LOGAN, Utah – Phil Steele recently announced his annual all-conference team and Utah State had seven players recognized across three teams.

Senior placekicker Dominik Eberle and junior kick returner Savon Scarver were the lone Aggies to earn first-team all-Mountain West honors.

Four different Utah State players earned second-team honors in graduate transfer wide receiver Siaosi Mariner, grad transfer tight end Caleb Repp, senior defensive lineman Tipa Galeai and junior linebacker David Woodward.

Junior quarterback Jordan Love garnered third-team accolades from Phil Steele.

This is just another in a long line of postseason accolades for Eberle as he was tabbed a Second-Team Senior CLASS Award All-American and a Pro Football Focus Honorable Mention All-American.

Eberle was one of just three Aggies to earn first-team all-Mountain West honors this season, along with Scarver and Woodward.

The 6-foot-2, 190-pound Eberle led the Aggies in scoring this season with 108 points as he was a perfect 45-of-45 on extra points and 21-of-24 on field goals. For his career, he was 64-of-81 on field goals (79.0 percent). Those 64 made field goals are both a school and Mountain West record.

Eberle ended his illustrious Utah State career by scoring a school-record 359 points, bettering the previous mark of 308 set by running back Robert Turbin (2007-09, ’11). He was a perfect 167-for-167 on extra points in his career, which is another school record.

The native of Nuremberg, Germany, twice garnered Mountain West Special Teams Player of the Week accolades this season, once after the Aggies beat Wyoming 26-21, and again after he connected on a 30-yard field goal as time expired to lift Utah State to a thrilling 37-35 road victory at Fresno State.

Woodward was named first-team all-Mountain West, Galeai and Love were both tabbed to the second team, while Love and Repp garnered honorable mention all-MW accolades.

Utah State concluded the 2019 season with an appearance in the Tropical Smoothie Cafe Frisco Bowl. The Aggies went 7-6 this year, including 6-2 in league play to place third in the Mountain Division.
