2021 CSFL All-Conference & Major Awards

By: Doug DeBiase | Collegiate Sprint Football League | December 1, 2021

NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- A trio of standouts on Wednesday were named major award winners for the recently-completed 2021 Collegiate Sprint Football League season, as announced by Commissioner Dan Mara.

Mansfield's Cahsid Raymond was named the 2021 CSFL Offensive Player and Rookie of the Year, while Navy's Adam Weissenfels was crowned the 2021 CSFL Defensive Player of the Year, and Penn's Brendan McCaffrey was tabbed the 2021 CSFL Special Teams Player of the Year. In addition to those honorees, dozens more student-athletes earned all-conference honors from the CSFL. The nominating and voting for the 2021 all conference and major awards was conducted by the league's nine head coaches.

The CSFL expanded its major awards for the 2021 campaign, as the league introduced the Offensive Player of the Year, Defensive Player of the Year and Special Teams Player of the Year honors. The league had awarded a most valuable player award in the past, along with the newcomer award which was rebranded as the Rookie of the Year. The CSFL will once again crown an MVP for the league, as coaches will now vote amongst the three major award winners in a separate vote. The announcement of the 2021 CSFL MVP will be made next week at sprintfootball.com.

CAHSID RAYMOND (2021 CSFL Offensive Player & Rookie of the Year)

Raymond had a sensational debut season for Mansfield, as he was a dynamic runner and passer at the quarterback position. He ranked third in the league in completions (86), passing yards (1,210) and passing touchdowns (9), while rushing for over 100 yards four times; including a pair of games at 190 yards or more. Raymond also rushed for 11 touchdowns and totaled 20 overall this season. He was tied for the CSFL lead in rushing yards per game at 111.9.

ADAM WEISSENFELS (2021 CSFL Defensive Player of the Year)

Weissenfels was a ballhawk in the secondary this season, as he led the CSFL with four interceptions, including a pair in the championship game to help guide Navy to a 9-7 win over arch-rival Army. He logged 25 total tackles and forced a fumble while helping to spearhead the top defensive unit in the CSFL (1st in fewest points allowed per game - 6.7 - and 1st in fewest rush yards allowed per game - 31.1).

BRENDAN McCAFFREY (2021 CSFL Special Teams Player of the Year)

McCaffrey led the league in kickoff return yardage with 27.3 yards per return, which was six yards higher than the next highest ranking player in that category. His longest kickoff return of the season was 80 yards, and McCaffrey also returned 10 punts with a long of 30. McCaffrey was a key cog for the Penn special teams unit which helped the Quakers go 5-2 during the season.

All three major award winners also garnered spots on the All-CSFL First Team on either offense or defense. Both Weissenfels and McCaffrey made it twice, as Weissenfels earned a spot at defensive back and punt returner (highest return average in the league), and McCaffrey made it at wide receiver and kick returner.
