3. TOP NEVADA PLAYERS

Best Nevada Offensive Player

RB Toa Taua, Soph.
A tough, compact 5-8, 220-pound pinball, he led the team with 872 yards and six touchdowns, averaging close to five yards per carry, and was a key part of the passing game, too, catching 22 passes for 202 yards and a score.

He’s got the toughness to be a workhorse, enough flash to hit the home run, and the ability to work between the tackles. He’s a terrific fit for what the offense wants to do.

2. OT Jake Nelson, Sr.
3. WR Kaleb Fossum, Sr.
4. WR Elijah Cooks, Jr.
5. QB Cristian Solano, Sr.

Best Nevada Defensive Player

LB Gabriel Sewell, Sr. 
A huge 6-0, 250-pound thumper in the middle of the defense, he led the team with 91 tackles with three sacks and 7.5 tackles for loss. Now he’ll move to the outside, and after bulking up, he’ll be like a hybrid pass rusher.

Steady throughout his career, he followed up a 78 tackle freshman season with 59 stops in a rough year for the defense, and last year he grew into a veteran star who was always around the ball.

2. CB Daniel Brown, Sr.
3. P Quinton Conaway, Sr.
4. DT Dom Peterson, Soph.
5. DT Hausia Sekona, Sr.
