3. TOP EAST CAROLINA PLAYERS

Best East Carolina Offensive Player

QB Holton Ahlers, Soph.
He’s in a fight with Reid Herring for the starting job, but be shocked if he’s not the main man for the offense. The 6-3, 236-pounder was one of the few bright spots in the team’s season, throwing for 1,785 yards and 12 touchdowns with three picks, and leading the Pirates with 592 rushing yards and six touchdowns. However, he has to be far, far more accurate and consistent, failing to connect on half of his throws.

4. WR Deondre Farrier, Soph.
5. RB Hussein Howe, Sr.

Best East Carolina Defensive Player

S Davondre Robinson, Jr.
The Pirates need a few defensive players to emerge as stars and difference-makers. They need more takeaways, more sacks now that Nate Harvey is gone, and more good parts. Robinson is coming off a solid sophomore season, finishing second on the team with 77 tackles with three broken up passes. He has to do more when the ball is in the air, but he’s a good veteran player who should grow into a bigger producer.
