Football Has Banquet for 2017 Season

       

Feb. 10, 2018

CONWAY - The Coastal Carolina football program officially closed the 2017 football season at a team banquet in the Field House. Master of Ceremony and voice of the Chanticleers Joe Cashion recapped the season and its highlights while CCU coaches handed out the player-voted, end-of-season awards.

Each year, the highlights of the banquet are two sets of special honors. First, Chief of Staff George Glenn announced senior running back Osharmar Abercrombie as the BAM Player of the Year. Abercrombie did make the All-Sun Belt team and he finished his career among the CCU all-time top five in rushing. However, the BAM Award has less to do with statistics; rather it has everything to do with the character and leadership of the person and how he stands on his own two feet and takes responsibility for his own actions. Second, head coach Joe Moglia ended the ceremony by announcing Abercrombie, senior linebacker Shane Johnson and junior corner back Anthony Chesley as the captains for the 2017 season.

Also recognized were the seven Chanticleers that earned All-Sun Belt honors including Johnson (second team), Abercrombie (third team), Malcolm Williams (third team), Trey Carter (honorable mention), Evan Rabon (honorable mention), Silas Kelly (honorable mention) and Chris Jones (honorable mention).

The following is the list of team-voted, end-of-season awards:
