Utah football notes: Devontae Booker stands out at running back
Utah notes » Junior rushes for 103 yards during scrimmage.

< Previous Page

A little air might’ve left the stadium as fans realized Dres Anderson and Kenneth Scott wouldn’t be playing in the game, but Dominique Hatfield quickly gave fans something to cheer about.

The sophomore receiver led all pass-catchers with 93 yards on four receptions, but the biggest was a 46-yard touchdown pass, the first of the exhibition. He leapt up over a couple of defensive backs to snag Adam Schulz’s long bomb out of the air. It had apparently been pre-planned before the contest

At a glance

OFFENSIVE HIGHLIGHT »  On a fourth down play, Travis Wilson found Brian Allen midway down the field, and the sophomore receiver managed to stutter-step his way to the end zone for a 56-yard play. It was Allen’s only catch of the scrimmage, and Wilson’s only touchdown pass.

DEFENSIVE HIGHLIGHT »  The Red Team was sniffing the end zone right before halftime, but Filipo Mokofisi put an end to that quickly. As time ran out, the defensive lineman managed to get his paws on a Brandon Cox pass and take it 52 yards down the sideline before being wrangled down by Cox himself.

STANDOUT »  Devontae Booker offered fans a sneak peek to what he’s about. He had a game-high 103 rushing yards and two scores, including one from 10 yards out. Tough and hard-hitting, the running back has quickly made an impression on the coaching staff and will be in the mix for the starting position this fall.

"I figured Dom was going to be moving today," Schulz said. "I told him before the game, ‘Hey, if we get a chance, man, take off. I’m going to lob you one.’"
