PressBox’s third annual Best Of is here, featuring more than 60 honorees, including best win, best save, best dynasty, best atmosphere and much more.

Best College Athletes: Tom Flacco

In November, quarterback Tom Flacco earned second-team All-CAA honors and became the first Towson football player ever to be named a finalist in two different seasons for the Walter Payton Award, the FCS equivalent of the Heisman Trophy.

He was second in the conference with 262.9 yards of total offense per game, leading the Tigers to back-to-back winning seasons.

Perhaps you’d label him as one of the “elite” players in Towson football history.
