Temple junior tailback Bernard Pierce, who will enter the NFL draft, was named the Eastern College Athletic Conference's offensive player of the year.
The 6-foot, 218-pounder was joined on the ECAC team by Owls senior offensive tackle Pat Boyle and senior defensive end Adrian Robinson.
Pierce rushed for 1,481 yards despite missing one game with a concussion, playing two others with a hamstring injury, and being taken out in the third quarter of a number of game because Temple had huge leads. He set a single-season school record with 27 touchdowns.
Robinson finished with 52 tackles, a team-best 6.5 sacks, an interception and a blocked kick. Meanwhile, Boyle started all 13 games on the offensive line.
