The Texas A&M football team doesn’t have a Heisman contender, and for this season — that’s okay. Heck, in any season that would be okay. Not every year’s team can be spoiled with a Johnny Manziel-type of year.

Still, this doesn’t mean that the Texas A&M football team hasn’t benefitted from elite individual performances. They’re still in the running for a handful of individual college football awards.

Today, I’m going to go over each Texas A&M football player who should still be considered a candidate to win a yearly award, starting with an obvious candidate.

Texas A&M Football Award Contender: OL Kenyon Green, Outland Trophy

Last year, the Texas A&M football team’s offensive line was a contender for the Joe Moore Award, given to the nation’s best offensive line. The Aggies’ O-Line were finalists for the award, while Kenyon Green himself was a semifinalist for the Outland Trophy, an award given to the best interior lineman in college football.

This year, he could take the next step and become the Outland Trophy winner.

The Aggie offensive lineman hasn’t just been Texas A&M’s best offensive player — he’s been arguably the most versatile offensive lineman in the country, playing significant time at every position on the line other than center.

He’s not just sliding around for no reason, either — he’s excelling at each spot. This past week, Green earned co-Offensive Player of the Week honors based on his performance against South Carolina.

We can expect continued success out of Green, as the Aggies aren’t done yet. With this success, the Texas A&M football team might see more success out of the next player on this list.
