College football is well represented in the state of Utah, with five schools in the state competing in Div. I.
Three of those schools compete at the FBS level—BYU in Provo, the University of Utah in Salt Lake City and Utah State in Logan.
The other two compete at the FCS level—Southern Utah University (SUU) in Cedar City and Weber State in Ogden.
There are plenty of talented players at these five schools. To prove it, I have compiled an all-Utah team, which is basically an all-conference team, except all the athletes play for one of the five Utah schools.
The list includes 12 defensive players, because some schools run the 3-4 while others run the 4-3, so there are both four defensive linemen and four linebackers.
The selections are based on statistics, honors and overall importance to the players' respective teams, but they are still somewhat subjective. Honestly, aren't all All-conference teams somewhat subjective?
There will also be individual awards included, such as Offensive Player of the Year, etc.
Without further ado, let's reveal the 2011 All-Utah NCAA Div. I Football team.
