2017 Morris Trophy winners Vita Vea and Tyrell Crosby

The Morris Trophy honors the PAC 12's best defensive and offensive lineman and is the only college football award in America that's voted on by the players.

The Morris Trophy is the only college football award in America voted on by the players themselves. It spotlights the top offensive and defensive linemen in the PAC 12 conference and was created by a woman named Traci Morris Drake, as she watched a University of Washington football game in 1980.

This year's honorees happen to come from rival schools here in the Northwest: University of Washington defensive lineman Vita Vea and University of Oregon offensive lineman Tyrell Crosby.
