I'm not sure but it looks like you forgot Robbie Lusk AGAIN ; ) After leading
the State in tackles and receiving many honors (Region MVP etc), he turned down
several offers and a scholarship to Boise State to go on a mission. Boise was

spot, and after his mission BYU expressed no interest. He lost weight etc. He is
now at Utah with his best friend and former teammate, Jake Murphy. He's gaining

setting a great example!!!

Time to turn Provo into Rexburg and let these young men serve in a more
