Cornerback Mike Edwards is indeed a skilled football player. That was apparent when he practiced several times as an emergency receiver in 2011, in addition to his duties as a corner and kickoff returner.
He also has showed toughness, playing the second half of last season with a shoulder injury that made it difficult to raise his arm.
Now he has emerged as one of the Warriors’ leaders. Edwards, who will be a junior in the fall, and defensive end Paipai Falemalu will represent the Warriors at next month’s Mountain West Media Preview in Las Vegas.
Edwards has earned the coaches’ respect with his hard work and diligence despite not playing a down in spring training after undergoing shoulder surgery.
Falemalu and punter Alex Dunnachie are considered to be the Warriors’ top pro prospects among the 2012 seniors.
