Hard work is the key for Snow OT

Snow OT Jordan Devey (6-7, 325) has been hard at work this summer, both in the weight room and on the field. He's preparing himself for a big 2010 season and he hopes his dedication pays off with a D-1 scholarship offer...

"Utah State is the one school I've talked to so far," Devey told JCFootball.com recently. "They told me they are really interested in me and will be recruiting me, but so far, they are the only school that has really talked to me."

As a high schooler, Devey didn't put on the pads, but did support the football team in his own way.

"I was in the band in high school," Devey said with a chuckle back in May. "I had never played football before and then I went on my (LDS) mission, so when I got home, I was sorta thinking about what I wanted to do and people said I should try football."

Devey spent 2007 and 2008 in Costa Rica and said it was a life-changing experience.

"It was a great thing for me to do," Devey said. "It was beautiful there, but down there you don't eat a lot of meat, it's basically rice and vegetables, so I was pretty lean when I came back."

Devey said he weighed 320 when he left the states and when he returned he was 250.

"When I got back, the first thing I needed to do was get bigger and stronger," Devey said. "When I got here to Snow, I could only bench 150 and now I'm up to 335 so it's been moving in the right direction for me.

"I played last year around 305 or so and I've added strength and size and that's been my focus this offseason. I'm also working a lot on my technique and my footwork because I played guard last year and I'm going to move to left tackle this fall."

Devey told JCFootball.com that his squat max has also improved to 475 pounds as well.

He will finish his AA degree in December and he'll have three years to play two following the 2010 season.
