In a year with a number of talented starting seniors, it’s only fitting that the team MVP be shared by two guys playing opposite ends of the game. Mackey award winning tight end Fred David and consensus first team all American defensive tackle Sedrick Ellis earned the honors of co-MVP at the annual USC Football team award banquet on Wednesday night.
“(Ellis) had 56 tackles in 2007, including 12.5 for losses (with 8.5 sacks), and in his career has posted 28.5 tackles for a loss and 17.5 sacks. Davis has 55 receptions for 794 yards and 7 touchdowns in 2007, all team highs and season records for USC tight ends. He also owns the USC tight ends career records for receptions (110), receiving yards (1,321) and TD catches (12).”

With the loss of Jarrett and Smith to the NFL, many expected Patrick Turner to make the leap to become the go to receiver. And although Turner came in second with a sizable 569 yards, it was Fred Davis that took control early in the season becoming John David Booty’s number one target.
