2018 Mountain West Football 50 Best Players: #36, San Diego State AZTEC Parker Baldwin
Another of San Diego State’s many talented defensive backs continues our countdown of the Mountain West’s top 50 football players.
Baldwin leads a young and very skilled unit.
San Diego State’s Parker Baldwin, who plays the unique AZTEC position in Rocky Long’s defense, returns for a second time to our countdown of Mountain West football’s 50 best players. He comes in this year at #36.
Though he played through injury for most of the 2017 season, Baldwin continued to play an important part in the Aztecs’ sustained run of defensive dominance, racking up 75 tackles, 1.5 tackles for loss, one forced fumble and one interception in 13 games. Baldwin himself would probably disagree with our assessment, though, as he acknowledged that he wasn’t satisfied with his level of play back in June:
Now heading into his senior year and third season as a starter, Baldwin is one of the most experienced defenders in the conference and the senior member of one of the Group of 5’s most formidable secondaries, and he’ll hope to propel San Diego State back to the top of the West division.
