2010-2011 Cavalier of the Year: Danny Hultzen
Which lasted a week. Perhaps propelled by a performance in which he struck out eight of ten hitters he faced in between barfing his gall bladder out, Danny Hultzen leaped ahead of Steele Stanwick to claim the title as 2011 Cavalier of the Year. Hultzen is a repeat winner, having earned the inaugural award in 2009. Goalkeeper Diego Restrepo was sandwiched in between in 2010.
Myself, I didn't even vote, and I still don't know who I'd have voted for between Hultzen and Stanwick. Either makes a most deserving winner. On the one hand, I thought Stanwick had the better year; on the other hand, the like of Hultzen may not be seen again around here for many, many years. The people have spoken, and it is Danny Hultzen, and by a landslide too. Congratulations all around, and thanks to all the voters.
These are the final results:
Danny Hultzen: 79
Steele Stanwick: 35
Mu Farrakhan: 16
Robby Andrews, Keith Payne: 6
Matt McLean: 3
Brian Ownby, Michael Shabaz: 2
Paige Selenski: 1
Liz Downs, Sinead Farrelly, and Lauren Perdue: 0
Now, run along and have an awesome 4th of July. And don't blow your fingers off. We'll be back tomorrow to add more orange lines to the recruiting board.
