2018 Award Recipients

The 2018 E. Jack Spaulding Award for Most Outstanding Defensive Player was awarded to the West squad’s Natrell Jamerson, safety from Wisconsin. In the first quarter, Jamerson alertly scooped up a loose ball after a sack (that others appeared to believe was an incomplete pass) and took it 68 yards for the game’s initial score.

 


The 2018 William H. Coffman Award for Most Outstanding Offensive Player went to Northern Iowa receiver Daurice Fountain, who led the game with 101 all-purpose yards for the East. Fountain finished the game with three catches for 61 yards and two punt returns for 40 yards. His 30-yard return in the third quarter led to the East squad’s only touchdown — and only lead — of the game. Fountain had both the longest return and reception of the game.
