Rams Awards 2016
Adam Cowley was named overall MVP, as well as winning Ram of the Year and his customary nod as Maniac of the Year.
Curiously, though, neither of the Defensive MVP votes went in his favour, with fellow lineman Eoin Byrne scooping the players’ award and linebacker Charlie Gough honoured by the coaches.
Quarterback Taylor Umland was the players’ Offensive MVP, with receiver Andrew Cheeseman the coaches’ choice, while Phil Gatenby was named Offensive Lineman of the Year and defensive back/kick returner Tyler Broad was a deserving winner of Rookie of the Year.
As always, before the ‘proper’ awards were presented under the supervision of social secretary Lauren Stewart, there were a series of joke awards including many of the team squirming through a selection of their old Facebook photos in the “Where will I be in five years?” section – the brainchild of Cowley, right.
Congratulations to all our winners, after a season which saw strong competition across the board.
