Richter-Howard Receiver of the Year: Aaron Burbridge, Michigan State
No if ands or buts about this award, Michigan State’s Aaron Burbridge deserves to be the wide receiver of the year in the Big Ten.
Burbridge not only led the conference with 75 receptions and 1,158 yards to go with an impressive seven touchdowns as well. He was the only wide receiver in the Big Ten to go over the 1,000-yard mark and also led the Big Ten with an average of 96.5 yards per game.
Those are all impressive numbers, but his athletic ability was on crazy display this season. Of course, Burbridge would leave it all on the field in his final game of the 2015 season..literally twisting and laying himself completely out for a TD grab against Penn State in Week 13.
