    Congrats to all the winners.

    I assume the ceremony is over. One less reason for AD to delay his decision. ;)

    Hopefully Paladin will do his writeup soon.

    The only question mark in my mind is Matt Fink. I suppose he did fight on by returning from the portal. However, if there had been any serious interest at all from another team, I think he would have bolted.

    That has always been a very special award. Not sure who else was in the running but it's an interesting choice.

    Congratulations to all the award winners.

    Classic Clay...awarding a guy in Fink who quit on his team then reversed
    course when no one else wanted him. Yet another example of Helton’s lack of leadership and belief in accountability. You get what you accept. Helton clearly has no standard when it comes to anything and the results reflect that.

    Now that I think about it, when did the Jack Oakie Award go from "the longest/most electrifying run" to the best "Fight On Spirit"? I don't even see a recipient from 2017 or 2018. The last recipient is Ronald Jones in 2016. I'm not sure a QB ever won that award.

    RoJo freshman highlights (2015)..




    edit: Erik has provided historical insight. The award has typically gone to either best run or best hit. No winner the last 2 years. And now out of the blue, Fink has the most "fight on" spirit? IMO, Clay is further pussifying USC football. Hit and run....it's not just for baseball.
