Who else is better suited to hand out some hardware than the fans who actually watch the games?

Nobody.

The 2nd Annual CCR Mid-Major Freshman of the Year Fan Vote is back, and we have assembled 64 of the top freshmen in the country who played for mid-major programs. We have thrown the names into a hat (literally), and picked them out one-by-one to assemble four “regions” of 16 players each.

There is only one (1) representative from any given school in the vote.

As each round passes, players will go head-to-head in an online vote to ultimately determine who is the top freshman in the land.

The rules are simple. Each round will be one week in length, starting with the first round on February 29th. (Full schedule below).

Votes can be cast in two ways:

  • Online Polls – 1 vote per day
  • Twitter – 1 vote per day
    • Use #CCRFreshmanFanVote + Player’s name (School) to vote
      • EX: #CCRFreshmanFanVote Jorge Rosa (Florida A&M)
    • Any RT of a tweet that uses the proper format counts as 1 vote as well!

Voting will open at 12:01am EST on the Monday of the week, and close at approx. 6pm EST on the Sunday at the end of the week. This allows for accurate vote tabulation and for the set up of the next round.

  1. Hi tyvone,
    I’m curious to know dose Twitter votes out weight via phone votes? Because on one hand Franklin is ahead in polls via phone votes, but on the other hand Fletcher is ahead in polls on Twitter votes. However Fletcher is still considered to be winning…Dose via phone votes not have the same effect as Twitter votes? It seems as if Twitter votes are the only ones that matters.

    1. I’m not entirely sure what you mean by “phone votes”, assuming you mean the online polls? The votes all weigh the same, and a tweet or a retweet is the same as 1 vote in the online poll. The combination of the two make up each player’s total, and although Jaylen has the edge in the online polls, Fletcher has the edge in social media. The margin of social votes for Fletcher has allowed him to overcome falling behind on the online polls and take a slight lead when all votes are combined.

  2. so what we see on here with Franklin leading is the actual poll?
    this is the official place to see who is leading?

    1. Franklin leads in terms of votes through the online poll. There is no way for us to add in the social media votes, which is why we post the combined percentages above the poll each morning.

  3. How could Magee win, when as of 4/9/16 Franklin was leading all the way around? His percentage was higher, & he was leading in online polls. There’s no way Magee had a “big push over the weekend.” #TeamJ.Frank demands a recount!!

  4. SMH… How in the world did Fletcher win when Jaylen been ahead all weekend? Not to mention the fact that as of 1p.m. yesterday (4-10-16) jaylen was clearly ahead of him on Twitter & online voting? I refuse to believe Fletcher won! You need to regroup, recount, & record the correct outcome because that is just unbelievable… SMH.

    1. I counted all of the Twitter votes from the past seven days last night and this morning. Yesterday afternoon, Fletcher’s fans made a big push on social media that put him ahead of Jaylen. Over the week, Franklin had a lead in the polls over Magee but Fletcher’s edge in social media was wider than his deficit in the polls, leading to the win. I counted the votes three times to ensure accuracy.
