TONY DORSETT RUMORS & GOSSIP

James Conner: ACC Player of the Year

It was just announced that Conner has won the ACC Offensive Player of the Year Award. Conner beat Jameis Winston 16-13. Naturally, he’s also the Offensive Player of the Year as well. Conner had a historic season in 2014 which included breaking Tony Dorsett’s record for rushing touchdowns in a season. Not bad for a guy who was initially recruited as a DE.

Redskins colors used to be Burgundy, Gold, and Darrell Green

Today we look at the best CB that the Redskins have ever drafted. This is an easy choice and there’s really no debate. Darrell Green is the best corner in Redskins history, so naturally he would be the best one ever drafted. And for those wondering the great Pat Fischer wasn’t drafted by Washington.
