Utes At A Glance

Reserve receiver to transfer

Freshman wide receiver Jordan Johnson, who saw playing time primarily on special teams during the 2005 team, has announced plans to transfer to Division-II Abilene Christian University, according to head coach Kyle Whittingham.

The 6-foot-1, 199-pound wideout has indicated to the Ute coaching staff that he won’t be playing football but will instead focus his attention on competing in track and field.

“His first love has always been track, and now he has a good opportunity to do that,” Whittingham said. There was not an opportunity for Johnson to run track at Utah, as the men’s program was cut for budget reasons last summer.

Football team announces

end-of-year awards

The U football team held its annual awards banquet Tuesday night, handing out hardware for the best players at each position. Sophomore quarterback Brian Johnson, who was fourth in the nation in total offense before suffering a torn ACL in the second-to-last game of the regular season, was named the team’s Offensive MVP.

Jesse Boone was honored as the team’s top offensive lineman and also won the Leadership Award, while senior linebacker Spencer Toone was named the best at his position, also taking home the President’s Award, which goes to the player with the highest GPA.

Senior Travis LaTendresse, fresh off a record-setting performance in the Emerald Bowl, won Most Inspirational honors.
