Ray Feinga named to Outland Trophy Watch List

by Jeff Reynolds, BYU Athletic Communications

PROVO, Utah (April 19, 2008) -- The Football Writers Association of America has announced senior offensive linemen Ray Feinga and Dallas Reynolds have been named to the 2008 Outland Trophy Watch List. Feinga and Reynolds are two of 70 linemen from around the country who have been named to the watch list.

Feinga and Reynolds helped anchor the offensive line last season, providing pass protection for the nation's 25th ranked offense. BYU ranked 14th nationally in passing offense, averaging 298.4 yards per game and led the MWC in scoring, first downs, fourth-down conversions and time of possession on their way to a second consecutive league championship.

"Ray and Dallas bring a great deal of experience and athleticism to our offensive line," position coach Mark Weber said. "These two could possibly be the best guard-tackle combination in college football this season."

Feinga, a 6-foot-5, 331-pound native of West Valley City, Utah started 12 of 13 games last season. He recorded over 70 knock-down blocks and did not allow a single sack all season. He graded out at 82 percent or above in each of the 12 games he played last season and earned a grade of 90 percent or better three different times.

"Ray is extremely talented," Weber said. "He has great strength and athletic ability."
