Getting to know incoming BYU football commit, Micah Fe’a (QB, Class of 2021)

Micah Fe’a is a BYU football commitment for the Class of 2021, giving a verbal commit to the Cougs on January 28, 2021. 

Fe’a is a 6-foot-4 210 pound quarterback that prepped at Orem High School (Orem, Utah).  As a senior he completed 104-of-167 passes (.623) for 1411 yards and 14 touchdowns against 8 interceptions.  He rushed nine times for 69 yards and two more scores (MaxPreps).  As a junior he went 97-of-163 (.595) for 1451 yards and 13 touchdowns to just three interceptions and rushed 14 times for 46 yards and another score.  His sophomore season Fe’a complete 6-of-12 passes (.500) for 105 yards, rushed twice for 14 yards, and caught four passes for 105 yards and a score.  He also played a few snaps as a freshman completing 1-of-4 passes for five yards and rushing once for another yard.

Fe’a was part of a state title team as a sophomore and then led them to two more championships during his junior and senior seasons. We was an All-Region first-team selection as a senior after being an honorable mention as a junior.  He also ran track as a junior and played on the basketball team as a senior.

He committed to BYU as a preferred walk-on.  He will join the team in 2023 after serving an LDS mission. I caught up with Fe’a to ask him about his recruiting.

BYU Insider: Why did you choose BYU?

Fe’a:  Because it has always been a dream of mine to play there.  I’ve had the opportunity to grow up a huge fan of the Cougars and I finally get this opportunity to BE a cougar! 

BYU Insider: What is the best advice you’ve ever received?

Fe’a:  My dad has always taught me to be humble and he always tells me that my character will take me further than anything else.
