The Sports Network announced on Wednesday that the Jerry Rice Award will be given to the top freshman player in the country in the Football Championship Sub-Division Series this coming fall.
The award is named after Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice, acknowledged as one of the greatest players in football history. Rice is joining three other football legends whose names adorn the top individual awards in the FCS: the Walter Payton Award, which goes to the most outstanding player, the Eddie Robinson Award, which goes to the FCS coach of the year, and the Buck Buchanan Award, which goes to the FCS outstanding defensive player.
