It would be a tough task for anyone to block speedy defensive end Troy Hinds, but one Brighton lineman that gave it a whirl was their left tackle #70.
Hinds was simply unstoppable. At one time, the big Brighton left tackle tried to block the 6-foot-5, 230-pound Hinds, but was put on his heels.
With the pressure Hinds applied, Brighton ran away from him throughout the course of the game.
While Hinds created problems for Brighton’s offense, his talents weren’t solely relegated to the defensive side of the ball. On offense, Hinds also caught two passes for 25 yards. One was a bubble screen and the other was a fade route.
With BYU scheduled to play Weber State on September 3 next year, Troy Hinds will be standing across the field from his older brother Tanner, who should be a starting running back for the Wildcats.
