Offensive guard/defensive tackle Tony Bergstrom (6-6, 235, 4.9) from Salt Lake City (Utah) Skyline is one of the best kept secrets from the beehive state for the class of 2005. The word is about to get out that Skyline high school has a legitimate D-I prospect.
Bergstrom was selected first-team all-region and all-state (HM) for his junior season performance. He is hearing from several schools and had two verbal offers from Utah and Utah State.
Utah may have the inside track for his services since they are the local school and Bergstrom has always liked the Utes. Now that the Utes are a program on the rise, they will doubly tough to beat.
“Tony started every game for us as a junior,” Skyline coach Roger Dupaix said. “He will start both ways as a senior. He will play guard on offense and tackle on defense.”
Bergstrom is a terrific all-around athlete who also participates and has lettered in basketball and track.
“Tony has outstanding leadership qualities,” Dupaix said. “His teammates really look up to him.”
Bergstrom benches 270-pounds, squats 350-pounds and recorded a 29-inch vertical jump.
“Tony is very aggressive and physical,” Dupaix said. “He really gets after it.”
“Tony is fundamentally sound football player,” Dupaix said. “He has great attitude and is always striving to improve.”
Bergstrom brings a lot to the table for any school that will recruit him. He could end up playing tight end or on the defensive front on the next level. He also has the frame that could add more weight without skipping a beat.
Bergstrom is a very intriguing prospect.
