2008 Preseason All-Big East Offense

Preseason Offensive Player of the Year
QB Pat White, West Virginia

The two-time Big East Offensive Player of the Year and most dynamic two-way quarterback in the country (no, Tebow really isn't dynamic) just keeps getting better as the Mountaineers’ do-everything catalyst.  As a junior, the 6-2, 185-pound White ran for a career-high 1,335 yards, threw for a career-high 1,724 yards, and accounted for 28 touchdowns in another Heisman-contending season.  A game-breaker in the open field, he’s also been ninth nationally in passing efficiency over the last two seasons as he has become a lethal and unstoppable combination of talents.

2008 Preseason All-Big East

Defense

Preseason Defensive Player of the Year
LB Scott McKillop, Pitt
McKillop replaced H.B. Blades about as well possible racking up a nation’s-best 151 tackles, nine tackles for loss, three sacks, and seven passes broken up. A no-brainer on the All-Big East First Team, he’s instinctive, fundamentally flawless, and one of the hardest workers on either side of the ball. Almost as good in pass defense as he is at stopping the run, the 6-2, 240-pounder could be targeting an All-American campaign now that he’s not such a well-kept secret.
