Best Army Offensive Player

QB Kelvin Hopkins, Sr. 
Like all Army quarterbacks, he’s really a running back, but he can throw a little, too. He’ll never be Tom Brady, but as long as he’s able to hit the deep ball a few times a game, he’s doing his job. He only completed 55% of his passes – getting about 60% would be nice – but he’s been an amazing passer compared to recent Knight QBs. But that’s not why you called – he’s the runner who makes the O go.

The 5-10, 205-pounder is tough and can handle the work, running 208 times for 1,017 yards and 17 touchdowns. He keeps the chains moving and keeps the offense in good situations, and now he’s a seasoned veteran.

Best Army Defensive Player

LB Cole Christiansen, Sr. 
The 6-2, 225-pounder might not be all that big from his spot in the middle, but he’s got great range, can get behind the line, and will get in on everything. He came up with 77 tackles with a sack and 12 tackles for loss, continuing to be a steady force who can be a volume tackler when things are funneled his way. As the veteran leader of the defense – and a rebuilding linebacking corps – it’ll be his job to do even more to hold up.
