Hyphman Update (Oct. 27)

Here is a little Hyphman Update for you (in case you don't know what the Hyphman Award is, CLICK HERE). We've had a bit of movement since our last update so let's see who is making strides as we hit the three-quarter mark of the season:
  1. Darrell Johnson-Koulianos (WR - Iowa) -- Been tearing it up lately...on the season, he has 30 receptions for 497 yards and 8 touchdowns. Pretty impressive stuff. And his stock could rise even farther if his team is able to knock off undefeated Michigan State this weekend. The front-runner thus far for sure.
  2. Alex Hoffman-Ellis (LB - Washington State) -- Wow, who would have thought we would have anything positive to say about the half-dead Cougars of Pullman, Washington. But Hoffman-Ellis, or "Ho-El" as I like to call him, has been all over the field on defense -- he has 55 tackles and 2 picks so far this season and, let's face this point he should be all about personal statistics because the rest of his team couldn't play for Goldie Hawn's team in Wildcats.
  3. Ray-Ray Armstrong (S - Miami (FL)) -- One of the stalwarts of the Hurricane defense, Ray-Ray has come to play every game this year...except for that Florida State thing. Anyway he has 2 picks and 43 tackles so far and if he gets a couple more INTs, he could make a big move up.
  4. James-Michael Johnson (LB Nevada) -- Has 45 tackles this season and is a good sleeper. Why? Because if he has a big game against Boise toward the end of the season, like has two INTs and 15 tackles, that could really sway the Hyphman voters (i.e. Van Dawgin and me).
  5. Austyn Carta-Samuels (QB - Wyoming) -- Ahhhh, what could have preseason pick to win the Hyphman has taken a wicked spiral downward. He is still completing 62% of his passes but the 5:5 TD to INT ratio is killing his stock right now. I'm still optimistic that he can put together a hot streak toward the end but...I don't know.
It's gonna be an exiting race to the finish...who will make the push. Stay tuned....
