2018 Mountain West Football 50 Best Players: #29, Colorado State LB Josh Watson
The Rams’ middle linebacker is next on our list of Mountain West football’s top 50 players in 2018.
Watson will lead the Rams defense one last time.
Our countdown of the 50 best football players in the Mountain West turns to Colorado State linebacker Josh Watson, who returns to the list for a second time at #29.
Though the Rams defense was often troubled last fall, good luck trying to pin that on Watson. He finished ninth in the Mountain West with 109 tackles, led the conference’s linebackers with seven passes defended, and contributed five tackles for loss, two sacks, two interceptions and a forced fumble. For this, he made the conference media’s honorable mention list.
Watson will once again anchor the Colorado State defense from the middle linebacker position in 2018, a driving force who will work toward finally bringing the Mountain division crown to Fort Collins.
