2014 All-Bilo RB of the Year Finalists and Winner: D2

My finalists for the 2014 All-Bilo RB of the Year, D2 are:

Terrell Watson, Azusa Pacific
Anthony Bilal, Lake Erie
Cameron McDondle, Colorado State Pueblo

Watson led the nation on the season with 2153 yards rushing and an astounding 29 scores on the season. The senior averaged 195.7 yards rushing per game, which also led the nation.

Bilal rushed for 2091 yards a s a junior, and also scored 29 TDs, tying Watson for the national lead in rushing TDs. His 190.1 yards per game barely finished a shade behind Watson for the lead in that category as well.

McDondle won a national title at CSU Pueblo, and also managed to break the 2000 yard barrier with 2014 on the season. He averaged 134.3 yards per game as a junior, and rushed for 16 TDs on the season. As a junior, he has a shot to come back and make a run at the award again in 2015.

And the winner is...

Terrel Watson, Azusa Pacific and Anthony Bilal, Lake Erie

For the first time, I am naming co-winners of this award to both Watson and Bilal. Their numbers were so similar, and so very razor close, that I could not justifiably pick one over another this season. Both RBs had amazing seasons as individuals, and deserve to both be recognized nationally for their accomplishments in 2014.
Congratulations to Terrel and Anthony, and to the Azusa Pacific and Lake Erie programs.
