Players vote Bush team MVP

12/14/2004 - USC Trojans

LOS ANGELES -- Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback
Matt Leinart wasn't even selected the most valuable player on his own

That honor went to running back Reggie Bush at No. 1 Southern
California's annual awards banquet Tuesday night. Bush finished
fifth in the Heisman voting.

Seniors Shaun Cody and Mike Patterson shared USC's defensive
linemen of the year award; redshirt freshman offensive tackle
Sam Baker was voted the team's offensive lineman of the year; and
redshirt freshman tailback Desmond Reed was the special teams
player of the year.

Linebackers Matt Grootegoed and Lofa Tatupu shared the most
inspirational player award.

The awards were determined by a vote of the players.
