Despite no Spring Game, we still have 14 practices to evaluate what the offense did this spring.  That includes several scrimmages, both mini-scrimmages and full scrimmages.

First off, here is the list of award winners for the offense.

George Preas Award (MVP) – Logan Thomas
Don Williams TEAM UNITED Award (put team first) – Matt Arkema
Coaches Award (exceptional spring) – David Wang
Frank O. Moseley Award (most hustle) – Randall Dunn
Dr. Richard Bullock Award (most improved) – Corey Fuller
President’s Award (leadership) – Andrew Miller
Paul Torgersen Award (top newcomer) – Michael Holmes

Michael Holmes

Some of those awards are obvious, others aren’t.  Matt Arkema was trying to make the playing rotation at guard, but he put the team first and took snaps at center when Caleb Farris went down with an injury.  Arkema might have helped himself out, because there’s a chance that center will turn out to be his best position at some point down the line.  I could definitely see Arkema and Farris flip-flopping positions in the future.

Randall Dunn exhibited the most hustle, which is no surprise.  He’s a fifth year senior who is trying to get into the playing rotation, and this is his last chance.  Andrew Miller won the leadership award.  He was the only returning starter on the offensive line.  The coaching staff needed him to be vocal, and he was.

Here are my own personal spring awards.

MVP: Logan Thomas
