        Got to meet Bradlee Anae and his family today here in Seattle at the downtown Washington Athletic Club during his award presentation. This is the fourth time a Ute has won it.

        The award has been in existence for 40 years and no player from Washington State, Arizona or Colorado has even won it once.

         

        For those that are not aware this is a very unique award that is given to one defensive player and one offensive player each year in the PAC 12. What makes it unique is the fact that the players from each team vote as to who they feel was the toughest opponent on the other side of the ball.

        Fortunately I have been able to attend all four award ceremonies dating back to 2011 because they open it and the luncheon to anyone that wants to attend.

        Following the ceremony I was talking to one of the organizers and he had mentioned that there were other Utah players receiving numerous votes.  He also said that it is unheard of to have multiple players from one team get votes the same year.
