Savon Scarver 2018 JET AWARD WINNER
SAVON SCARVER CAREER HIGHLIGHTS
Scarver joins tackle Merlin Olsen (1961) and defensive end Phil Olsen (1969) as Utah State's only
consensus All-Americans. He is also just the 16th player in Mountain West history to be named a consensus All-American. In all, 17 different schools from six conferences (including independents) were represented on the All-America team (a total of 27 players selected).
The native of Las Vegas, Nevada, received first-team All-America honors from two of the five
outlets that comprise the NCAA Consensus All-America team in the Walter Camp Football Foundation and the Football Writers Association of America.
Utah State's sophomore kickoff return specialist/wide receiver was also one of two Aggies to earn first-team all-Mountain West honors this season. The 5-foot-11, 185-pounder leads the nation in kickoff returns (34.2 ypr) and is tied for second with a pair of kickoff returns for touchdowns.
Scarver has returned 21 kickoffs for 719 yards, including four returns of 50 or more yards.
His two kickoff returns for touchdowns (100 yards vs. New Mexico State and 96 yards at Wyoming) rank as the second-most in a single-season in school history, behind Kevin Robinson (three in 2007). In fact, Scarver and Robinson are the only Aggies in school history to have multiple kickoff returns for touchdowns in a single season.
For his career, Scarver has three total kickoff returns for touchdowns, which is also second all-time in school history behind Robinson (four from 2004-07). Scarver's career kickoff return average of 28.6 yards is the third-best in Utah State history.
