Colorado Ice Quarterback Willie Copeland Wins League MVP Award

The Colorado Ice

Sure, the Colorado Ice had a very Denver Bronco-like, disappointing end to their season, but that bitter taste was washed away a bit today as the Indoor Football League (IFL) announced their individual awards, and Ice quarterback Willie Copeland was named the leagues most valuable player. 

In the official announcement on the IFL’s website they said:

Colorado Ice QB Willie Copeland is the 2014 IFL Most Valuable Player. Copeland becomes the 4th recipient of the award joining Sioux Falls QB Chris Dixon (2009, 2011-2012), Bryan Randall (2010), and Jameel Sewell (2013).

Before finding a home in Fort Collins, Copeland previously had stints with the Green Bay Blizzard and Cedar Rapids Titans. Copland joined the Ice in 2013 and has led the team to back-to-back postseason berths. During the 2014 season, the Ice finished with an Intense Conference best 10-4 record. Copeland led the IFL in almost every passing statistical category including passing yards (2,376) and passing TDs (56). He also was dangerous using his legs, rushing for 452 yards and 7 TDs.

The news couldn’t have come at a better time as today (June 26) is also Copeland’s birthday.

Copeland wasn’t the only member of the Ice to be honored today, though. The Ice’s head coach Heron O’ Neal was named the 2014 IFL Coach of the Year.

Here is an interview we did with Willie earlier this season, getting to know him a little better…
