    Good: Gavin Hardison, QB

    What a rocket for an arm Hardison has once again shown off in 2023. Though he’s made some throws he surely wants back, there is no denying the talent Gavin Hardison has when he’s got a clean pocket to throw and can dissect a defense.

    Great: Andrew Meyer, C

    The UTEP middle man on an incredibly gifted offensive line, Andrew Meyer calls the shots and leads the charge of this group that’s been the strength of the offense. Meyer is terrific on the ground and has proven to be a brick wall in pass protection.

    Grand: Praise Amaewhule, EDGE

    For a long time now, Praise Amaewhule has been a hidden figure out west. He’s been a terrific pass rusher and a solid defensive end for years at UTEP.

    This season, however, he’s added some high-level instinctual plays that have seen him catch more than just the savvy college football analyst’s eyes.

    Wonderful: Tyrice Knight, LB

    The nation’s leader in total tackles, Tyrice Knight has 66 through five games this year. He’s doing so because he’s always put himself in the right position with keen instincts and great athleticism to hit the hole before pulling linemen can or run the alley and weave through the trash elsewhere.

    Knight has a pass breakup and 2.5 sacks, rounding out his terrific season to date.
