Commentary: The 15 best pass-catching tight ends in BYU football history
PROVO — None of BYU's famed quarterbacks would’ve succeeded without great wide receivers, tight ends and pass-catching running backs. In part two of this three-part series, I look back and analyze the best tight ends in BYU history.
Coming up with a list of 15 guys wasn’t all that difficult. A large separation exists between the good tight ends and the great tight ends at BYU. Ranking them, however, was a different story entirely.
Before beginning, an honorable mention must go to Mike Pistorius (1971-1973). He was the Cougars’ first real weapon at tight end catching passes. In his short stint in Provo, Pistorius caught 53 passes for almost 800 yards.
The tight ends are ranked only by their abilities in the receiving game — it has nothing to do with their abilities as blockers. The stats also include bowl games.
