2008 CFN Big East Player of the Year

Offensive Player of the Year – Donald Brown, RB Connecticut
After being forced to share carries with Andre Dixon in 2007, Brown rededicated himself to excellence in the offseason. It paid off. He took control of the backfield in September and never relinquished it, rushing for a nation’s-best 1,822 yards and 17 touchdowns on 338 carries. A tough, physical runner between the tackles, he can also outrace defensive backs to the end zone, a combo that’s lured plenty of NFL scouts to East Hartford.

Defensive Player of the Year – Scott McKillop, LB Pittsburgh
McKillop may not be the biggest or the fastest linebacker in the country, but he is one of the best. What he lacks in eye-popping straight-line speed, he more than makes up for with keen instincts and an unparalleled drive to be in on the action. The Big East leader with 126 tackles, he’s also made 16.5 stops behind the line and collected four sacks. The definition of toughness and discipline on defense, he’s been the rock of the Pittsburgh D, two years running.
