@Lifelong UteI know what you're saying. Just think of all of
the NFL players that did serve a mission and still played in the NFL, NBA.
It's also kind of hard to gauge if a kid out of High School is going to be
able to make it to the NFL to begin with. After all you can always get injured
during practice, games, off season etc.If my son had a realistic
chance of going to the NFL. He would have my support to serve a mission first.
You can always make a career later in life. But, you only have one chance to
serve as a young man and learn and grow in that capacity. You can choose to play
for the applause of the world or you can choose to give back to the One that
gave us all.
"There weren't anymore linebackers left so yes, he was selected by
default."Unga, Hadley, 1st team all-Pac-12 Shayne Skov, and
about 215 other draft eligible linebackers were still left, so... no.
There weren't anymore linebackers left so yes, he was selected by default.
as a lifelong Ute and lifelong Mormon its tough to see the 26 year old age for
Reilly and Murphy really hurt these guys. If I had a son who had a
realistic shot at the NFL and if that was his goal, I would recommend he not go
on a mission.Missions can wait. You can always go on a mission
later in life, can't play in the NFL later in life.
Whoa Nellie,Actually there is one WAC school in Utah, but they
don't have football. I think Chris was attempting a downplay of Utah State
and BYU. In contrast to Chris's comments, Utah State's two draftees
went higher than Utah's two draftees, and Utah State signed more free
agents. Last I counted, U-State leads the Big 3 with 10 players in all going to
the next level. Utah follows with eight, and BYU brings up the rear with 5.
My, how things have changed! May not mean a whole lot on the surface, but it
looks good to recruits no matter how you slice it.
Congrats to Trevor. It doesn't matter what round you get picked up on. As
long as you perform and play hard.
That's awesome, my favorite player in the draft goes to my favorite team. I
really hope I can make it down to Cortland for some practices this summer. The
team needs depth in edge rushers, I think he'll be a great fit in the
system! Joining a couple great former Ute teammates, Tee Finau and Caleb
Schlauderaff, as well!
Trevor, So many are pulling for you! Utah fans as well as those who know your
story and appreciate men of such high character! Good luck to a future jet!
Congratulations to Trevor.I am very confident that he will prove
himself at the professional level to be a steal from the 7th round.
Shouldn't the little crimson engine that could be comparing themselves to
the drafts of the PAC 10+U instead of the "WAC" (that doesn't exist
any more)??? How does that stack up ekChristy???
I'm glad Reilly will get his chance. I hope all the players drafted from
the state of Utah have success at the next level.
Aggies can't beat the cougs, and the other not good enough for bowl
games.Reminds me of San Diego State. Many draftees, but struggles
to have winning seasons.Doesn't make sense.
"Utah has more guys in the NFL than all the WAC schools in Utah
combined."That wouldn't be hard to do since there are no
WAC schools in Utah.
I expect about 4 more Utes to get signed as free agents.
2 Utes drafted2 aggies drafted1 byU player draftedSounds
Congrats to him! He is a great guy from what I have heard. Wish him the best,
along with the others with ties to the great state of Utah who have been drafted
and who sign as undrafted free agents.
Good luck Trevor. Show them!
Nice. Amazing guy and a gritty and tough football player.
Looked for a while that he would never make it, but he went 233 overall.
Getting several guys drafted is just the norm these days, anything less would be
a disappointment. Utah has more guys in the NFL than all the WAC
schools in Utah combined
And yet another defensive player Kwhit sends to the NFL!Utah
continues to dominate the WAC schools in Utah in terms of sending players to the
NFL, and not coincidentally almost always beats them on the field as well.Think recruits care which school puts more in the NFL? You'd better believe it.Proud UteProud Reilly FanProud Pac 12 memberGo UTES!
