Week 9 Mountain West Player Of The Week Of The Year
Who tops this week’s rankings?
Ranking the players of the year this week
For those who missed last week’s article, we are doing a different way to determine the Mountian West player of the year. We will still have a staff vote at the end of the year but this will be a weekly total and add up the points and the most earn this award.
This list will include any player, offensive, defensive, and special teams players and is an overall award.
The players chosen this week are all completely different from the week prior and that will make for an interesting race for the best player in this condensed season. Also, with new players entering the poll each week will make this an interesting race this year.
This week saw five different players earn a first-place vote and made for a tight race this week.
There are seven players selected each week with seven points for first down to one point for seventh.
7. Ronnie Rivers, Fresno State, RB – One Point
The Bulldogs running back had a really good day being the versatile back he is known to ber for with 164 yards from scrimmage that included two rushing touchdowns and five catches for another touchdown in the Bulldogs win over Colorado State.,

6. Greg Bell, San Diego State, RB – Two Points
The Aztecs running game seems to be regaining the steam from years past and after two games, it seems that Greg Bell might be their main back. He not only rushed for 157 yards and a touchdown he also had a pair of catches with another touchdown through the air.
5. Xazavian Valladay, Wyoming, RB – Three Points
The Wyoming back had 32 carries for 163 yards and a pair of scores to slowly eat the clock vs. Hawaii this last week in the Cowboys win. He is just a bell-weather back who will take all of the carries and stays strong the entire day.

4. Romeo Doubs, Nevada, WR – Four Points
Receivers this week were off the charts and Doubs was one of two wide receivers to go for over 200 yards. Doubs ended up with 211 yards on just six catches and had a touchdown.
You can't stop him. You can only hope to contain him❕

3. Bailey Gaither, San Jose State, WR – Five Points
The other receiver over 200 yards came from San Jose State as Gaither had 10 catches for 208 yards and a score in their second win of the year.
2. Jack Sears, Boise State, QB – Six Points
Sears got the start as Hank Bachmeier did not travel to Air Force and the USC transfer stepped up for a big game in his first start with Boise State. He led the Broncos past the Falcons and had four total scores — three passing and one — and threw for 280 yards.
Last time the Broncos scored on their first offensive play from scrimmage?
