Boise State Football: Avery Williams is Mountain West Wire’s 2020 Special Teams Player of the Year
The Boise State Broncos returner was a runaway choice among our staff as Mountain West football’s special teams player of the year.
No shocker here.
Mountain West Wire’s 2020 postseason honors:
All-Conference Teams | Offensive Player of the Year | Defensive Player of the Year | Special Teams Player of the Year | Freshman of the Year | Newcomer of the Year | Coach of the Year | Coordinator of the Year
For the second straight season, Boise State’s Avery Williams is our staff’s choice as Mountain West football’s special teams player of the year.
Unlike 2019, however, the Broncos senior won’t have to share the honor with anyone else this time around because he was our unanimous choice after averaging 15.27 yards per punt return and 28.05 yards per kick return, which ranked third and 12th among FBS players respectively. More to the point, Williams also scored four return touchdowns to put himself in a tie for the all-time career record and blocked two kicks for good measure.
All in all, it was the kind of season that capped the kind of collegiate career we may never see again in the Mountain West.
