Utah football: Top 10 position battles entering fall camp

Published: Friday, Aug. 2 2013 12:02 p.m. MDT

Backup defensive end Next List » 10 of 10 « Prev
The Utes still have several questions surrounding the defensive end position. Trevor Reilly and Nate Orchard are expected to start, and both are capable of being big contributors. However, both were held out of spring football due to injury and will need to prove they can stay healthy.

Jason Whittingham is listed as a co-starter at both end positions heading into camp and will push Reilly and Orchard for reps. Senior Thretton Palamo is a workout wonder who will have one last year to prove he can make the transition from rugby to football. Hunter Dimick made waves as a sack specialist in high school and will finally get his shot to show what he can do at the next level after redshirting last season.

Nice write up again Dan.

A note on DT--

Latu Heimuli is back on D for his final go-around and is truly playing inspired football right now after being repeatedly bitten by the injury-bug throughout his career to date!

He's lost some weight and gives us solid depth! My pick for one to have a true breakout-year in '13!

No mention of Andre Lewis at WR?

Also, Ianu only recently surfaced on campus from all indicators, yet looks the part of one who been 100% diligent in showing-up prepared for success in '13!

Why is poutasi holding a rock above his head?

Did he help out on excavating the new football facility too?


wwookie, that's not Poutasi, it's Pouvave. And that's a common exercise for injured players in the "Pit" during practice, so it's about all the practice footage they could have gotten of him at this point.
