Oklahoma’s Murray is AP Player of the Year
Kyler Murray is The Associated Press Player of the Year, the second straight Oklahoma quarterback and the fifth overall to win the award since it was established in 1998.
Murray beat Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa on 56 ballots submitted by AP college football poll voters and announced Thursday. Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins Jr. was third. “It’s humbling and an honor to be named AP Player of the Year, to be mentioned in the same realm as a lot of great players, a lot of hall of famers,” Murray said. “It’s a special deal for me and hopefully I can continue to make my family and teammates proud.”
