The MWCConnection All-MWC 2021 Post Season Teams

New, 4 comments

Our version of the all-MWC team.

The official all-MWC team will be released later this week. Here at MWCConnection, we are getting involved in the fun by releasing our own post-season content ahead of time.

Members of our team submitted their list of votes and we took the top vote-getters at each position to form our two teams. Since offensive formations are so different, we put 2 RBs and 2 WRs on the team, plus a FLEX, which can be either be a RB or WR. Defensively, we just use a traditional 4-3 with a FLEX thrown in as well for its positions. For special teams, we have a kicker, a punter, and a returner. For reference, here was our pre-season 2021 team from the start of the season.

Disclaimer: There are a lot of great players in the conference and only so many spots. Arguments can be made for many guys to be mentioned or on a higher team. There will always be snubs. Always. Try to treat this list as a group of guys who are for the most part deserving but it’s not as inclusive as it should be. There are other deserving players as well, but we feel everyone who did make it is deserving.

With that being said, here is the 2021 Mountain West Connection All-MWC Postseason Team:

  • There were 19 unanimous selections: Brad Roberts, Charles Williams, Khalil Shakir, Romeo Doubs, Deven Thompkins, Hawk Wimmer, Keegan Cryder, William Dunkle, Zachary Thomas, Jake Stetz, Cameron Thomas, Kyle Harmon, Chad Muma, Khoury Bethley, Even Williams, Jonah Dalmas, Matt Araiza, Daniel Cantrell, and Jordyn Byrd
  • San Diego State, Boise State and Nevada led the way in the most total players on the two teams, which was no surprise as they were the two top teams this year. Utah State had a lower number of players considering they won their division. UNLV had a low number but both were on the first team.
  • Quarterback, Running Back, Wide Receiver, Offensive Line, Linebacker, and the special teams spots were relatively straightforward choices.
  • The hardest decisions were the secondary, plus second-team WR, offensive line, defensive line, and linebacker.

There it is. So let’s hear it. Who did we snub? Who did we put on here that shouldn’t be? Let’s hear your feedback in the comments section.
