Been out of order for the past day and a half, so I didn't get around to James Conner being named to the All-ACC Conference teams (as well as Tyler Boyd, T.J. Clemmings, and Matt Rotheram, by the way) yesterday. But part of me figured I'd wait until today, anyway, since I expected Conner to win the Player of the Year award.
Conner won both the ACC Offensive Player of the Year and overall ACC Player of the Year awards officially on Wednesday, and while the conference had its fair share of quality players, it's really difficult to find one (at least on offense - Gerod Holliman and Vic Beasley had amazing defensive seasons) that should have won ahead of him.
We've been over his lofty achievements already, but let's have another look at his legendary season. Conner rushed for 1,675 yards, tops in the ACC and fourth in the nation. He had more than just volume, though, racking up six yards per carry. And when you throw in his conference-leading 24 rushing touchdowns, he was clearly the best offensive player in the ACC.
Honor well deserved.
