ECU's Carden tabbed NC Player of the Year by CBC sports staff

Posted December 2, 2013

ECU quarterback Shane Carden (5) drops back to pass during play at Kenan Stadium between the University of North Carolina Tar Heels and the East Carolina Pirates on Septempber 28, 2013 in Chapel Hill, NC.

Congratulations to East Carolina quarterback Shane Carden for being named the first ever Capitol Broadcasting North Carolina Player of the Year!

All season long, the collaboration of sports voices from WRAL-TV, WRALSportsFan.com, 99.9 the Fan ESPN Radio and 620 The Buzz, as well as a host of contributors, have been in conversation as to who is the best Division-I player in the state of North Carolina. The overwhelming winner this year was Carden, who earned 11 of the possible 16 first-place votes from our panel and a remarkable 51 percent of the fan vote. ECU vs. UAB Our Lens on Shane Carden

Carden ranks sixth in the NCAA in passing yards with 3,866 and eighth in the nation in passing touchdowns with 32. The junior from Houston, Texas, is also third in the FBS in points responsible for with 254 as he helped the Pirates to a 9-3 regular-season record.

A two-year starter in Greenville, Carden was also effective when it mattered most for ECU this season as he threw 16 of his TD passes in the month of November and boasted a 77.3 percent completion rate in the fourth quarter.

In all, Carden earned 75 points out of a possible 85 in the scaled vote. Duke wide receiver Jamison Crowder was second in the vote with 65 points and was the only other finalist to garner a first-place vote as he got five nods.

Duke quarterback Brandon Connette finished third in the voting with 41 points, narrowly edging North Carolina tight end Eric Ebron. ECU wide receiver Justin Hardy finished fifth in the overall vote despite being the second most popular fan selection after nearly 20,000 online votes.

Capitol Broadcasting will also honor players of the year in men’s and women’s basketball at the conclusions of their seasons.
