Player of the Year Showdown: Group D

We’ve come to the fourth and final group in the preliminary round of the 2012 Play of the Year Showdown.

To recap, Keenan MacDougall won Group A thanks to his fumble-return touchdown against the Montreal Alouettes, Marquay McDaniel’s dive for the pylon and touchdown was the most popular choice in Group B and Keon Raymond’s long interception return for touchdown in the snow was tops in Group C. All of these plays advance to the semifinal round.

They’ll be joined by the winner of Group D, which includes some high-flying acrobatics by Nik Lewis, a Fred Bennett return of a blocked kick, a scoop and score by Brandon Smith and a record-breaking run by Jon Cornish. Check out the video and cast your vote. The winner will be announced on Tuesday, Feb. 19.
