As a precursor to next week's American Athletic Conference Summer Kickoff and Media Days, we're spending the next few days previewing various parts of the conference, from schedules to story lines to significant players.

Today: our AAC media poll.

We surveyed approximately 30 media members (from conference beat writers to national reporters), asking a simple three-part question: In your opinion, who is the AAC's top (A) offensive player, (B) defensive player, (C) coach.

Twenty-three responded. Here are the results:

Top Offensive Player
QB Quinton Flowers, USF 22
WR Courtland Sutton, SMU 1

Top Defensive Player
DT Ed Oliver, Houston 19
LB Shaquem Griffin, UCF 3
LB Genard Avery, Memphis 1

Top Coach
Ken Niumatalolo, Navy 15
Charlie Strong, USF 3
Chad Morris, SMU 2
Philip Montgomery, Tulsa 1
Randy Edsall, Connecticut 1
Mike Norvell, Memphis 1

The media's projected finish of each AAC team (that poll is conducted by the league) will be released next week at the Summer Kickoff in Newport, R.I. (Spoiler alert: USF is expected to be projected as conference champ.)
