2011 Mountain West Football Awards: Boise State's Kellen Moore Is Player Of The Year

The 2011 Mountain West football post season awards have been released. There was only one unanimous selection and one would think it would go to Boise State quarterback Kellen Moore, but it actually went to San Diego State running back Ronnie Hillman. So, it is somewhat odd that Hillman was a unanimous selection, yet Moore won player of the year.

San Diego State and Boise State tied for the most first team selections with seven a piece and New Mexico wide receiver Deon Long is the first freshman to earn all-conference honors since UNLV wide receiver Ryan Wolfe was a freshman back in 2006. I was somewhat surprised that Casey Pachall beat out Brett Smith for the second-team quarterback spot.

The complete awards after the jump.
