BYU Cougs in the news: Cody Hoffman is back on the field; Hamson has career night; Brugman bashes another homer

While much of the focus for BYU fans is on the start of football’s fall camp, plenty of other Cougars are making an impact on the field, diamond or court.

BYU’s all-time leader in receiving, Cody Hoffman returned to the field and recorded his first catch in more than a year while suiting up for CFL’s Ottawa Redblacks.

Hoffman made his first appearance of the season for the Redblacks and totaled one reception for seven yards in a 27-24 loss to the Toronto Argonauts.

He also made news on social media as he showed his support for the BYU coaching staff on Twitter.

I think every BYU fan wished Hoffman had another year of eligibility too.

Hamson has career night for the Fever

Former BYU two-sport star Jennifer Hamson had a terrific performance for the Indiana Fever in an 89-73 loss to the Connecticut Sun on Sunday.

In just her fifth game with the Fever, Hamson came off the bench to score 11 points on 5-for-8 shooting from the floor and 1-for-1 from the foul line. She added five rebounds and two blocks in 15:23 of action.

Since joining the Fever earlier in the month, she is averaging 4.0 points on 66.7 percent shooting from the field and 80 percent from the free-throw line. She has also chipped in with 3.0 rebounds and 1.2 blocks in 8.9 minutes.

Brugman bashes another home run

Jaycob Brugman had one of his best games since joining the Oakland A’s on Sunday as he went 3-for-5 from the plate, including his third home run of the season in a 6-5 win.

Brugman is now hitting .274 with 12 RBI in 40 games.

He isn’t the only former BYU baseball player showing off his power of late.

Jacob Hannemann also went deep over the weekend playing for the Cub’s Triple-A affiliate in a 9-8 win over El Paso.

Hannemann is now hitting .266 with 14 extra base hits and 14 RBI in 47 games in Iowa.

Colton Shaver has been showing off his power as well as he has gone yard seven times in 21 games since he was drafted by the Houston Astros. His latest shot came in his first game with the Tri-City ValleyCats where he connected on a walk-off grand slam.

He is batting .275 with nine extra base hits and 20 RBI during his time with Greeneville and Tri-City.
