Boise State’s Curtis Weaver is Mountain West Wire’s Defensive Player of the Year
The Broncos’ sophomore STUD won the battle as our staff’s defensive player of the year in Mountain West football play.
Weaver had another huge year.
The Boise State Broncos were tested early and often on the defensive side of the ball this season, not only by a tough slate of offenses but by injury, as well. Thankfully, some key parts held together in their run back to the top of the Mountain division, and one super sophomore had a huge role in that.
Curtis Weaver, who led the Mountain West in sacks a year ago, is back on top again and won the hotly contested battle among our staff as the Mountain West’s defensive player of the year. The 6-foot-3, 266-pound athlete from Long Beach, California paced the conference with 9.5 sacks in the regular season and finished in a tie for second with 14.5 tackles for loss. He had multiple TFLs in five different games this year.
