Future Cougar Report: Jason Munns

Southridge High School star Jason Munns recently returned home from a weekend trip to BYU. Munns and his family were on hand to watch John Beck and the Cougar offense put up 52 points against the Running Rebels of UNLV. The 4-star quarterback recruit thought the experience was well worth the 24-hour roundtrip drive from Kennewick, Washington.

Following a Friday game against Coeur D'Alene High School, Jason Munns and his family hopped in a car and drove down to Provo, Utah to watch BYU take on UNLV.

"We played last Friday night then left after," said Jason Munns. "We got to my aunt's house around 11:00 and then drove all morning and got to the game. BYU did very well."

When he got to BYU, Munns was able to join other recruits down on the field to soak up the atmosphere at Lavell Edwards Stadium. Joining Munns down on the field were Braden Brown, G. Pittman, Jordan Pendleton and Ryan Kessman.

"It wasn't an official trip, we just wanted to come down and catch a game," Munns said. "I talked to Braden, and quite a few guys came up and talked to me, but I can't remember all of their names. Braden is a pretty tall guy. I think he's taller than me. I actually met quite a few people while I was there."

Due to the long drive to Provo, the Munns family was tired and left a few minutes early and wasn't able to visit with the coaches following the game.

"We showed up before the game and went down on the field," Munns said. "We were going to stay afterwards and say hi to everyone, but I had a lot of my family there and they were all pretty tired so we ended up leaving and going and getting something to eat. We were going to go talk to all the coaches but it just got down towards the end of the game and we all pretty tired from the drive so we took off a few minutes early. I just text Coach Doman and told him thanks a lot and we were going to head off, but I got to talk to him before the game so it was good."

Unable to see BYU's games on television, this was the first chance for Munns to see the Cougar offense in action, and the team did not disappoint with a 574-yard and 52 point performance.

"You know, I've never seen BYU's offense and have just heard about it," said Munns. "It was everything that I had heard. They moved the ball at will and spread the ball around all over the field. They were able to capitalize on all the turnovers and have a very balanced attacking offense between throwing the ball and running the ball. They have great backs that can run the ball and great receivers that can catch it."

Munns watched senior quarterback John Beck and was very impressed with his ability to put the ball wherever he wants on the field.

"He definitely throws a good ball," Munns said. "He is very accurate and can put the ball right on the money. That was one thing that really impressed me about John Beck, his ability to put the ball right in position for the receivers to catch it right in stride. He also has the ability to throw it accurately on short routes to where the receiver is going to be. Those are the things that impressed me the most.

"It was a great experience for me. It was loud on the field, and I think there were over 63,000 fans there. It was definitely cool."
