* = 2087 saw the Rookie of the Year voting come down to a tiebreaker between the Lions' Punter Drake Langfield and the Patriots' Kicker Shawn Blythe. The SWA Director had the SWA members submit another ballot, voting just on the top three vote getters (which included the Bengals' TE Louis Shaddy) to determine the final result.


 
 

USAFL SWA AWARDS
The USAFL SportsWriters Association began naming award winners in 2008.

The SWA is coordinated by Director Mark Thul.

The seven current voting members of the SWA are Jason Hink, Lee Remley, Mark Ricotta, Mark Thul, Steve Harrison. Mike McNally, and Lou Lombardo.

Members are appointed by the USAFL League Office based on consistent participation in league activities, frequent article contribution, and responsibility factors.

2088 UPGRADE:
The SWA increased their membership to a total of 7 members. Commissioner Lewis approved the increase at that time to reduce the likelihood of a tie.

AWARD NAMES:
The MVP is named after the USAFL's most famous player from the league's original era online, defensive lineman Bing Bennett.

The RoY is named after a former GM, Tim Arkwright. Arkwright created a dynasty with his Atlanta Falcons by having an uncanny knack at drafting studs out of College.

The GMoY is named after the league's co-founder Jim Maurer. Maurer only participated in the USAFL for 12 seasons, but his passion for the game made an impact on every GM in that era. Those GMs strive to continue his passion and have made the USAFL the success that it is today.

TIEBREAKS:
In the event of a tie in the results, the League President will submit a ballot (without knowledge of the previously submitted ballots). This tiebreaker ballot will only be used for the award that is tied and will not affect the other awards.
