 ALL-BIG EAST OFFENSE
Offensive Player of the Year
QB Brian Brohm, Louisville

The 6-4, 224-pound junior is coming off an torn ACL that cost him the last two games of the season, but that didn't stop him from being the Big East Offensive Player of the Year. He has the arm, the smarts, and the touch to be a next-level star, and now he has to prove he can be the type of quarterback who can carry his team to a conference title.

ALL-BIG EAST DEFENSE
Defensive Player of the Year
LB Stephen Nicholas, South Florida

Nicholas has seen time at both outside positions and has been dominant at each spot with 224 career tackles, with 12.5 sacks and 38.5 tackles for loss. While he's not huge at 6-3 and 226 pounds, he hits like a Mack truck and has phenomenal range. Despite his lack of size, he would've been around an early round draft pick had he left early.
