Hogan, Neild & Sanders Named West Virginia's Team MVPs

West Virginia University has announced the award winners for the 2010 football season.  Senior Jock Sanders was named the team's offensive MVP, while Chris Neild and Brandon Hogan were named co-MVPs of the defense.

The three seniors all made major contributions to the West Virginia football program during their time in Morgantown.  Sanders leaves West Virginia with the career record for most receptions with 201.  Sanders also is tied for the school record of most consecutive games with a reception, a streak that currently sits at 40 games.

Chris Neild and Brandon Hogan helped anchor a nationally touted defense this season as the Mountaineers held opponents to under twenty points per game.  Neild was a force on a defensive front that gave opponents fits all season.  A run-stuffing nose guard, Neild occupied huge chunks of space allowing his teammates to sack the quarterback with great success.

Hogan, a shifty defensive back, caps a strong senior season that saw him haul in three interceptions, force a fumble and recover a fumble.  Unfortunately, Hogan's career at West Virginia is over and he will not play in the Champs Sports Bowl on Dec. 28 due to injury.
