We started today's SOFA celebration by unveiling the Syracuse offensive line as the co-winners of our Offensive Player of the Year award, and now we name the top Orangeman on defense...
Let's take a look on how some of you guys votes:
StealthTurkey went with Eskridge on the strength of his takeaways:
Ultimately, however, this one was all about Jay Bromley. All seven of our esteemed writers chose Jay in the voting.
Jared focused on Jay's impact on the rest of the defense:
Jay Bromley -- By far the best Syracuse defender. He anchored the DL, which freed up Robert Welsh for a few sacks and took pressure off of some of the younger DTs that always played well during the season. He is a fantastic story overall and should make a steady pro.
Invisible Swordsman discussed Jay's awesome story:
Jay Bromley. Quite simply, he was the meanest, prettiest, baddest mofo low down around this town. From a zero-star, zero-offer prospect to NFL-ready lineman, Jay is everything we root for in our athletes.
Congrats, Jay! Courtesy of Justis Mosqueda, let's watch some "Jay Bromley is good at sacking quarterbacks" GIFs:
More categories and winners are on the way tomorrow. Thanks for voting, everyone!
