PROVO, Utah – If it’s the final home game in the career of BYU QB Jaren Hall, he’s delivering some highlight-worthy plays on his way out.

During the second quarter of action against the Utah Tech Trailblazers from St. George, Hall had a pair of deep ball touchdown passes to some of his top receivers.

The first deep touchdown pass was with 8:53 remaining in the quarter. Hall connected with redshirt freshman receiver Chase Roberts on a 57-yard strike that BYU back in front of the Trailblazers 14 to 13.

Roberts has emerged as one of the top receivers in a deep, wide receiver room. The former American Fork High star will likely be one of the top offensive skill players for BYU as they enter the Big 12 Conference next season.

On the next drive, with BYU down 20-14, Hall made quick work of the Utah Tech defense, again finding Keanu Hill for a 45-yard touchdown pass.

Hill’s touchdown grab was his second of the afternoon.

Jaren Hall hasn’t formally announced what his intentions are going to be for next season. However, during the pregame of the BYUtv broadcast, the announcers said that BYU offensive coordinator Aaron Roderick told them on Friday night that he expected Hall to return to BYU next season.

Hall said earlier in the week he hasn’t made any such decisions on his future. But the deep ball has been an area of focus for the former Maple Mountain High quarterback, who has been at BYU since the 2018 season.

Jaren Hall finished the first hall with 275 yards passing, completing 14 of his 18 attempts.
