Victor Anderson named Big East Rookie of the Year

Vic Anderson became the first Louisville player to be named Big East Rookie of the Year when he was honored with the distinction Wednesday morning.

The St. Xavier High School product led the Cardinals with 1,047 yards rushing (the fifth-highest total in the conference) and eight touchdowns. He became the program's 13th 1,000-yard rusher, and its first since Michael Bush in 2005.

Senior captain and center Eric Wood was one of three repeat selections to the Big East's first team offense, Pitt's LeSean McCoy and West Virginia's Pat White being the others. He was joined on the first team offensive line by fellow senior George Bussey.

Anderson, wide receiver Doug Beaumont, returner Trent Guy and linebacker Jon Dempsey were all second team selections.

Pitt middle linebacker Scott McKillop was named Defensive Player of the Year, and in a bit of an upset, UConn running back Donald Brown bested McCoy for Offensive Player of the Year honors. Cincinnati's Brian Kelly became the first person to be named Big East Coach of the Year in back-to-back seasons since Miami's Larry Coker did it in 2001 and 2002.

Big congrats to Vic, our lone beacon of sanguinity for the next nine months.
