A Paw on the Media: College Football Awards

Congratulations to Auburn's Home Depot College Football Award winners!

Cam Newton was awarded the Davey O'Brien Award for the nation's most outstanding quarterback; the Walter Camp Award for the best player in college football; and the Maxwell Award for the nation's best player in college football!

Head Coach Gene Chizik was named Coach of the Year!

I was hoping that Nick Fairley would receive the Jim Thorpe Award (most outstanding defensive back) or the Chuck Bednarik Award (nation's defensive player of the year) but those awards went to Patrick Peterson of LSU.

Previously, Nick Fairley had been awarded the 2010 Rotary Lombardi Award for the top college football lineman on either offense or defense.

The Doak Walker Award for the most outstanding running back went to LaMichael James of the University of Oregon.  James will be a worthy challenger for the Tigers' defense in the BCS National Championship game.

Congratulations to all of the award winners!  For a full breakdown, click here.
