Film Review: Utah State linebacker Nick Vigil

After watching Vigil I can say he is definitely in the second tier group of inside linebackers. Let me start this statement by saying personally do not think Vigil is better than Reggie Ragland, but I could see teams that like him better than Ragland because Vigil is more athletic. Vigil has all the tools to be successful in the NFL.His awareness is really good, and he is really...

Utah vs Utah State 2015 – Offense

Utah State Guard JoJo McGlaston's Monsters Dunk is Awesome and Hilarious

The dunk in basketball is the equivalent of the big hit in football. It is the time in a basketball game where a player is really able to dominant another physically.
