CCM’s 2011 Football Award Nominations: Defensive POTY

The conclusion of the 2011 football season brings about the award nominations from the staff here at Crimson And Cream. Unlike last year where we each awarded an honor to a player or coach, this year we're leaving it up to our readers to decide who gets the honors. We introduced our nominations Sunday night on the SoonerNation podcast and now your opportunity to cast your vote comes after the jump.

Nominations For Defensive Player Of The Year

O3: Tom Wort

JTE: Frank Alexander

CCM: Aaron Colvin

We all three went in separate directions here with all three candidates having a good season. Wort finished with 66 tackles (4.5 for loss), 3.5 sacks, and 1 interception. He was fourth on the team in total tackles.

Alexander made first team all-conference after leading the Sooners with 8.5 sacks. He also recorded 51 tackles, including a team high 18 for loss, and an interception.

Switching from corner to safety in the offseason, Colvin leads the team in total tackles going into the bowl game. His 80 takedowns (4.5) for loss are one better than Travis Lewis who has led the team in tackles over the last three seasons.
