2021 Mountain West Football Top 50 Players: #40, San Diego State DE Keshawn Banks
The Aztecs defensive end shouldn’t be overlooked among the Mountain West’s top performers on the gridiron.
An underrated veteran, back for more.
When there is a rising superstar as part of a team’s unit, it can be tempting to overlook other strong performers within the same grouping. With someone like Keshawn Banks, the next player on our annual countdown of the Mountain West’s best, there are good odds you’d pay the price for doing so.
Before he was forced to sit out the season finale with injury, Banks put in plenty of work for San Diego State alongside Jonah Tavai and Cameron Thomas on the defensive line, contributing 14 tackles, five tackles for loss, five quarterback hurries and a forced fumble. 2021 will mark his third year as a starter on the Aztecs defense and, given a normal off-season to prepare and get healthy, it shouldn’t be a shock if he reintroduces himself as an all-conference kind of performer once again.
