Coppell defensive end Solomon Thomas is one of 16 players nominated for the 2014 U.S. Army Player of the Year Award. The six finalists for the award will be announced on November 26.
The U.S. Army Player of the Year will be crowned during the U.S. Army All-American Bowl Awards Show on January 3, 2014, in San Antonio, where the winner will be presented with the Ken Hall Trophy, modeled after high school football legend Ken Hall.
The selection process began this fall as players were evaluated by coaches from around the country and the U.S. Army All-American Bowl Selection Committee.
The only other Texan to be nominated is KD Cannon, a receiver from Mount Pleasant.
