Tonight’s poll — Who was UW’s Offensive Player of the Year?

For tonight’s poll, I figured I’d let you tell me who you think was Washington’s Offensive Player of the Year?

I narrowed the list to three candidates (while also including an “other” category if you want to make a case for someone else). Here are the finalists and a few comments stating their case:

— Running back Bishop Sankey: Sankey, a sophomore, was maybe the biggest revelation on the team this season, forced into essentially solo duty as the team’s starting tailback after an injury to Jesse Callier in the first half of the first game of the season. Sankey responded with 1,234 yards rushing, eighth on the school’s single-season list (and bowl games count so he’s got a chance to keep moving up) while also rushing for 15 touchdowns, tied for second-most in school history.

— Tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins: Seferian-Jenkins, also a sophomore, has already set numerous school records for receiving by a tight end, including 63 receptions this season and 104 career receptions for 1,327 career yards. He ended the regular season as the nation’s leader in receptions per game by a tight end (5.25).

— Receiver Kasen Williams: Williams, yet another sophomore — that touted in-state haul of 2011 turning out to be about as good as advertised — led UW with 71 receptions for 783 yards. The receptions are the fifth-most in school history. Had one of UW’s plays of the season with his 35-yard catch-and-run for a touchdown in the final minutes to beat Stanford, 17-13.
