In 2015, Mid-South Conference officials renamed the league's offensive player of the year award to honor former Georgetown College great Craig Mullins – outstanding quarterback at Georgetown as well as a legendary offensive coordinator for the Tigers.

This season JJ Jude became the first GC player to earn the Craig Mullins MSC East Offensive Player of the Year. The senior rushed for 772 yards on 150 carries with nine touchdowns. He was three-time MSC East Offensive Player of the Week this past season while helping Georgetown to a 7-4 mark and a 20th conference title.

He also earned first-team all-conference honors for his efforts. Joining him were teammates: Mitchell Wessel, Kyle Longworth, Cade O'Bryan, Cameron Oshodi, Max Nussbaum and Josh Harris. The Tigers finished with seven players of the 29 honored on the first team.

GC added eight of the 32 players recognized on the second team. Those players are: Jake Etler, Sam White, Ross Cox, Edward Moore, Jake Blust, Dustin Haraway, Brandon Napoleon and Josh Depp.

Nine of those 15 Tigers were honored a season ago, while Blust is receiving recognition for a third straight season.

Georgetown not only took care winning on the field this season, but were honored for their studiousness in the classroom as well. The conference acknowledged 142 MSC All-Academic winners – maintaining a 3.25 grade point average with at least sophomore standing – and 18 of those were Tigers.

Two Tigers are receiving the award for a third time – Haraway and Kyle Longworth. Six are second-year honorees: Luke Collins, Blake Ellis, Connor Ford, Dylan Haraway, Nick Kathman and Gus Shrader. Nathan Bader, Zachary Barber, Etler, Shawn Gilliam, Brandon Gray, Jude, Ozzie Mann, Luke Sharrock, Ryan Woolf and Jake Zabonick were all first-time recipients.

Georgetown had the third highest honorees as Reinhardt University had 24 and Lindsey Wilson College had 20.
