BYU football: Skill positions virtually the same as last year, with some key additions
“He’s like another offensive lineman out there,” said offensive tackle Braden Brown. “He’s big, he’s physical, and he’s the best-blocking tight end on the team. There’s really not a lot of difference with how he’s able to block and how we are as offensive linemen.”
Then there’s Bryan Kariya. When the Cougars are faced with short-yardage situations, Kariya will likely be getting the football.
“Bryan doesn’t dance around, he just goes,” said running backs coach Joe DuPaix. “He’s very reliable and he runs downhill and he’s physical — he’s someone who can take a hit and keep going.”
With the offense virtually intact from a season ago, it’s an up-and-comer stud who will be making the biggest impact, and that player is Apo.
“He changes the game when he’s in there, he changes what we can do offensively when he’s in there,” said Heaps. “He can do things that other players can’t, he can really do it all. I have a very good connection with him, and I feel that he’ll have a breakout year this year.”
