What an amazing legacy.
Thanks for the feature on the Reynolds.

In about 15 years, we should see the kids of the Reynold's boys anchoring the BYU O line.

Coming from a huge Ute fan...
Coach Reynolds and his sons are Amazing competitors but more importantly amazing people. I grew up going to high school, and playing basketball with Matt, and Houston. They are what BYU athletics should be all about. Coach Reynolds not getting the coaching job of Bronco was a mistake, they told him he had the job, and changed their minds last second. BYU is unbelievably lucky to have had Coach Reynolds and his boys stick around. Coach Reynolds and his family are the glue that hold BYU football together. I just can't be a fan of BYU athletics when a man like that is constantly overlooked. I would love more than anything to see coaches Whitt and Reynolds coaching on the same sideline some day!

I know he was Lavell's first choice to be the next coach after Crowton. I'm sure he or Norm Chow could have done a much better job than Gary Crowton. I'm glad he's still on BYU's staff and not bitter like Chow seems to be. He seems like a pretty even keel kind of guy.
Also how the heck did Matt Reynolds go undrafted? Was his senior season that bad that he fell from possibly the first round to undrafted? Seems unlikely. Did his age hurt him that much? He is running with the ones and twos in camp. I thought he had the talent to be at least a middle round draft choice. NFL teams don't seem to have any respect for BYU football at this point in time. Hopefully they can change that perception.

The plural of "Reynolds" is "Reynoldses."

I had to smile at this article because the Reynolds dynasty reminds me of the Kruger dynasty at Utah. You just can't have too many of either.
