Phillips stepped out from behind the counter in his small, pastry-crammed shop to meet customers Charlie Craig and Dave Mullins. They told him they wanted a cake to celebrate their own marriage.

Or rather, he clarified, a “hacker.” Utah’s head coach says he was “the best of the worst” at Provo High. Not easily confused with Tom Dempsey, he estimates his range at “about 12 yards.” “A lot of fakes.
