Sae Tautu seizing his opportunity as a leader on BYU’s defense

Sae Tautu has played behind some great linebackers in his time at BYU, but now, it's finally time to shine. And shining, he certainly is. 

“He’s just a big, physical kid and he’s playing really well right now, probably the best of all (the outside linebackers),” appraised outside linebackers coach Kelly Poppinga. “He’s probably not the prototypical BYU (outside linebacker.) He’s bigger. He doesn’t look flashy or fast, like the guys we’ve had in the past, but he knows how to get to the quarterback and he knows how to get pressure.”

Tautu registered two tackles for loss last week, and could becoming a force to be reckoned with moving forward for the Cougars.
