What a great year for USF QB Quinton Flowers. After establishing himself as the Bulls all time single season rusher with 1,425 yards this season as well as passing for 2,551 passing yards, the American Athletic Conference named him the offensive player of the year. Oh by the way he broke the school record from yards from scrimmage. His season was the eighth best rushing season for a QB in Division 1.
One of the best players in the country, that most people don’t know about, Flowers led to the Bulls to a 10-2 record, their best regular finish in school history. In addition, the Bulls are ranked 10th nationally in total offense with 331.3 ypg.
Also RB Marlon Mack was named first team All-AAC. Rushing for 1,137 yards and 15 TDs this season, Mack was a great compliment to Flowers in the Bulls backfield. For a squad that had such a great season, this was a great honor. In addition, it’s no surprise that LT Kofi Amichia was also first team all conference. Someone was opening up all those holes for the Flowers/Mack tandem.
Riding up I-4, UCF DB Shaquem Griffin has been named defensive player of the year for the American Athletic conference. Huge honor for Griffin, who had a fantastic year for the Golden Knights.
All of these players are going to have a big stage once the bowl match ups are announced.
