Former STAB Stand Out Wins Lanier Award

The Touchdown Club of Virginia gave out it’s annual awards last night, and the best player in the state in Division II, Division III and NAIA ( Lanier Award) is Randolph-Macon running back Will McGhee.  McGhee was a running back who played his high school football in Charlottesville for John Blake and St. Anne’s Belfield.  McGhee got slightly more votes than Hampden-Sydney receiver Holton Walker, winning by just two points, which is one of the closest votes in the history of the award.  McGhee also won the J. Stokeley Fulton offensive player of the year in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference. He led  the league in rushing with 1,676 yards, the second-highest in ODAC history.  (factual information for the story provided by the Virginian Pilot)
