BYU Football Prep Tracker Week 2: OL commit Soifua dominates in blowout

In week two of prep action several BYU football commits had dominating performances in lopsided victories.  Braxton Fely had a huge game with eight tackles, six tackles for loss, and a 10 yard sack.  Jarinn Kalama and Noah Moeaki both had two touchdown receptions in blowout wins, while Micah Wilson had eight tackles and a sack in Corner Canyon’s 42-7 victory over East.

The BYU Insider player of the Week was Vae Soifua who was simply dominant on the offensive line as Orem destroyed rival Mountain View 68-0 (see game film below).  Last week’s Player of the Week Maika Kaufusi led the nation in reception yards.  Unfortunately, he suffered a minor injury and will be out for a few weeks.
