2008 Preseason All-Pac 10 Offense

Preseason Offensive Player of the Year
QB Rudy Carpenter, Arizona State
Somewhat surprisingly, Carpenter was second in Pac-10 passing efficiency while performing behind one of the worst lines in school history. Despite being sacked more than any quarterback in the country, he rebounded from a rough sophomore year to throw 25 touchdown passes and just 10 picks. A fiery competitor, he’ll own most of the Sun Devil career passing marks with better pass protection and decision-making.

2008 Preseason All-Pac 10

Defense

Preseason Defensive Player of the Year
LB Rey Maualuga, USC
At 6-3 and 250 pounds, Maualuga is a human wrecking ball at middle linebacker, coming off his second straight First Team All-Pac-10 season. He had a career-high 79 tackles, 10.5 tackles for loss, and six sacks, but numbers tell only part of the story.  Maualuga is an intimidator, whose bone-jarring hits make receivers think twice about crossing the middle and backs step out of bounds to avoid being punished.
