A pair of Utah college football players represented the state on Saturday in the annual East-West Shrine Game.
Here's a look at how the two performed during this year's contest, a 14-10 victory for the West team:
Andrew Vollert, TE, Weber State
Vollert, playing for the West team, was used extensively in pass and run blocking and was targeted twice on third-down passes in the first half. He unofficially played 33 offensive snaps and four on special teams on field goal and point-after attempts and kickoff return coverage.
Salesi “Leka” Uhatafe, OG, Utah
Uhatafe unofficially played 30 offensive snaps, playing both at right guard and left guard for the West team. After a 7-yard run on a second-quarter where Uhatafe was a lead blocker, NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock said, “He’s a really powerful lower body guy, created some movement on that (run) block.”
Of note: BYU wide receiver Jonah Trinnaman and Utah defensive tackle Filipo Mokofisi were initially listed on the American roster for the weekend's other all-star college football game, the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl. Neither player, however, played in the NFLPA game.
