USC football team awards: Marqise Lee named team MVP

Robert Laberge

Lee's spectacular playmaking in a disappointing season earned him the team's top honors.

Marqise Lee was named MVP of the USC Trojans, the school announced. The Trojans had a disappointing season overall, going 7-5 and 5-4 in Pac-12 play. Lee had a spectacular year in spite of that, and the sophomore was recognized by the team for his contributions.

Lee led the nation in receptions with 112, was second in receiving yards per game with 140 and was third in the nation in all-purpose yardage with 215.7 yards per game. He also excelled returning kicks for the Trojans, averaging nearly 30 yards-per-return and collecting over 800 yards in total.

Lee's play-making ability gave the Trojans a down field threat that they leaned on heavily at times, including an almost superhuman 16-catch, 345-yard performance that could not prevent a loss against the Arizona Wildcats.

In addition to the MVP Award, Lee was also named one of the Perimiter Players of the Year and received the John McKay award, given to the most competitive underclassman.
