Mountain West Football: The Top 50 Players of 2022
Our annual countdown of the Mountain West Conference’s 50 best football players has returned.
Who will be #1? Stick around and find out.
There can be only fifty. College football fans, our countdown of the Mountain West Conference’s top players is back once again.
Our staff’s votes, which included a total of 98 different athletes this, eventually coalesced into the list that you will see updated on this page every day from now through August, so bookmark it or simply follow Mountain West Wire on Twitter and Facebook to stay on top of everything and tell us about your inevitable outrage. You can also keep an eye on the hashtag #MWwireTop50, as well.
And if you’re interested in seeing how this year’s list stacks up with our choices from previous years here at Mountain West Wire, you can find links to all of our countdowns from 2018 to 2021 right here (unfortunately, our 2017 countdown has been cast into the digital ether and will require a complete reconstruction at a later date).
