Can Royce Freeman win Pac-12 Offensive POY Award?
While Oregon may have the best collection of wide receivers and running backs in the country, there is one player that stands above the rest: RB Royce Freeman.
The sophomore sensation burst onto the scene in 2014 as a freshman. In his first campaign as a Duck, Freeman ran for 1,365 yards and scored 18 touchdowns on the ground. For his play, Freeman was named the Pac-12's offensive freshman of the year.
Now, in his second season, Freeman will be tasked with being the focal point of Oregon's deadly offense. Can he follow up his freshman of the year award with the Pac-12's offensive player of the year award?
Eric Cech of 247 Sports recently revealed why he believes Freeman can win the award this season:
