Marcus Mariota wins CFPA Quarterback Trophy
EUGENE, Ore. -- University of Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota has been selected as recipient of the 2013 CFPA Quarterback Trophy, College Football Performance Awards announced recently.
Mariota finished the 2013 season with 3,665 passing yards and 31 passing touchdowns, completing 245-of-386 attempts. He added 715 rushing yards and nine rushing touchdowns on 96 attempts.
The junior-to-be from Honolulu led the Ducks to an 11-2 overall record and No. 9 national ranking following his Offensive MVP performance in UO's 30-7 win over Texas in the Valero Alamo Bowl.
Previously, Mariota was recognized as Oregon's offensive MVP for the second straight season. Mariota was also a two-time first-team Pac-12 Conference selection.
Mariota becomes the fourth Oregon player in five seasons to win a CFPA crystal trophy, joining LaMichael James (freshman award winner) in 2009, Cliff Harris (punt returner) in 2010, and De'Anthony Thomas (kickoff returner) in 2011.
