2011 CFN Preseason All-WAC Offensive Player

QB Bryant Moniz, Sr. Hawaii

Moniz led the nation in total offense as the new leader and star of the high octane attack. Last year he completed 65% of his passes for 5,040 yards with 39 touchdown passes and 15 picks while finishing third on the team in rushing with 104 yards and four scores. He went over the 300-yard mark 11 times with a 532-yard day against Louisiana Tech, a 560-yard performance against San Jose State, and with three touchdown passes or more in ten outings. He’s not all that big and he doesn’t have a huge arm, but he’s great on the move and he has the timing of the attack down cold. Cutting down on his picks is a must after closing out the year with eight interceptions in the final four games, including four thrown in the bowl loss to Tulsa, but he’s going to put up monster numbers once again and should be a threat for another 5,000-yard season if the new receivers can play like veterans.

2011 Preseason All-WAC Defensive Player

LB Bobby Wagner, Sr. Utah State

The 6-1, 232-pound senior followed up a 115-stop season with 133 tackles, eight tackles for loss, and four broken up passes. He bulked up to get to his current weight, but it didn’t slow him down after starting out his career as a Rover and a pass rushing end. While he can work on the outside, he’s the team’s biggest linebacker and is needed on the inside to hold up against the better running teams. He’ll always be around the ball. Always.
