AP top player Murray adds O’Brien; Tua wins Camp

AP top player Murray adds O’Brien; Tua wins Camp

Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa and Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray split top honors on a college football awards night that only has momentum building towards Saturday night's Heisman Trophy announcement.

9 overall pick by the Oakland A's in last summer's Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft, is the second Sooner in two years to win the O'Brien Award, joining Baker Mayfield.

On Thursday night, the nation's best college football players gathered for an awards show of epic proportions.

After taking part in a little more than 30 minutes worth of interviews, Murray moved down to the floor of the stock exchange, eventually making his way with Tagovailoa and Haskins to the balcony where they rang the closing bell. Tagovailoa won the Maxwell over fellow finalists Murray and Grier.

But one man in California shocked his doctors when he coughed up an unusual-looking blood clot: It was in the shape of his lung. Fibrinogen is a type of protein in the blood that works to glue platelets together.

While Tagovailoa was voted the best player, he didn't win best quarterback.

Murray and Tua will also meet at the end of the month in the College Football Playoff.

Friday, Murray was trying to enjoy his first trip to New York City. The past five winners of the Walter Camp Award won the Heisman, while the past four Maxwell winners did the same.

- Kentucky linebacker Josh Allen won the Chuck Bednarik award as the nation's top defensive player. Through 13 games, the sophomore has completed 67.7 percent of his passes for 3,353 yards and a school-record 37 touchdowns. He received a $4.6 million signing bonus from the A's with the expectation that this would be his last season on the gridiron. Murray has thrown for 4,053 yards and 40 touchdowns while rushing for over 800 yards and 11 touchdowns. His 4,527 yards of total offense are more than 68 of the country's other 129 teams, including six squads that are ranked in the AP Top 25 Poll. Kyler Murray transferred to Oklahoma after his freshman season, sat out a season per transfer rules and then backed up Mayfield.
