Ryan, picked as the preseason player of the year pick, also was an overwhelming choice for offensive player of the year. He received 50 of 71 first-place votes, well ahead of Virginia defensive lineman Chris Long (18). Clemson quarterback Cullen Harper, Maryland linebacker Erin Henderson and Georgia Tech running back Tashard Choice each had one first-place vote.
If John Clark hadn’t abruptly resigned, he could have voted for Chris Rix.
