Pitt’s Brian O’Neill wins 2016 Piesman Trophy

Honoring the greatest big-guy plays from this season of college football.

It’s finally time to hand out this year’s second annual Piesman Trophy, the only award in college football that honors offensive and defensive lineman who run, pass, or catch the ball.

You can watch part of the ceremony here, and then I assume you’ll fight in the comments here about whether or not the voters made the right choice.

It's Piesman Trophy time! Three finalists for the best BIG-DUDE trophy of the year, as voted on by a panel of experts and you

Our three finalists this year were Vincent Taylor from Oklahoma State, Kolton Koch from Monmouth College, and Brian O’Neill from Pitt, and these are the plays that got them to New York.

They were selected from a field of dozens of nominees and voted on by a panel that includes actual linemen, college football media, and culinary experts.

The 2015 trophy went to Southeastern Louisiana’s Ashton Henderson.
