Boilermakers hand out spring awards

By ESPN.com staff

Purdue wrapped up spring practice Wednesday, and today the Boilermakers announced their awards for the spring session. It's interesting that both of Purdue's top quarterbacks, Robert Marve and Caleb TerBush, made the list. Perhaps the QB competition will go on longer than we think.

Each award lists one offensive player and one defensive player.

Without further ado ...

Most Improved Award: Quarterback Caleb TerBush and linebacker Dwayne Beckford

Newcomer Award (most progress in first spring practice at Purdue): Quarterback Robert Marve and linebacker Will Lucas

Pit Bull Award (player who exemplifies and sustains tenacity and intense play): Tight end Kyle Adams and defensive end Gerald Gooden

Hammer Award (top hitters): Fullback Jared Crank and safety Logan Link

Purdue players are scheduled to report for fall camp Aug. 6 and begin practicing Aug. 7.
