One tradition that we have established at Canespace is that each year bloggers are asked to select their personal choices for what we like to call "Legends of the Fall".
This tradition actually started when CanesGirlNC (seen here competing in equestrian events), who is without a doubt a legend herself here on Canespace, started a series of player features with the same title. Last year she wrote features about Kenny Dorsey and Jeremy Shockey among others.
True "Legends" are those players who the fans feel will be the most outstanding and/or dominant players for the Canes on offense and defense each year.
Last year those players were Sean Spence and Aldarius Johnson.
There are your usual suspects at the "star" positions like QB, RB and WR and then there are those unexpected surpises like kicker, punter and lead body slammer Matt Bosher who just happened to be the Canes 2008 MVP (seen here with OcalaCane).
Other bloggers are more traditional or conservative in their picks and select juniors or seniors who are projected to finally have that incredible breakout season. These are picks that could really be any defensive or offensive player who may be primed to explode on the scene after a solid previous season or a spectacular Summer with Swasey.
Offensive and defensive linemen may not be popular or sexy picks but they are just as eligible as any other position player. And don't forget special teams standouts too who can change a game with that one big play that shifts the entire momentum of a game.
Some bold predictions even result in selections of completely unexpected dark horse candidates for this honor (Ryan Hill and Sam Shields seen here). If these picks actually play out, they look like absolute geniuses. This is the most risky, but potentially most rewarding, approach of all.
It's your choice. One offensive and one defensive player, U choose, U win!
