2021 Mountain West Football Top 50 Players: #16, Nevada DL Dom Peterson
The Nevada defensive lineman is the highest-ranked Wolf Pack defender on this year’s countdown of Mountain West football’s best performers.
Versatile and dangerous.
Nevada’s Dom Peterson has proven over the past two years that he can play both inside and outside along the Wolf Pack defensive line and, though not quite as dominant as he was in 2019, was an easy choice to land on our annual list of the Mountain West’s best football athletes once again.
Though slowed by injuries here and there throughout the 2020 season, Peterson still managed to lead the Wolf Pack in sacks for the second straight year, racking up 4.5 to go along with seven tackles for loss and 27 total tackles.
Back for one more round, Peterson figures to be a prominent figure one way or another as Nevada takes aim at securing the program’s first Mountain West crown.
