2012 Pac-12 awards announced
Hard to argue with this award for Marqise...
Marqise Lee's historic season has led to some individual hardware as the sophomore receiver was named the Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Year today. Lee rewrote the conference record books with more catches (112) and receiving yards (1,680) in a single season than any player in Pac-12 history.
He is the 11th Trojan to win the conference's Offensive Player of the Year Award, and the first since Reggie Bush in 2005. Lee was the only unanimous selection on the All-Pac-12 First Team.
Khaled Holmes was the only other USC offensive player named to the list.
On the defense...
DT Leonard Williams was named the Pac-12 Defensive Freshman of the Year. A Trojan has earned league freshman MVP honors in all three of Lane Kiffin's years in charge.
Even when USC under performs the team puts out some solid players.
