Reilly was recently named one of the 12 semifinalists for the Butkus Award, the trophy given to the nation's top linebacker every season.

Reilly plays both linebacker and defensive end and leads Utah with 69 tackles, 44 solo tackles, 11 tackles for loss, 5.5 sacks, one forced fumble and three fumble recoveries on the season so far.

The Reilly family recently watched Trevor's Utes take on the BYU Cougars, where Trevor's younger brother Drew plays as a defensive back. In that game, Trevor recorded six tackles, five solo tackles, one tackle for loss and half a sack.

The finalists will be announced on Nov. 26 and the winner will be announced by Dec. 10.
