Georgia State held its football banquet Thursday and Donald Russell, Albert Wilson and Terrance Woodard were named the team’s most valuable players.
Russell, a senior, rushed for 747 yards before suffering a season-ending knee injury against Villanova.
Wilson, a junior, led the team in receiving with 947 yards, punt returns with 94 yards, and kick returns with 751 yards.
Woodard, a junior, was third on the team with 59 tackles despite playing most of the season with an injured ankle.
Russell, safety Kail Singleton and long-snapper Scott McQueen were named permanent team captains. Linebackers Akeen Felder and Mark Hogan were given scholar-athlete awards.
Jan-Mai Davidson and Nermin Delic were named the top scout players.
Running back Rosevelt Watson received the Magnanimitas Award. Magnanimitas is a Latin word meaning “greatness of spirit.”
