It’s finally time to release our SIS All-Conference teams. We used our all-encompassing player value stat, Total Points, along with other metrics and our scouting work as leading references in putting together our team of selections for 2022, plus a few honorable mentions.

You can learn more about Total Points and the statistics referenced here.

These picks are meant to honor this season’s best-of-the-best in the Mountain West Conference.


Position Name School
QB Jake Haener Fresno State
RB Brad Roberts Air Force
WR Tory Horton Colorado State
WR Elijah Cooks San Jose State
TE Caleb Rillos Air Force
FLEX Jordan Mims Fresno State
OT Everett Smalley Air Force
OT John Ojukwu Boise State
OG Isaac Cochran Air Force
OG Preston Nichols UNLV
OC Thor Paglialong Air Force

While Brad Roberts was aided by a high-powered Air Force offense, not allowing his Total Points number to be very intriguing, he still led the entire FBS in rushing yards with 1,728. An SIS All-America selection, Isaac Cochran was an easy pick here, leading all FBS OL with 51 Total Points. While Elijah Cooks ranked 7th in Total Points among MW receivers, his 21 receiver Total Points ranked 3rd, behind only Horton and Remigio.


Position Name School
DT Jonah Tavai San Diego State
DT Scott Matlock Boise State
EDGE Viliami Fehoko San Jose State
EDGE Adam Plant Jr. UNLV
LB Ezekiel Noa Boise State
LB Michael Shawcroft San Diego State
CB Nohl Williams UNLV
CB Cameron Lockridge Fresno State
S Jayden Goodwin Air Force
S JL Skinner Boise State
FLEX Jerrick Reed II New Mexico

Jonah Tavai’s 54 pressures ranked 2nd-most in the entire FBS, which is a ridiculous stat from an interior defender, and Fehoko and Plant Jr. both put up good sack numbers in 2022. Lockridge and Reed both ranked in the FBS top 50 in Passer Rating Against. Williams led the conference with 28.6 Points Above Average in coverage.


Position Name School
K John Hoyland Wyoming
P Jack Browning San Diego State
Returner Nikko Remigio Fresno State

Jack Browning and Nikko Remigio were SIS All-Americans this season. Browning is the definition of a dual-threat as a kicker and punter. Browning’s 14 punts inside the 10 tied for 2nd-most in the FBS. Remigio could have easily made the team as a receiver with 25 Total Points on offense, but he had 2 PR TDs, had the highest yards per punt return in the FBS, and also added nearly 21 yards per kick return.

Honorable Mentions

Name School
Chevan Cordeiro San Jose State
John Lee Eldridge III Air Force
George Holani Boise State
Wesley Ndago Air Force
David Perales Fresno State
Jordan Byrd San Diego State

Chevan Cordeiro actually had one more Total Point than Jake Haener with a lot of production coming on the ground. John Lee Eldridge led the MW RBs in Total Points, though much of it aided as a blocker. David Perales and his 11.5 sacks ranked 2nd in the FBS with 48 pressures. Jordan Byrd was also an SIS Honorable Mention All-American after being the only player in FBS who returned both a kick and punt for a touchdown in 2022.
