'Drobinak
Coaches' Award - Pete Winovich
Winovich clearly deserves this award. A highly touted Fr. from PA who was a QB and LB, he came to BG and gave up a year for a few plays on special teams, then bounced around from LB to TE to FB. He contributed to this year's team nearly anonymously, blocking for running plays and protecting the QB, and making a few plays, like the fake FG against UT. He was a selfless player who put team before self.
Carlos Jackson Award - Loren Hargrove
Doyt Perry Award - VAN & TRACY WRIGHT
Glenn Sharp Award - CAL BOWERS
Ken Schoeni Award - Pat Watson
Orange Helmet Award - Sean O'Drobinak
Another player who put team over self, O-Drob switched positions before his senior season from TE to DT, played hurt most of the season, and for it all was promoted to captain during the season. A true Falcon.
Willie Geter is going to be a great player. He is tough, and fast. Garrett Wolfe-like. If he can stay healthy, he will rack on yards on top of yards.Vrvilo stepped in and had one of the best seasons a kicker at BG has ever had.
Top Defensive Lineman - Diyral Briggs
