One of the best in the conference at what he does.

Impact pass rushers can make a big difference in the Mountain West. Utah State’s Tipa Galeai, who comes in at #10 on our yearly list of the conference’s best, proved he was exactly that from the get-go in 2018.

Galeai’s first full season with the Aggies began with a two-sack performance against Michigan State and ended with his name atop the Mountain West’s leaderboard with ten sacks total. He also finished in a tie for fourth with 14 tackles for loss, picked off two passes and forced three fumbles, a significant reason why Utah State finished third nationally by Adjusted Sack Rate and in the top 20 by Success Rate, points per trip allowed inside the 40, and IsoPPP.

Now a senior, Galeai will have one last season as a linchpin in what should remain a very tough Aggies defense. Quarterbacks beware.
