Coach Scott Brumfield announced the signings on last week of Zac Christian, Garland Munns, Nik Wolford and R.J. Best, all Utah prep products. Dixie State lost six players off the defensive side of the football due to graduation.
Christian, a 5-foot-11, 190-pound cornerback, prepped at Fremont High. He was Snow's lockdown corner for the WSFL team-leading defense and led the team in interceptions with six, and also recorded 12 pass breakups as a sophomore.
Munns, a 5-11, 220-pound linebackeer, prepped at Bear River High School. He was another anchor on the top WSFL defense, recording nine tackles in the Badgers' victory over third-ranked ASA College in the Carrier Dome Bowl in New York.
Wolford is a middle linebacker out of Alta High, and was first-team WSFL. Best, a defensive lineman, returns home to St. George after attending BYU and Snow, and prepped at Snow Canyon High.
Sean Covington kicked three field goals and Josh McNeil caught a touchdown pass to help Team Highlight beat Team Nitro 16-3 on Friday in the Under Armour All-America Game at St. Petersburg, Fla.
McNeil, a tight end from Durham N.C., caught a 6-yard scoring pass from Cottonwood High quarterback Cooper Bateman. Bateman and McNeil both committed to Alabama at one point, but McNeil is currently favoring LSU.
