FootballScoop is proud to announce that Brent Pease (Boise State) is the 2010 FootballScoop Wide Receivers Coach of the Year presented by SpeedTracs.
Under the tutelage of Pease, a dynamic trio of receivers helped Boise State averaged 46 points per game, while completing 71% of passing attempts.
Receivers Titus Young and Austin Pettis developed into one of the nation’s most dangerous combinations. Young and Pettis combined for 160 yards per game and scored 18 touchdowns. Both receivers earned First Team All-WAC honors. The development of junior receiver Tyler Shoemaker gave quarterback Kellen Moore three reliable options. Shoemaker averaged an impressive 18 yards per catch and added 4 touchdowns.
From blocking to toughness to making the clutch catch, the Boise State receivers showed they are the complete package. Pease’s group helped the Broncos convert 49% of third-down opportunities (11th nationally), while averaging 519 yards per game. A number of coaches nominated Pease for this award, several of which mentioned the overall physicality and toughness from his group of receivers.
Head coach Chris Petersen told FootballScoop, "Coach Pease has been doing an outstanding job with the Broncos' wide receivers, and it's nice to see others are noticing what we have been seeing here in Boise the last five years. It's enjoyable for players to work with coaches who not only want to make them better players, but who want to help them become better people. We definitely have that with Coach Pease."
Boise State finished 11-1 and earned a trip to the MAACO Bowl in Las Vegas on December 22nd, where the Broncos will play Utah.
The FootballScoop Coaches of the Year awards presented by SpeedTracs are the only set of awards that recognize the most outstanding position coaches in college football.
