Hutchinson led all vote-getters with 7 first-place votes from coaches. According to criteria, coaches vote for a first- and second-place finisher and are not allowed to vote for their own players.
Hutchinson has already captured a number of individual honors, including the Rotary Lombardi Award, the B1G Defensive Player of the Year, and the B1G Defensive Lineman of the Year. Will a Heisman Trophy be added to his personal collection?
