Miami Hurricanes quarterback Malik Rosier remains a solid third in what is looking like a three-man race for the Herald's 2017 State Offensive Player of the Year award — the "state Heisman." Canes running back Mark Walton is in fifth place but will tumble week by week now that he is done for the season with an ankle injury.
Season leader McKenzie Milton of UCF continues out front, followed South Florida’s Quinton Flowers (from Miami Jackson High).
Our weekly rankings measure the most productive quarterbacks, running backs and receivers from the state's seven FBS teams: Miami, Florida, Florida State, FIU, FAU, UCF and South Florida. The rankings are cumulative but based weekly on average points per game: Total points divided by number of games a player's team has played. This keeps the comparison level even because not all teams have played same number of games. Our simple formula awards a half-point for every passing yard and one point for every rushing or receiving yard, with six points for every TD scored or thrown.
