Co-Offensive Coordinator and wide receivers coach Kyle Cefalo continues to be one of the best assistant coaches in the country when it comes to developing his players. Case in point, Utah State is one of just two FBS teams in the nation this year that has a pair of WRs with 10+ touchdown receptions. Furthermore, USU is the FBS team in the nation with three WRs that have five or more receiving touchdowns. Through nine games, USU is 20th in the nation. Junior WR Jalen Royals did not catch a single pass last year, although he played in all 13 games, in his first year in the program. This year, Royals is tied for first in the nation with 11 TDs and leads the nation with five TD catches of 50+ yards. And this kind of success is not contained to just one season. Coach Cefalo’s players traditionally play at a high level and rank among the best in the nation at their position.
