USFNation Offensive & Defensive Spring MVP's

The staff at was out at every practice this spring and there were two players we thought deserved to be named the Most Valuable Player's during this year's spring drills. Read on to find out who we named as our MVP's

Offensive MVP- Marc Dile

As Dile goes into his third season with USF, the 6-foot-4 275 pound tackle knows the importance of spring practice, and that's why he's been working so hard on and off the field.

"This spring I really focused on my run game." Adding, "I felt I was lacking that in order to become the player I need to be for this team."

After having a great spring Dile says he'll now turn his concentration to the weight room. Throughout the spring Dile was the one player on the Oline that was consistent throughout. No major injuries, played hard everyday and rarely made a mistake.

Defensive MVP- Stephen Nicholas

If there is one person on this year's team that has nothing to prove during spring drills it's Nicholas. However after nearly going to the NFL this offseason, Nicholas has come right back with even more fire than last year. Every day at practice he pumps the team up with his actions on and off the field.

"Everyday I want to get 2% better than the day before, that's my goal." Nicholas credits this theory to Coach Burnham, "He instilled that in me. Every meeting we have he tells me I need to be 2% better every single day."

Nicholas did have one minor injury that held him out of the spring game, but he says if it was a regular game there would be no doubt he would have played. "I have a little limp now, but I'll be ready when workouts start back up."
