2019 Mountain West Football Top 52 Players: #30, Boise State G John Molchon
Boise State’s star guard is next on our list of Mountain West football’s best athletes in 2019.
One of the best at his position.
Interior linemen on the offensive line don’t often get a lot of glory, but they absolutely make a difference and perhaps no one in the Mountain West was better last year than Boise State left guard John Molchon, who lands our countdown at #30.
Molchon earned an honorable mention as an all-Mountain West performer in his first year as a starter back in 2017, then played his way to first-team honors last fall as part of a unit that helped the offense average 459.5 yards per game and 6.1 yards per play. That made him an obvious pick for various preseason all-conference teams, but he also found his way onto the Outland Trophy watch list, as well.
Now entering his third year as a starter for the Broncos, Molchon is firmly entrenched as one of the best guards in the Mountain West (and probably the Group of 5, too). It may be a little harder to see him work on Saturdays than most, but you should make the effort to pay attention.
