Cougar Greats Mix, Mingle with BYU Summer Campers

Week two of BYU Summer Camp revealed lots of new prep faces mixing and mingling with familiar Cougar favorites like <b>Ty Detmer, Brandon Doman, Vai Sikahema</b> and <b>Reno Mahe</b>.

Standout wide receivers like Kahuku High's Spencer Hafoka were hanging on every word from current Philadelphia Eagle Reno Mahe providing real-world pointers from his BYU and NFL experience.

Hafoka, a 6-0, 180-pound speedster who raked up 1,020 yards on 29 receptions last season, impressed Provo onlookers during 7-on-7 drills. He was quick off the line, running smooth routes and demonstrated excellent dexterity and athleticism going up after the ball. In one instance, he made a great over-the-head catch for a touchdown during a series. Hafoka showed he had the speed to separate himself from his less-than-spectacular high school defenders.

A surprise newcomer at wide receiver was junior-to-be McKay Jacobsen from S.L. Carroll High School in Dallas, Tex. As a sophomore, Jacobsen was one of four starting wide receivers for 5A Div. Carroll High, which boasts an impressive 32-game winning streak.

Like Hafoka, Jacobsen stood out from the rest. According to his father, BYU coaches timed him at a 4.41/40. Jacobson is currently 5-10 and 172 pounds and is also a smooth route runner.

Jacobsen had little trouble getting open without much effort and changing directions quickly, a testament to his speed. He has soft hands and made some nice grabs in the open and in traffic.

His father noted that Oklahoma and Texas Tech have already shown recruiting interest in his son. After participating last week at the Stanford camp, Cardinal coaches apparently indicated interest.

BYU coaches are aware of Jacobsen's talent since this is his second year attending the Cougar summer camp.
