Colorado State P Pete Kontodiakos named 1st Team All-Mountain West

It's never a good sign when your punter is your best player.

If you needed any more indication of what a tough first season it was for Colorado State head coach Jim McElwain, look no further than the All-Mountain West teams, which were announced on Tuesday.

The only Colorado State player to make the first team was senior P Pete Kontodiakos.

A good punter is a nice weapon to have when it comes to flipping field position, but if he's your best player, you're going to have a hard time winning too many games, which the 4-8 Rams didn't do much of in 2012.

Kontodiakos, a 6'3, 220 punter from Florida, boomed 59 punts with a net average of 46.5 yards this year and a long of 73. With the Rams offense ranked 102nd in the country in points scored, he got plenty of practice.

Sophomore K Jared Roberts and grad student DL Lanston Tanyi were named second-team All-MWC.

Fresno State led all schools with seven first-team selections, including MWC Offensive Player of the Year Derek Carr.
