Football Ranks Second In Preseason All-MW Honorees
June 8, 2012
LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - Buoyed by a strong special teams contingent, an impressive total of seven UNLV football players have been named preseason All-Mountain West by Lindy's Sports -- the second most of any of the league's 10 schools.
Only Wyoming had more players on Lindy's list of first and second teams with 10. San Diego State was third with six. The annual publication is on newsstands now.
Sophomore offensive tackle Brett Boyko (6-7, 310) was the lone Rebel named to the 2012 first team and the Canadian import was also honored for being the conference's "Best Pass Blocker."
Junior running back Tim Cornett (6-0, 205) highlighted the second team as he looks to become the first Rebel to lead the program in rushing yards three consecutive seasons since Michael Morton in 1979-81. The team's defensive representatives were senior linebacker John Lotulelei (6-0, 235) and junior cornerback Sidney Hodge (5-8, 175).
The Rebels boasted a trio of second-teamers on special teams as all-purpose return man Marcus Sullivan (5-9, 195) is slated to be back on the field as a sophomore after a redshirt season. Senior punter Chase Lansford (6-2, 195) and junior place-kicker Nolan Kohorst (6-0, 175) round out the group.
