Patriot surprise: Shafnisky, not Edmonds named Player of the Year

(STATS) - Rushing for more yards than anyone in the FCS - and by a wide margin - could put Chase Edmonds in the running for some national player of the year awards. Yet, that wasn't good enough to get him top honors in the pint-sized Patriot League.

Instead, it was Lehigh quarterback Nick Shafnisky who was named the Patriot's Player of the Year even though he missed 2 1/2 games and didn't lead the league in passing yards or touchdown passes. Apparently voters felt that the senior dual threat leading Lehigh to a perfect conference record, a 9-2 season overall and a playoff berth outweighed Edmonds' seemingly superior statistics.

Edmonds, of course, did make the All-Patriot first-team offense after rushing for an FCS-best 1,799 yards, 281 more than second-place Tarik Cohen of North Carolina A&T. A junior who already owns the conference's all-time record with 62 rushing TDs, Edmonds ran for 19 scores this season to finish second in the Subdivision.
