2020 Mountain West Football Top 50 Players: #50, Boise State DT Scale Igiehon
The first spot on our countdown of the Mountain West’s best starts with an impact player in the trenches from Boise State.
The Broncos’ big man in the middle is back for more.
Boise State’s defense is always pretty well represented on our annual list of the Mountain West’s top players and this year is no exception. Though the Broncos replace a lot of big names in 2020, one of the biggest (literally and figuratively) is back to anchor the defensive line.
Scale Igiehon has spent most of his first two years on the blue as a role player, but he has already played in 25 games and started five in his young career. In 2019, he had some of his biggest performances in Boise State’s toughest bouts, collecting six tackles in the Broncos’ win over Air Force and seven against Wyoming en route to 39 total tackles on the season.
Now that David Moa and Sonatane Lui have moved on, Igiehon should take on a much more prominent role in 2020 and could create a lot of headaches for opposing running games all fall.
