'Dogs Place 11 on All-WAC Team

QB Paul Pinegar, WRs Paul Williams and Adam Jennings(STs), RB Wendell Mathis, T Dartagnon Shack, C Kyle Young, DL Garrett McIntyre and FS Tyrone Culver were named to the first team. McIntyre was also named WAC Defensive Player of the Year.

CBs Richard Marshall and Marcus McCauley, and LB Dwayne Andrews made the second team.

The 11 players were the most of any team in the WAC. Nevada was the next closest with 10. If PK Clint Stitser does not get hurt, he would have been 1st all-WAC, and Bryson Sumlin was deserving of 2nd team honors until he disappeared the last three games of the year. Pinegar was probably a lock for offensive player of the year until his meltdown in the second half of USC and against Louisiana Tech. Therefore, Nevada's B.J. Mitchell was chosen by default. Marcus McCauley, like Richard Marshall last year, was overlooked and deserves first team honors.

Here was my preseason all-WAC team, see how it compares.
