CSFL Postseason Honors
Army West Point defensive lineman Philip Choi and Penn quarterback Mike McCurdy were named co-Most Valuable Players for the 2015 Collegiate Sprint Football League when the annual All-Conference honors were announced Dec. 1.
The All-CSFL teams, linked above and listed below, are voted on by the league's head coaches. This year's coaches voted Choi and McCurdy to a tie for the top honor in the league after both had outstanding seasons on opposite sides of the ball.
Choi led the league's best defense with 11.5 sacks and 15.0 tackles for loss. He finished with 37 total tackles, one fumble recovery and one blocked kick to help Army West Point to an undefeated season in which the defense allowed only 36 points in seven games.
McCurdy finished the year with the most passing and total offensive yards in the league. He completed a league-high 54 percent of his passes for 1,513 yards with 13 touchdowns. The next highest passing total in the league was 1,146. McCurdy also rushed for 107 yards and seven touchdowns and finished the year averaging 231.4 yards of total offense per game. He helped Penn to an average of 33.1 points per game.
Seven schools had at least one player named to first team honors, while all nine schools are represented on the All-CSFL team. Because Chestnut Hill was playing in its inaugural year, all players selected were named to Honorable Mention honors.
