NEC News of the Day: Conference Set to Honor Top Gridders in Postseason Awards Program Plus Top Tweets

The dust has settled on the 2011 regular season.

While UAlbany readies to represent the NEC in Saturday’s NCAA FCS First Round showdown at Stony Brook, the NEC staff is busy conducting the all-conference awards process.

Through a vote of the league’s nine head coaches, the NEC will name two 25-member all-conference teams and five major award winners – Offensive Player, Defensive Player, Offensive Rookie, Defensive Rookie, and Coach of the Year honors.

Being that there is nothing like talkin’ football around the Thanksgiving dinner table, NEC fans will have a chance to see what their relatives think about the 2011 All-NEC Football Teams.

The conference plans to announce the award winners on Wednesday, Nov. 23, just in time for Turkey Day.

Overtime! will be one of the first to break the news, so give us a visit on Thanksgiving Eve to see if your favorite NEC player is now your favorite all-NEC player.

How many all-NEC selections will Bob Ford
and his Great Danes  receive come Wednesday?
