Harvey, your old 7th grade science teacher still believes in you! I can't wait for the day when I see you on the field in the NFL. Maybe one day your team will go up against Matt's team. That will be a proud day for us at CMS!

Congrats on being a Dad! It is the best job of all!

Best wishes to you, Harvey! You will be the ONLY reason I cheer for the Bears.

Go Big Blue!!!

I'm glad to see that Harvey valued his education enough to come back and graduate from BYU. That's important and setting a great example for others. I'm glad that Harvey is growing and working on the right values in his life and the life of his family.

I was happy to see Harvey go, and miss his senior year. His presence alone would have made a world of difference for Heaps and Nelson. Now that he is gone, I wish him well, and hopefully he can make it with the Bears or another team. Family does come first before anything. It's nice to see a player take a year off to go be with his young family, to then go back and try to make it again in football once things have settled down. Good luck Harvey.

I am a big Utah fan but I have always had respect for Mr. Unga. He is a class act and a great role model to our youth.

Best of luck to you Mr.Unga. I'll be cheering for you.

Good luck Harvey. You were an awesome player in college and can succeed in the NFL. I loved watching you play. Go Utes!

What a great guy Harvey is! Here is a great example of Bronco's "football 5th" mentality. It was important for him to take a break from the NFL(!!) for his family and his schooling. Harvey is a total class act in my mind. It may not have been Bronco/BYU who instilled this in Harvey, but it exemplifies what type of athletes/people BYU wants to produce. I think its great. Harvey, you are awesome!!


Harvey has sex with his girlfriend at BYU and you think he's a role model?

Yes Jenny83, that is what repentance is all about. Harvey could have attempted to cover up his mistake but he did the right thing. Now you may think that he had no choice because pregnancy is pretty obvious but he came forward. He taught young people that long-term pre-marital relationships can lead to big mistakes and consequences. I used Harvey's story to counsel a returned-missionary son and his girlfriend to illustrate the value of Church leaders' counsel.


Good luck, Harvey.


Jenny, let go of the hate, it makes you ugly. Forgiveness is a beautiful thing, is a gift to all who repent. Harvey has moved on, you should too.

We all make mistakes. He paid for his mistakes. Good job Harvey. Good luck.
