2007 Preseason All-Big East Offense

Offensive Player of the Year
QB Pat White, West Virginia

White is back for his third year as the catalyst of the high-powered Mountaineer spread offense.  The reigning Big East Offensive Player of the Year raced for 1,219 yards and 18 touchdowns on the ground a year ago, displaying game-breaking wheels whenever he found a sliver of daylight.  More than just a scrambler, White is also developing into a better pocket passer, making him downright lethal in play-action.  He threw for 1,655 yards and 13 touchdowns in 2006, and would have been No. 9 nationally in passing efficiency with one more attempt.

2007 Preseason All-Big East Defense

Defensive Player of the Year
DT Eric Foster, Rutgers
Led by
Foster, one-half of the front four that helped make Rutgers one of the nation’s top pass-rushing teams in 2006 is back.  At just 6-2 and 265 pounds, he's not your typical tackle, but a lack of size couldn’t prevent him from racking up 51 tackles, 14 tackles for loss and six sacks in a breakthrough 2006.  An energetic menace with lightning quick moves, he’s the spiritual and physical catalyst for this defense.
