Reshard Langford recognized as Vanderbilt's 'heart and soul'

The Commodores honored 14 players yesterday at the annual football awards banquet. Safety Reshard Langford received the Vanderbilt Hustle Award and got a standing O from the crowd. Coach Jimmy Kiser called him "the heart and soul of this team."

Isn't it refreshing when somebody who's actually talented and who actually plays in games wins the hustle award and not some kid like Rudy? Langford has a good chance to get drafted and/or make an NFL roster.

You can read all about it here on the official Dore site.

• David Leinweber, Dr. Henry Tyler Academic Achievement Award

• Brett Upson, Special Teams Player of the Year

• Jared Hawkins, Most Valuable Offensive Back

• Brandon Barden, Most Valuable Receiver/Tight End
