Mountain West Football 2022 All-Conference Team

Jake Haener, Fresno State Bulldogs Football

The 2022 All-Mountain West Team is led by 15 selections from Boise State, while San Diego State (13), Utah State (12) and Air Force (11) also hit double-digit picks. Fresno State, San Jose State and Wyoming each has 10 selections on the All-Mountain West Team for '22, while New Mexico checks in with nine.

Athlon Sports has released its top 25 for 2022. Now, it’s time to take a look at the best of the best and honor the top players in the league with a release of first, second, third and fourth all-conference teams for 2022.

An important note on the all-conference teams: These are based on how players will perform in 2022. Career statistics and awards matter in the evaluation, but choosing players for the 2022 all-conference team is largely based on predicting and projecting the best for the upcoming year. Also, team strength does not play a role in selections. These are the best individual players at each position in the league for '22.
