It was a close call, but in the end LSU flanker and U-20 All-American Brennan Falcon beat out Baylor No. 8 Pete Hamm for the honor. Falcon, the younger brother of former LSU All-America Cameron Flacon, scored 10 Red River tries for Canterbury’s 19th-ranked Tigers, including hat trick performances twice against Texas this season.
