Two weeks ago Rivals.com introduced you to offensive guard/defensive tackle Tony Bergstrom (6-6, 258, 4.8) from Salt Lake City (Utah) Skyline. The talented lineman from the beehive state has made a decision on where he will attend school and play his college football.
Bergstrom made Utah Ute fans happy when he decided stay close home and play for the Utes.
“Utah is where I wanted to go,” Bergstrom said. “A lot guys from high school go there and my whole family went to Utah and are Utes.”
Bergstrom will serve a LDS mission right out of high school and when he returns the Utah staff will decide on where the skillful two-way performer will play.
Utah feels that Bergstrom could end up playing offensive tackle or defensive tackle upon his return.
Bergstrom was selected first-team all-region and all-state (HM) for his junior season performance.
In a previous interview with Skyline coach Roger Dupaix, he said the following about Bergstrom.
“Tony started every game for us as a junior. He will start both ways as a senior. He will play guard on offense and tackle on defense.”
“Tony has outstanding leadership qualities,” Dupaix said. “His teammates really look up to him.”
“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 chose Utah over an offer from Utah State and many other schools. He received phone calls this past spring from the entire Ivy League, Stanford, Cal, Oregon State, Air Force, Boise State, and even Tennessee.
