Mountain West Wire’s 2018 Preseason All-Mountain West Football Team
Our staff has made its selections for the best of Mountain West football heading into the 2018 season.
Who do we believe are among the cream of the crop this fall?
Ahead of the Mountain West Conference’s media summit in Las Vegas this week, our staff has put their heads together for our second annual preseason all-MWC football team.
After launching last July with a two-deep squad, we’ve expanded it to three teams this time around. This year’s preseason selections are headlined by Boise State quarterback Brett Rypien, who leads seven Broncos on our first team.
And if you disagree with our choices, of course, feel free to let us know what you’d have done differently on Twitter.
This year’s voters: Jeremy Mauss, Matthew Kenerly and Matthew Wadleigh (Fresno State), Raja Prabahala (Boise State), Josh Fredlund and Brad Hubbard (Colorado State), Brandon Blake (Nevada), Logan Jones (Utah State), Kyle Russo (San Jose State), Andy Roberts and Keith Scheessele (UNLV), Jesse Tachiquin (Wyoming), Erwin Mendoza and Ted McGovern (San Diego State)
