Best New Mexico Offensive Player

QB Tevaka Tuioti, Soph. 
It’s all about his health. The 6-1, 199-pounder is smart, quick, and dangerous, but he also got beaten up in his short stint last year. He only saw time in parts of three games, but he threw for 439 yards and five scores with two picks, and he ran for 100 yards and a touchdown. When he’s right, he’s a baller who can carry the offense and the team, but he took big shots last year leading to the concussion symptoms that kept him out for the year.

Best New Mexico Defensive Player

DT Aaron Blackwell, Sr.
One of the bright spots on the defense – and one of the only returning starters in the mix – the 6-3, 288-pounder is a mega-strong nose tackle who can get behind the line from time to time. He came up with 29 tackles with two sacks and four tackles for loss, but his job is to hold up so everyone else can work around him.
