BYU football Prep Tracker 2022 Week 6

As we reach the mid-point of the prep season is great to see how many of the BYU football commits are progressing.  There were a few notable performances this week:

Leo Pulalasi has only played two games so far this season for Lakes High School in Washington, but those two games have been huge.  This weekend he did a little bit of everything with seven carries for 45 yards and two touchdowns, two receptions for 90 yards and a touchdown, 10 tackles (nine solo), one tackle for loss, one pass defended, one blocked field goal, and one interception (returned 13 yards). Oh, and he also punted twice for 52 yards.

Miles Hall is another Cougar who has exceeded expectations this season.  While his weekend was quieter than usual, he still managed six receptions for 53 yards, eight tackles (five solo), and an interception.

4-star tight end Jackson Bowers continues to show dominance on the field.  This weekend he was rewarded as he broke the Mountain View career receptions record for tight ends, passing former 2x NFL Pro Bowler Todd Heap.  Bowers played both sides of the ball in the game and made several key blocks.

Springville quarterback (and BYU commit) Ryder Burton had a challenging offense, but did enough to pull out the win, largely thanks to a stellar defense.  Springville defensive tackle Dallin Johnson racked up five tackles, one tackle for loss, one forced fumble, and two sacks in the 18-14 victory over Provo.

When we asked Johnson about his favorite play of the game he responded that it was actually an offensive play:

“The defensive tackle went to twist on a lead play and I ended up driving one player into another and moved them about seven yards downfield.  I think my ability to plug a hole and then make a move on the play has been the highlight of my season.”

Springville’s offense was not the only one that struggled last weekend.  I asked Johnson how felt about the BYU/Oregon game: “There’s no reason to panic.  We were down a couple guys and that is a very good Oregon team.”

Asked how recruits might feel about BYU losing the game in a tough and somewhat toxic atmosphere, he replied:

“In regards to ‘the chant’ how could you want to be at a place like that? [referring to Autzen Stadium in Oregon].  I mean, look at the Baylor game.  Their fans are talking about what a great experience they had.  There just isn’t an atmosphere like Lavell Edwards Stadium.”
