Current and future teammates Cannon DeVries and Aisea Moa lead Weber to victory: BYU Football Prep Tracker Week 9

In week nine of prep football the usual suspects continued to fill up the stat sheets.  Weber high school improved to 7-2 after defeating Davis 35-9, largely thanks to the two BYU commits who play both sides of the ball.  Wide receiver/safety Cannon DeVries had three carries for 35 yards and a touchdown, nine receptions for 128 yards, and eight tackles (five solo).  Meanwhile, new BYU commit and fellow teammate Aisea Moa (DE/TE) had one four yard touchdown carry, five tackles (two solo), and a tackle for loss in the win.

Other prep highlights include Jarinn Kalama securing 11 receptions for 38 yards and a touchdown, with six tackles (five solo).  Brooks Jones had his best game of the season with eight tackles (three solo) and a tackle for loss. And Easton Baker had seven tackles, and a fumble recovery eight yards for a touchdown.

Finally, do-everything quarterback Parker Kingston went 2-for-4 passing for 17 yards, rushed 15 times for 133 yards and a touchdown, had two kickoff returns for 100 yards and an 86 yard touchdown, had an 18 yard punt return, and even recorded one solo tackle.

  • Maika Kaufusi is no. 13 in the state in receiving yards per game (101), no. 20 in receiving touchdowns, and no. 2 in touchdowns per game (2.0).
