This is another great story. Thanks for playing Corby at BYU. We're a better team because of you.

That is a great story, I love the fact that inspite of everyone telling him he couldn't play at a D1 school, he had faith in himself and he worked hard to accomplish his goals. He certainly turned himself into a very good player at BYU. I saw a piece on Corby on BYUtv and it showed his hometown and his upbringing and the impact his mother had on his life. It was very humbling and inspiring to watch. Congratulations on becoming the man your mother dreamed of you becoming. Good luck in the future Corby!

The recent run of feel good stories by the DN makes me believe the Cougars must be struggling on the recruiting front.

Nice story on a terrific young man and important player in BYU's backfield.

The recent run of feel good stories by the DN makes me believe some kids on the hill are green with jealousy.

You play the WAC/MWC/CUSA, and your bowl game is a third tier event that doesn't even pay you enough to take your band... nothing more really needs to be said.

Great young man.

I have ment Mr. Eason and he is a class act.


Great story Jeff, Eason's BYU experience is full of hope, courage and self awareness. This inspirational story was a fun Christmas morning read.



Really, you got up this Christmas morning and the first thought of the day was a negative stab at some one who has turned his life story into nothing but success.

Obviously a glass half empty out look.

Woderful story about what sports is supposed to be about; winning in life!

What a great story. I loved reading this this morning. Merry Christmas all, even Howard S.

I just love it when these atheletes come to BYU and have sucess. I'm inspired by Corby, wish him continued sucess in life and thank him for being the kind of person he is.
Guess what, Howard S, I am inspired by any player that rises to the top even if they go to The U, and the DN does stories about their atheletes, too. Too bad you missed the point. Oh well Merry Christmas to you, Howard. Take off the Bah Humbug glasses.

The point of this uplifting story has little to do with conference affiliations. It has to do with a journey of faith and personal redemption. You are partially right, "Nothing more really needs to be said." I hope you will follow your own advice.

Dear Howard S.,
Thank you on this Christmas Day for reminding us of a fundamental difference between Utah and BYU emphases, e.g football conference accolades that last a season versus personal development that lasts an eternity. Guard your treasures well so that moths do not corrupt. And a very Merry Christmas from we Utah grads.


Great story! This is an excellent example that there are non-LDS players that can fit in at BYU. To me, this is what the Church and BYU is all about. It is not just for lifelong members. Hopefully we will se more of this at BYU.

Grow up Howie. This is a story of a great young making important decisions that have changed his life for the better. It has nothing to do with the BYU-Utah rivalry.

Merry Christmas!

Cheer up man!


Great story my son is a player on the team and speaks highly of Corby, he has told me also what a great young man you are, glad you came to Provo, you have had a great season. Well done young man!!! Go Cougars kick some Tulsa Butt!

Wonderful story. It is great to see any young person find the right pathway for their life. Coming to BYU will open the door to many great opportunities for Eason and others. It is great to see people want to grow and improve
