2008 Preseason All-WAC Offense

Preseason Offensive Player of the Year
RB Ian Johnson, Boise State

He ran for 1,041 yards and 16 touchdowns, averaged five yards per carry, and caught 25 passes for 312 yards and a touchdown yet had what was considered an off season. After tearing off 1,713 yards and 25 touchdowns as a sophomore, yeah, he was a bit down, but he was also hurt last season missing time in two games with a bruised kidney and wasn't quite back to form for a week after coming back. It turned out to be a problem in the bowl game getting just four carries in the loss to East Carolina. After bulking up a little bit, he's hoping to be able to take more of a pounding. The 5-11, 195-pounder, when he's right, has tremendous burst, is a great workhorse, and is automatic around the goal line.
