Pac-12 Midseason Awards: Throughout the bye week we're rolling out indivudal awards and positional grades for ASU players through the midpoint of the 2015 season. But the conference as a whole has been incredibly interesting as well, and so here are HoS's midseason awards for the entire Pac-12, including Offensive/Defensive Players of the Year as well as the conference's top breakout player and top freshman.
ASU Midseason Award for Breakout Player of the Mid-Year: Who would you say is ASU's top breakout player so far this season. There are a number of candidates for the distinction as multiple players who didn't play large roles on the 2014 squad have made their presence felt this season, but only one could earn the nod.
ASU Football Offensive MVP at the Midseason Break: We hand out our nod for the player who's carried the offense so far this season, as well as players that are working their way towards that level and one player whose performance needs to improve in the second half.
ASU Defensive front-seven standing out for Sun Devils: Their record may be 4-3, but ASU's struggles this season have had nothing to do with the quality of their defensive front-seven. Defensive coordinator Keith Patterson spoke with us on the line's development throughout the course of the season and the challenges they'll face with a speed offense coming into town next week in Oregon.
Robert Levin suffered ankle injury against UCONN: It's been a bit of a bumpy start for ASU in its first season of Division I hockey, and the injury that star goalie Robert Levin suffered against UConn can't help. He didn't dress for the finale of the road trip and received an MRI Wednesday.
