Top 50 Mountain West players: No. 33 is San Jose State LB Christian Tago

New, 1 comment

We countdown the top 50 players for the Mountain West season and No. 33 is SJSU LB Christian Tago.

Bob Stanton-USA TODAY Sports

San Jose State appears next on our list with linebacker Christian Tago. Tago has been extremely close to getting 100 tackles in a year and in his final year he is hoping to achieve that goal; he had 96 and even missed a pair of games. He is going to be the leader of this defense in 2015 and hopefully help improve off of a mediocre rush defense. If this defense can improve then the Spartans could surprise a lot of teams this year.

Our player countdown will be posted in the morning each and every day, and here is our StoryStream of our countdown. Feel free to agree or disagree, civilly of course, in the comments about the list. New players are in bold.
