2020 Mountain West Football Top 50 Players: #29, San Diego State S Dwayne Johnson Jr.
The SDSU safety is the second Aztec on our list of Mountain West football’s best players in 2020.
Yet another star in the secondary.
The San Diego State Aztecs boasted one of the best secondaries in the country last fall and the production of the next player on our list, Dwayne Johnson Jr., was one big reason why.
Johnson Jr. stepped into the crucial AZTEC role in 2019 and thrived, finishing fifth among Mountain West defensive backs with 92 tackles while contributing five pass breakups and an interception. Though he only earned an honorable mention on the conference media’s all-Mountain West team as a result, he was named among five San Diego State defenders on Pro Football Focus’s all-conference first team.
Though the Aztecs will move into 2020 without the likes of Kyree Woods and Luq Barcoo, opponents will still have to think long and hard about testing San Diego State over the middle with Johnson Jr. returning for his senior season.
