Senior year. Mid-November conference game. BYU tight end Andrew George catches a touchdown pass in a five-point win over New Mexico.
Best day of his life. Easily. His son, after all, was born a few hours prior.
This was in 2009, when George found out that his wifes water had broken during the teams flight to Albuquerque. No biggie. He just hopped on a plane back to Utah after landing, caught the birth of his boy, Jack, and then jetted back to New Mexico for some mid-game heroics.
Pretty wild day, said George, now a graduate assistant with the Cougars, but a pretty awesome day, too.
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to BYU. Welcome to a football program thats one gargantuan happy family.
The schools sports information department estimates that 30 players on the team are married, and many of them have children. Gotta think they were pumped about the invite to Thursdays Poinsettia Bowl. For the kids, this meant Sea World and the Zoo.
