longislandelectricfootballleague2020logo.jpg.c25b44f7dbf1d09ca63a5a09b19c54c4.jpgMerry Christmas! The Long Island Electric Football League announces our year-end TOUGH GUY AWARDS for our 67-BIG MEN League!

In our last season of league write-ups, proven track players in any league set a precedence for great players. Before this evening's NFC Wild Card Game gladiator battle between the Dallas Cowboys (5-2) and the Carolina Panthers (5-2) the league has its final results in on LIEFL BEST PLAYER AWARDS!  There is always second guessing when it comes to awards, but this is how we stand. What a season it's been!  The last week of our season brings lots of recognition and we'd like to thank the loyal readers who found fun in our reports. Indianapolis Colts Running Back Joseph Addai has been the centerpiece in the league as an offensive player not just this season, but every season.

Addai has 8220 career all-purpose yards for the Colts with 61 touchdowns!  He performed better than any other player in the LIEFL this season, and the Colts beat the Raiders in the Round 1 AFC Wild Card Game. Addai was #3 in the AFC and  #7 in the LIEFL in Rushing with 43 carries for 539 yards, with 12 touchdowns, including his long run of 50 yards from scrimmage. His all-purpose performance was one of the best ever in the history of the seven game format in the LIEFL. He was the #1 all-purpose player in the entire LIEFL with 64 touches for 1767 yards with a total 15 touchdowns, including a 100-yard touchdown run. And in kick returns Addai was #5 in the AFC and #11 in the LIEFL with 18 touches for 1148 yards with one 100-yard touchdown!  All that would make his season more memorable is  LIEFL Super Bowl title!

Not far behind was the master of the metal gridiron Gerald Riggs, another great LIEFL offensive player. Riggs set the record for all-purpose yards in a seven game season back in 2019, with 78 touches for 2339 yards with 21 touchdowns! This season Riggs was #3 in LIEFL Rushing, #2 behind Addai in the LIEFL in all-purpose yards with 68 touches for 1741 yards, with 11 touchdowns, three of them for 100-yards! That is hard to top, but Addai topped Riggs this year as the Falcons battle for a Super Bowl title! 

The defensive choice of the Denver Broncos was the correct one. The Broncos outplayed some of the best teams in the league with epic defensive plays by Von Miller, Paul Smith, Karl Mecklenburg, who limited LIEFL opponents to just 72 points allowed. But the LIEFL Defensive Player of the Year has to be Detroit's Lomas Brown who dominated had 10 tackles on opponents, making big plays when the Lions came back in the season. Brown and Vikings Tackle Carl Eller are two of the best of the best defensive players for the second season in a row. Congratulations!
