2007 Preseason All-WAC Offense

Offensive Player of the Year
QB Colt Brennan, Hawaii
6-3, 196-pound senior Colt Brennan is the absolute, 100%, NFL-caliber real deal running a high-octane offense at peak efficiency. After throwing for 5,549 yards and 58 touchdowns with 12 interceptions, he'll have to be even crisper and sharper with plenty of holes on the line and new running backs who won't take the heat off like Nate Ilaoa did.  His NCAA record-setting stats are ridiculous: nine games last year with 400 yards or more, finishing up with 559 against Arizona State, two or more touchdown pass in every game, with eight games with five or more, and most amazingly, a 72.6 completion percentage. For his career, he's thrown 93 touchdown passes and 9,850 yards, and he can run with 520 yards and eight touchdowns. He's a superstar in full command of the offense as the perfect marriage of talent and system.

2007 Preseason All-WAC Defense

Defensive Player of the Year
LB Ezra Butler, Nevada
More like a defensive end than a linebacker, the 6-2, 248-pound senior has cranked out 146 tackles, 13 tackles and 33.5 tackles for loss over the last two seasons. Way too quick for most tackles, he's a great speed rusher who's proven to be decent against the pass. He'll go into the season as a preseason WAC defensive player of the year candidate and the one the Wolf Pack defense will revolve around.
