Five BYU commits represent in state championship games: BYU Football Prep Tracker Week 15

Five BYU football commits represented their teams in championship games this past weekend in Utah, Arizona, and Idaho.

Talin Togiai was the only one to come away with a victory.

Togiai, an offensive and defensive lineman for Rigby high school in Idaho, was a “big” reason that Rigby has been ranked no. 1 all year and came out on top, defeating Highland 27-12.  The 6-foot-6 290 pound lineman helped anchor the top offense in the state one last time as they pounded their way to 27 points.

In three other championship games, BYU commits fell a little short.  Micah Wilson and Cody Hagen weren’t able to secure another state title for Corner Canyon (6A Utah), despite another monster game from Hagen where hehad seven receptions for 127 yards and two touchdowns.  Hagen ends the season as the no. 1 receiver in Utah (for receiving yards and touchdowns) and just nine yards behind Jaden Gibson in Georgia for the most receiving yards nationally.

In the 5A state title game sophomore Dallin Johnson had five tackles and a half sack.  It wasn’t enough as Springville fell to Lehi 35-6.

And in Arizona Cooper Ross and Heritage Academy fell short in the CAA state championship game, falling 42-34 to Imagine Prep.  Ross had one of his best games with seven receptions for 145 yards and two touchdowns, two 2-point conversions, three tackles, and a sack.

That pretty much wraps up the season for BYU commits, with only two still playing (Brigham Alexander and Brooks Jones in Arizona).  Next week we’ll look at season and career totals for future Cougs.
