Tri-State Player Award
Tri-State Player of the Year
Speak softly and carry a big stick. It’s the way Rutgers WR Mohamed Sanu, the Maxwell Football Club’s 11th Tri-State Player of the Year, has conducted himself from the moment he arrived in Piscataway early in 2009.
Sanu isn’t one to boast, draw too much attention to himself or participate in a lot of self-indulgent showmanship. It’s just not his style. His voice doesn’t resonate. His game, though, can injure an eardrum. In three seasons as a Scarlet Knight, he emerged as more than just one of the Big East’s most incendiary offensive weapons. He became, along with predecessors, such as RB Ray Rice, FB Brian Leonard, WR Kenny Britt, OT Anthony Davis and DT Eric Foster, the embodiment of the rise to respectability of Rutgers football. The caliber of athlete who would have been a Garden State import for Boston College or Iowa or some other more recognizable program in the past, Sanu was yet another symbol of the strides that were made over the past decade on the banks of the Old Raritan.
