Eteuati eager to step up to the pass

OGDEN — A year ago, Bryant Eteuati was teasing and tantalizing Weber State fans with his blazing speed and lightning-quick cuts during kickoff and punt returns.

This year, the junior from Northridge High is hoping to do the same as a receiver.

"We had some pretty good guys last year and I had to kind of wait my turn," Eteuati said. "Now, I think I'm ready to step in and help the team. I think I can be that kind of player."

Eteuati earned first-team All-Big Sky honors last season as a return specialist. The diminutive player averaged 27.94 yards per kickoff return and 12.07 yards per punt return. He took one kickoff 100 yards from end zone to end zone against Montana for a touchdown.

He has only 13 receptions during his two seasons with the Wildcats, but that has been largely due to playing behind established players such as Wiley King, Terry Larsen and Marky Filipe. With Larsen and Filipe graduating last year, Eteuati is one of a handful of receivers Weber State will look to when trying to move the ball downfield.
