Former Sooner DeMarco Murray Named PFWA’s NFL Offensive Player Of The Year

Former Oklahoma running back DeMarco Murray has been named the NFL Offensive Player of the Year by the Pro Football Writers’ Association.

It’s the next in what promises to be a long line of awards for Murray, who finished the 2014 season as the NFL’s leading rusher. In December he was named to the Pro Bowl for the second-consecutive season, and he was also designated first-team All-Pro.

Murray set career marks and Cowboys franchise records this past season, as he carried the ball 392 times for 1,845 yards and 13 touchdowns. Factoring in the Cowboys’ postseason run, Murray ran for 2,043 yards and 15 touchdowns in 18 games.

It wasn’t just his running ability, though. Murray was the Cowboys’ third-leading receiver with 57 receptions for another 416 yards, giving him 2,459 all-purpose yards on the season. (Dallas Cowboys)
