A kid that skinny, trying to bring down tight ends and running backs? He’s listed at 222 pounds — which he might make with rocks in his pockets. The sophomore doesn’t seem to mind that he’s arguably the runt of the litter, rolling up his jersey and leaving his midsection exposed every practice. “You can see it out there,” junior linebacker Jared Norris said. “His ribs are showing.” But what Masina lac...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

A pass was deflected at the line of scrimmage, fluttered through the air and was caught by Ute nickel back Justin Thomas, who made a diving interception. Something like that occurred only three times in Ute games last season — from a defensive perspective, anyway. Michael Walker’s fourth-quarter interception at BYU came on a critical fourth-down play, although he probably should have deflected the ball and impr...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

It’s true, ESPN broadcast the WNBA Draft on Monday night. But the network conducted so many live interviews that Plouffe never noticed her name quietly scrolling across the television screen while holding a selection party with her friends and teammates. “I think I saw it the second time around,” Plouffe said. “I was surprised because I didn’t realize it.
