Tragedy hit the Utes hard exactly one week before the opening of camp. A single-vehicle rollover near Cuba, N.M., claimed the lives of three teenagers — incoming Utah freshman Gaius “Keio” Vaenuku, Texas A&M redshirt freshman Polo Manukainiu and 13-year-old Lolo Uhatafe.

Manukainiu and Uhatafe are the stepbrother and younger brother of Utah freshman Salesi Uhatafe, who survived the accident along with his father.

Whittingham and Utah assistants Morgan Scalley, Sharrieff Shah, Kalani Sitake and Ilaisa Tuiaki attended the funeral services in Texas.

Vaenuku and Uhatafe were teammates at Trinity High School in Euless, Texas, and part of the Utes’ 2013 signing class.

joseph smith plays for the Utes huh? Well... Brigham young himself did establish the university of Utah so I guess that makes sense.
