A lot of “ATH” in the BYU Class of 2022: BYU Football Prep Tracker Week 6

In week 6 of prep action several BYU recruits showed they can play just about anywhere they are needed on the field.

Cannon DeVries (WR/FS, Weber) had another big game with 71 receiving yards (and two touchdowns), 73 rushing yards, 101 return yards, and 10 tackles.  Jarinn Kalama (WR/FS, Wasatch) had his most productive game thus far this season with three receptions and a team-leading seven tackles. And Parker Kingston (QB, Roy) did a little bit of everything, going 9-for-14 passing for 110 yards, rushing 16 for 153 yards and three touchdowns, and punting twice for 93 yards.

BYU recruits also won in the trenches.  Kaden Chidester (DL, Richfield) had two sacks, while offensive linemen Peter Falaniko (Pine View), Vae Soifua (Orem), and Talin Togiai (Rigby ID) all helped their teams to blowout wins.
