BOISE, Idaho — The Boise State Bronco football team took time this week to honor some players who made a huge impact this season for the Mountain West champions.
Curtis Weaver was named the Bronco's "Player of the Year" and also earned "All-American honors." Weaver was the only group of five player to do so.
On the offensive side of the ball, wide receiver John Hightower and Khalil Shakir were named co-offensive players of the year for the Broncos and the respect they have for each other is obvious.
"I mean, to be put up with his name... the dude is something special. Crazy fast, freak athlete. Just to be put next to his name is something special," said Shakir.
Kekoa Nawahine - the senior safety from Meridian - was named the Broncos "Defensive Player of the Year" and Avery Williams earned the honor as the teams "Special Teams Player of the Year."
All of these awards were voted on by the players.
