How can you leave a kid with stats like Wind from PG, off the list. Its like how BYU does their recruiting-never watching game film, recruit strictly on height and weight. No wonder BYU is at best, mediocre, and will be for a long time. Some great athletes in their own backyard, but unless you go to Timpview, BYU wont even give you a sniff. I'm talking about Clay Moss and TJ Wind, the two best running backs in the State, both also State wrestling champions, are great competitors and have heart. These kids are proven winners and more than just a football player. Something BYU is lacking.

Your statistics on Kavika Fonua are incorrect.

Kavika had 162 yards on 16 carries (10 yards per carry) and 3 touchdowns. He did catch just one pass, as noted, for 80 yards and a touchdown. He had 242 total yards and four touchdowns.
