Now that we've had some time to recover from Valdosta State's thrilling 49-47 Division II championship win over Ferris State this past weekend, we are going to continue with our end-of-season honors. This week we want to know who you think was the best D2 freshman of the year for 2018.
The poll is open until this Friday at 1 p.m. Eastern/10 a.m. Pacific Time, so make your selection today and feel free to share with friends on social media so they can place their vote as well. Also, don't forget to see the winners for the D2 offensive player of the year, defensive player of the year, and head coach of the year. You can also vote through Friday for the D2 special teams player of the year.
