Curry started 2011 as the C-USA preseason defensive player of the year and did not disappoint, registering 11 sacks, 21 tackles for loss, 72 total tackles, and a league-high six forced fumbles. Brown was the anchor of Marshall’s secondary this season, recording a team high 107 tackles while snagging 3 interceptions.
Besides Curry and Brown Marshall had two offensive players selected as honorable mentions, offensive lineman Ryan Tillman and wide receiver Aaron Dobson.
