Boise State’s Tyler Horton earns Mountain West Defensive Player of the Week

NCAA Football: Boise State at Troy Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

I don’t want to pat myself on the back (too much) but I think this goes without saying:

Stupid misspellings aside, my point still stands.

Horton’s defensive two-TD effort was pretty darn good on Saturday. To that end, the Mountain West Conference also made sure to agree with my correct prediction.

I think my favorite line from this release is the opening one:

The Kings of Chaos added to their treasury

It’s nice to see that Horton is taking advantage of his final season at Boise State. It seems as though each of the captains are making waves, at least for now, and stepping up in their roles. I know that Frazier did not have the stat sheet of some of the other Broncos, but he played well and stopped the Troy two-point conversion from succeeding.

Course, it’s not a wonder that Rypien didn’t get the Offensive Player of the Week. Cole McDonald of Hawaii absolutely lit up Navy in the Warriors’ win on the island.

Ah well. Can’t win them all I suppose.

Congratulations to Mr. Horton on what appears to be an exciting senior season.
