Solomon Elimimian today was named the WAC’s Co-Defensive Player of the Year.
Joining Elimimian on the All-WAC first team are Adam Leonard, John Estes and Ryan Mouton.
Michael Washington, David Veikune and Keala Watson are on the second team.
Veikune deserved to be on the first team. And it’s surprising that Josh Leonard was shut out.

Rodney Bradley, a 6-foot-1, 190-pound wideout from Navarro Junior College (Texas), has accepted a football scholarship from the Warriors.
Bradley told The Advertiser he made his commitment last night.
Bradley said he is capable of running 40 yards in under 4.4 seconds — a claim supported by Navarro assistant coach Kevin Curtis.
Curtis played safety for Greg McMackin at Texas Tech and the San Francisco 49ers. Curtis recommended Bradley to McMackin.
In 11 games for Navarro (10-1), Bradley caught 29 passes for 555 yards. He accounted for nine of Navarro’s 10 scoring receptions. That was quite an accomplishment considering that Navarro runs 70.3 percent of the time.
Bradley will earn his associate degree this month, then enroll at UH in January. He said he will participate in the offseason conditioning program and spring practice.
“I’m looking forward to that,” Bradley said.
Curtis said: “Rodney did a great job for us. He’s going to be a great asset to the University of Hawai‘i. He’s going to get an opportunity to catch a lot of balls in Hawai‘i. He’s going to shine. You’ll hear about this kid in the next couple of years. Hawai’i’s got a steal right there.”
