    Also, a case could be made for AAG as the most inspirational given his role in the Higgs incident. He may have saves Brock's life. That is pretty inspirational to me.
    It was definitely an inspirational moment, although I think most of us are saying Kennedy because not only did he take the initiative to run 3 months of practices, but with Coach saying that the captains were the real motivators in the locker room. I agree that AAG's quick thinking and stepping up this year (compared to last) definitely shows leadership, and he should get at least an A for next year.

    Was wondering, who got Most Improved last year? Was that Kerins?

      Not to take away from anything that Kennedy did this season, but 1) they're called "Captains' Practices" for a reason and 2) of course the captains are going to be the motivators in the locker room - that's part of their role as captains.

      And yes, Kerins won Most Improved last year, in addition to Most Inspirational.

          Point taken.

          Although one person I think that gave the team a little extra "oomph" (or at least from what I could tell from watching the games) that I think only I mentioned (and for Most Improved) is Johnny Rogic. Potentially a longshot choice?

            No problem, Ralph. It took me a few minutes to find it, too!

              FDude, I believe to qualify for the most improved award you would have had to improve from the season before so that would disqualify any freshman and Bailen.

                And I believe you to have a bigger ego than a combination of Bear Red and Hokeydope.

                But to get back to what you really were saying, I don't think improving from the season before is necessarily the case. Kennedy won Most Improved his sophomore year, but it wasn't because of what happened his freshman year, one reason was because of his love handles during the offseason (I'm quoting cmmarkham on this one; it's too bad she doesn't grace us with her presence on here very much anymore, I kind of miss her), but he also was getting steadily better the whole year.

                    When people correct me on the board I am thankful that someone steers me out of my ignorance and yes I do have a big ego. Look at all the ink I have gotten in the local press

                      By my definition Most Improved implies from the previous season, but that hasn't been how it has worked. York shared the award with JFK in 08-09 as a frosh. Halpern won it in 07-08. Erik Burgdoerfer shared it in 06-07. http://www.rpiathletics.com/sports/2...8.aspx?id=2862

                        Really miss the occassional cmmarkham post also. She added quite a bit to our discussions.

                          Me too, although she still posts on RPI-Sports.

                            The previous season is definitely a good possible benchmark, but if a player starts the season as not so good and works their way through the season to one of the higher caliber players, I don't see why that shouldn't be seen as an improvement, and it doesn't seem just to them that they would have to be disqualified from the award just because they weren't around the previous year. Now if it's a case where they lost a bit in the offseason and regained it (like I would say would be the case with Helfrich), I don't think it's a good indication.
