Great defensive week for BYU commits: BYU Football Prep Tracker Week 4

In this past weekend of prep action there were several BYU commits that made big plays on the defensive side of the ball.  Defensive end Brooks Jones saw American Leadership Academy off to a great start with an opening week victory over Poston Butte.  Jones had five tackles and two sacks in the win.

Cannon DeVries had a pretty solid offensive game for Weber with two carries for 17 yards and six receptions for 39 yards.  But it was on defense where he came up big.  He had six tackles and two interceptions for the Warriors.  After his game he hurried down to Vegas to cheer on the Cougs.

Sophomore linebacker Easton Baker had another big game for the Stansbury defense as they shut out Uintah 55-0. Baker finished with 11 tackles and a sack.
