Athlon goes with four teams.

While we are all anxiously waiting for the college football season to begin. Athlon Sports has been putting out its all-league teams and they go deep by creating an All-Mountain West team that goes four deep, and it is spectacular.

We will discuss the first- and second-team here but go check out their entire list.

The quarterback position will have some debate because the first team goes to Boise State’s Hank Bachmeier and Air Force’s Donald Hammond III. The former is a more traditional quarterback while the Academy signal-callers run a lot with passing being mostly optional.

Both are really good but in different ways and ane example of that is if you were to swap the two, neither would be all that successful. This is not the say these are system quarterbacks but Air Force needs an athletic athlete who can run the ball and be elusive.

Running back is especially deep in the Mountain West and there is great talent on the second team with George Holani of Boise State and Air Force’s Kaden Remsburg.

Overall, there are five teams in double-figures throughout the four-team selection and Boise State leads the way with 17.

On these first two teams, it is the Broncos who lead the way with 11 followed by three other teams with six players each in Wyoming, Air Force, and San Diego State.
