Marcus Mariota won the Maxwell award for the National Player of the Year tonight as the first player ever from the University of Oregon to win it. He was also announced as the winner of the Walter Camp Foundation Award for National Player of the Year, edging out many of the student-athletes he is competing for the Heisman Trophy against.
He was also named the winner of the Davey O’Brien Award for the National Quarterback of the Year, and recently received the Johnny Unitas Award for the top quarterback who best exemplifies character, scholastic and athletic achievement.
He was also named the Polynesian National College Football Player of the Year winner for epitomizing great ability and integrity.
Marcus has made the great states of Hawaii and Oregon very proud, and we at FishDuck.com could not be more pleased for such a deserving young man. The last award he is a finalist for is the Heisman Trophy, which is to be presented at 5:00 PM Pacific on ESPN Saturday.
