Best Rice Offensive Player

WR Aaron Cephus, Jr. 
There are a whole lot of issues with the Owls, but the receiving corps is one of the few positives with the 1-2 punch of Austin Trammell and the Cephus, the deep threat. The 6-4, 206-pound veteran caught 40 passes for 565 yards and five scores with 14 yards per grab. He’s one of the team’s few home run hitters, and now he has to get the ball more.

Best Rice Defensive Player

S George Nyakwol, Jr. 
Anthony Ekpe might be the team’s star pass rusher, and there are other promising veterans among the linebackers, but it’s the 6-0, 182-pound Nyakwol who’s doing a bit of everything everywhere. He led the team with 67 tackles with two picks and a sack and three tackles for loss. Fast, great around the ball carrier, and with the potential to do more when the ball is in the air, he’ll be the leader in the secondary.
