SALT LAKE CITY – The countdown for Hans & Scotty’s 60 in 60 is on. Coming in at #56 is Utah State’s Patrick Joyner Jr. (DE).

Throughout the summer Hans & Scotty are counting down the top 60 college football players in the state of Utah as voted on by the media (and a fan ballot).

“Pat Joyner, defensive end for us from Miami,” Utah State head coach Blake Anderson said of his defensive end. “Played a ton last year, got better and better as the season went along and has become that point of attack, explosive play, defensive end presence. He has the ability to rush when you got Byron (Vaughns) on one side and him on the other. I feel like we have two of the best defensive ends in the league.”
