  • 2017 Polynesian College Football Player of the Year Watch List

    BOISE, Idaho - Boise State defensive tackle David Moa was named to his fourth postseason award watch list Friday as he was tabbed a candidate for the Polynesian Football Hall of Fame Polynesian College Football Player of the Year award.

    This summer, Moa has already been named a candidate for the Bednarik Award, Bronko Nagurski Award, and the Outland Trophy. Thursday's announcement marks the second-straight year in which he has been named a candidate for the Polynesian Player of the Year award.

    Moa enjoyed a breakout season in 2016, also being named to the All-Mountain West First Team after leading the Broncos with 8.5 sacks while posting 10.5 tackles-for-loss among his 30 tackles (17 solo) from the nose tackle spot. The San Diego native also knocked down four passes at the line of scrimmage and blocked a field goal in the final seconds against BYU on Oct. 20, preserving Boise State's 28-27 victory.

    His sack total ranked second in the Mountain West, and Moa's overall play garnered national attention as he was a 2016 midseason addition to the watch lists of the Outland Trophy, Bronko Nagurski Trophy and the Polynesian Football Hall of Fame Polynesian College Footbal Player of the Year award.

    The winner of the 2017 Polynesian College Football Player of the Year Award will be announced on December 14, 2017. Five finalists will be unveiled on November 30. The presentation of the award will be held at the Celebration Dinner during the Polynesian Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Weekend on January 21, 2018 in Honolulu, Hawai’i.

    Boise State will open its 2017 campaign Saturday, Sept. 2 at Albertsons Stadium, hosting Troy at 1:45 p.m.
