2017 CFN American Athletic Offensive Player of the Year

QB McKenzie Milton, Soph. UCF

Someone had to be in charge of the unstoppable offense. Milton might not be all that big at just 5-11 and 185 pounds, but he can bomb away, hitting 69% of his passes for 3,795 yards and 35 touchdowns with nine picks. He also ran for almost 500 yards with seven scores.

2017 CFN American Athletic Defensive Player of the Year

DT Ed Oliver, Soph. Houston

Could he build on his great freshman season? Despite being keyed on, he still produced with 69 tackles with 5.5 sacks and 14.5 tackles for loss. He was once against way too good – he’s ready for the NFL.

2017 CFN American Athletic Coach of the Year

Scott Frost, UCF

How many teams are still undefeated going into the bowl season? He set the tone right away against FIU, and his team didn’t stop until it rolled through the American Athletic Conference – and deal with a hurricane along the way – to get to 12-0 to become one of the stories of the 2017 season.
