The Missouri Valley Football Conference will announce the winners of its major individual awards tomorrow, ranging from Offensive Player of the Year to Newcomer of the Year.
The league was highlighted with some great individual players this season and for the first time in since North Dakota State entered the league, players from teams that have traditionally been at the bottom of the league standings grabbing some accolades.
Traditionally, I am not allowed to vote for North Dakota State players, but for this story I'll be picking the top players regardless of school, at each position.
