Well done Tyler. Good luck with the basketball career.

Class Act.

South Jordan, UT

We're looking forward to seeing you play again soon. You were a pure delight on the Cougar basketball team! Work hard. We need your talent on and off the floor. You're a great role model for all young men who aspire to go on a mission!

Go Cougars!


The Haws family = class act. Welcome back Tyler ...now get to work:):)

Cardston, Alberta

REALLY glad Elder Haws is back with plenty of time to work on getting back in shape. Mission "legs and lungs" should be back in shape for the 2012-2013 season. Can't wait!! Go Cougs.


"Well done, thou good and faithful servant." Don't think any of us realize the import of example when it comes to solid players opting to labor for two years. For that matter anyone who chooses to "lace it up" in regions near and far. My experience in Bolivia was tremendous, and I balled every single p-day without fail. We even put together a team of missionaries that played against a pro team in La Paz, which was very cool. Resulted in a lot of referrals and opportunity.

Haws, Chatman, Emery, Haws, etc., etc., etc. Pretty exciting future for Cougar b-ball. Best to Coach Rose and the team going forward!

Hyrum, UT

In a similar way to how the football program is now stacked with very high quality quarterbacks for years to come, coach Rose has done a tremendous job with his recruiting and has the team stacked with high quality players for years to come. It is shown in the results he's obtained. And records don't lie. It makes it extra exciting to anticipate the ongoing quality of the program that just keeps getting better and better.
It's also interesting to see how many genuinely great recruits are coming from families where the dad also played well at BYU. Keeping it in the family is a fun tradition to maintain.

Temecula, CA

Hmmm, the Philippines a untapped well of basketball talent. Though most of their players are under 6 ft. they are fast, quick, and have good hands and play pretty competitive ball. I think BYU is missing an opportunity! They can play with the best players from the larger cities like Chicago. First hand experience says that! BYU can take advantage of the talent in the PH and BYU has a great reputation there. What an opportunity.

@ JoeCoug

Chances are I was one of your hoop teammates. I was a ZL in the Altiplano when that game went down...decades ago. Nothing like playing basketball at 10,000 ft. Laramie has nothing on La Paz.

Best wishes to Tyler as he makes the transition back. I enjoyed his play as a freshman. He had a calmness and maturity, even then, beyond other players. I watched his younger brother and Jackson's younger brother dismantle a very good team in my WJ Jags.

To paraphrase Chris B. ... the future of basketball in Utah is BYU (also the present and the recent past). Go Cougs!
