2019 Mountain West Football Top 52 Players: #43, Utah State K Dominik Eberle
The Utah State kicker makes it back-to-back Aggies on our annual countdown of Mountain West football’s best players in 2019.
Eberle’s cannon leg makes the cut.
Utah State kicker Dominik Eberle is next on our list of Mountain West football’s 52 best players this season, coming in at #43 after having one of the Mountain West’s most prolific seasons ever at his position.
Though he wasn’t a Lou Groza Award finalist like he was in 2017, Eberle set a program record with 141 points last fall after connecting on 22-of-28 field goals, including 9-of-12 from beyond 40 yards, and tied the NCAA record with 24 kicker points against New Mexico State. He also managed a touchback on 63.9% of his kickoffs, too, helping propel Utah State to a top-40 finish by Bill Connelly’s Kickoff Efficiency metric.
With so many offensive weapons having moved on this off-season, Eberle’s ability to help the Aggies finish drives could be even more crucial this fall. In a Mountain West flush with quality specialists, that edge should definitely keep Utah State in the mix.
