Kendial Lawrence named Missouri football MVP

Joe Robbins

Lawrence accumulated 1,025 yards rushing and 12 touchdowns on 200 rushing attempts, as well as 114 yards receiving and 18 receptions out of the backfield.

Senior running back Kendial Lawrence was voted by his teammates as the Most Valuable Player and by coaches as the Offensive Back of the Year for the Missouri Tigers on Sunday at the team banquet. Held at Mizzou Arena, the event also recognized the contributions of senior Zaviar Gooden, among others, as the linebacker took home three awards, including the Don Faurot Most Inspirational Player Award.

Lawrence had the best season of his four-year career at Missouri during the 2012 season, as he earned career-highs in almost every major statistical category. He accumulated 1,025 yards rushing and 12 touchdowns on 200 rushing attempts, as well as 114 yards receiving and 18 receptions out of the backfield. Lawrence earned seven touchdowns in the final five games of the season.

The Tigers finished 5-7 during the 2012 season, winning just two of eight conference games in the team's first season as members of the SEC. Missouri did not qualify for a bowl game.
