2008 CFN WAC Player of the Year

Colin Kaepernick, QB Nevada
There was supposed to be a quarterback controversy coming into the season, but Kaepernick took the job by the horns and dominated the WAC season. The sophomore ran for 1,130 yards and 17 touchdowns, highlighted by a 240-yard, three touchdown day against UNLV, and he threw for 2,849 yards and 22 scores with seven interceptions. Tall, quick, and with a live arm, he'll no longer be among the nation's best kept secrets going into next year.

Defensive Player of the Year - Jarron Gilbert, DT San Jose State
The former defensive end became a big, quick tackle, and he ended up leading the nation with 22 tackles for loss to go along with 9.5 sacks. He more than camped out in opposing backfields, he was also consistent and tough against the run using his frame and athleticism to clog things up on the inside.
