2011 M Awards: Favorite Football Player

First place here claimed more than 45% of the vote and second place only 14%. First place played for the University of Memphis and second place played against them while at East Carolina. First place just signed a contract worth as much as $43 million and second place stands to make $800,000 this year. First place has won this award every year since its inception and second place has never come close. I can’t imagine a scenario where this year’s second place winner could take this award next year. Pre-congratulations for winning this award next year, DeAngelo!

DeAngelo Williams, Carolina PanthersFirst Place: 45.70%
Chris Johnson, Tennessee TitansSecond Place: 13.75%
Michael Oher, Baltimore Ravens, Third Place: 12.37%
Best Write-in Vote: Payton (Walter, not Manning)
