Just the kind of "walk-on" every coach dreams about.Great
inspiring story.Go Cougars!
Kudos, Elder Vea. With attitude and work ethic, you have succeeded at football,
and made your brothers better. And more importantly these same traits will help
you succeed in the more important arenas of life. Warriors like Simonte are
what make BYU sports for me. Go Cougars!
In a day of entitlement attitudes, Vea is a breath of fresh air. Not everyone
can be a superstar but, everyone can contribute. I hope a lot of people read
this article. We need more examples of this!
Great story! Let's have some more of these. Maybe if more of the other teams
fans read more of these they will come to love BYU...OK, maybe they will just
not hate BYU as much.
He probably could run under the arms of the 6' 7" offensive lineman and
take down the QB or runner.
What a find! If BYU gets any better recruits, its going to have to go straight
to the NFL.
Very positive comments. This is great, and I love hearing great player success
stories.Something concerned me as I read between the lines of this
article, and that is it seems as though there may be 4-5 prima donna's who dont
work hard enough and Vea has to motivate by threat of taking their spots. When
a second or third string player is "standing out" due to their work
ethic, it can mean that he isn't blending because the others aren't working hard
enough. We will know in a few hours if we are getting off the ball against
Mississippi's offensive line.
