She told me I played good, but she told me I could play better. She told me I need to put up more touchdowns. That was her analysis for me. —Tyler Huntley after the BYU game

Utah quarterback Tyler Huntley gets honest feedback from all of his coaches, but none more so than his first coach, his mom, Regina.

After the North Dakota game, Regina Huntley told her son that she could do more to avoid being sacked. Tyler agreed with his mom, and he avoided being sacked against the Cougars Saturday.

So mom’s assessment post-game?

“She told me I played good,” Huntley said with a grin, “but she told me I could play better. She told me I need to put up more touchdowns. That was her analysis for me.”

Both of Huntley’s parents coached his first little league team, and he relies on their support and feedback in analyzing what he does.

“We gotta fix that,” he said of Utah’s red-zone issues, “come out better next week.”
