3. TOP ARIZONA PLAYERS

Best Arizona Offensive Player

QB Khalil Tate, Sr.
After setting the college football world on fire running for an electrifying 1,411 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2017, Tate was turned into more of a passer under Kevin Sumlin. The offense worked – it led the Pac-12 in total yards – but thanks to an ankle problem, Tate wasn’t quite as effective as expected.

He took off from time to time, but only finished with 224 rushing yards and two scores and completed just 56% of his passes. However, the downfield passing game was strong, and when he was on fire – like he was late in the season – the big plays were there. Now that he knows the offense and is healthy, look out.

Best Arizona Defensive Player

LB Colin Schooler, Jr.
A stud as a freshman – making 93 tackles with two interceptions, taking one for a 66-yard touchdown – the 6-0, 236-pounder bulked up and took his game to another level as a sophomore.

The all-star the inside of the 4-2-5 defense led the team with 119 tackles, picked off two passes – like his freshman year, coming up with huge returns on both of them – and cranked up the plays behind the line in the new defense with 3.5 sacks and 21.5 tackles for loss.
