Preseason Offensive Player of the Year

QB Colt McCoy, Sr. Texas
Smith had a bit of a down year completing just 54% of his passes for 3,224 yards and 24 touchdowns with 14 interceptions after throwing for 3,688 yards and 32 touchdowns as a sophomore. The 6-5, 212-pounder is a legitimate pro prospect with a live arm and the ability to get hot and put up big-time numbers from time to time. He ripped apart Central Michigan for 306 yards and two touchdowns on the way to Motor City Bowl MVP honors and threw for 18 of his 24 scores in the final six games. He’s not a runner, but he was able to run for two rushing scores.

2009 Preseason

All-Sun Belt Defense


Preseason Defensive Player of the Year

LB Boris Lee, Sr. Troy
Lee has been one of the Sun Belt’s best players for the last few seasons with 265 tackles and seven interceptions. The 6-0, 231-pound man in the middle has bulked up in a big way over the last few years and no longer is like a safety playing linebacker. He’s a great all-around playmakers who’s all over the field against both the run and the pass, and while he’s not always being sent into the backfield, he can get there with 4.5 sacks and 9.5 tackles for loss last year, to go along with a team-leading 126 stops. The star of the Trojan defense, he’s always around the ball and always coming up with the open field stop.
