Who do you think deserves to “hold” the title of 2017 @MortellAward winner? #HOTY— MORTELL HOTY (@MortellAward) November 29, 2017
Winner announced December 7th!
His kicker, Austin Seibert, has had a fantastic season as a placekicker. Anyone who has seen Ace Ventura: Pet Detective knows that it all starts with the hold, so McGinnis has played a huge role in Oklahoma’s success this season. Seibert hit all 75 of his PAT attempts this season and made 15 of 18 field goal attempts.
Connor’s kept the laces out for Austin all season!
Austin Seibert did a great job of bringing awareness to this award, as he created and starred in a video promoting McGinnis. The following video was posted last Friday:
There's more to Connor than his 4.0 GPA. Vote for Connor! @MortellAward @cbfowler pic.twitter.com/Py1OEonIDp— BigSeib43 (@austinseibert1) December 1, 2017
