It's not quite the Heisman Trophy, but University of Wyoming nose tackle Chase Appleby is up for the 2016 Piseman Trophy Award.

The Piseman Trophy is SBNation.com's award for best college football lineman of the year.

Appleby's senior season highlight reel was loaded with big tackles and sacks. The two plays that stood out the most to Pokes fans this season included the pick-6 to seal a win versus Colorado State...

And, the strip sack that led to the game winning safety versus Boise State...

And of course was responsible for the "Wyoming Safety Dance" and Cowboy Josiah Hall becoming and internet sensation.

Unfortunately Chase tore his MCL in early November, ending his season and UW career. What a great way it would be to send the senior off with an award!
