SALT LAKE CITY – The countdown for Hans & Scotty’s 60 in 60 is on. Coming in at #22 is Utah’s Micah Bernard (RB).

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).

“Tremendously gifted athlete,” Utah head coach Kyle Whittingham said of his running back. “So gifted that we called upon him to play corner in the Rose Bowl when we virtually had no one left at that position. Very dangerous coming out of the backfield as a receiver, elusive and will really play a big role for us this fall.”

Utah’s Micah Bernard

Bernard is a sophomore from Long Beach, California. He joined the Utes in 2019 after a successful career at Gahr High School. While in high school, Bernard was an All-CIF Southern Section Division 10 and Cal-Hi Junior All-State and Area Offensive Player of the Year in 2017. As a senior, Bernard ran the ball 100 times for 716 yards and nine touchdowns.

His first season with the Utes was in 2019 when he used his redshirt, playing in four games on special teams. During the COVID-shortened 2020 season, Bernard played in all five games, rushing for 76 yards, along with four catches for 25 yards. This past season, Bernard played in all 14 games with six starts, five at running back and one at cornerback. He recorded 87 carries for 523 yards and two touchdowns while hauling in 26 catches for 251 yards and two TD’s.

This fall, the Utes will open their 2022 schedule on the road against the Florida Gators. The Utes and Gators will play on September 3. Utah’s first home game is against the Southern Utah Thunderbirds on September 10.
