"Wynn had grown his hair long over the past year to make a donation to "Locks of Love" on behalf of his grandmother, who passed away in May of 2011. The nonprofit organization accepts hair donations to provide hairpieces for financially disadvantaged children who suffer from long-term medical hair loss." -- DN


Bravo Wynn!! What a great cause!

BYU fans making snide comments about his "Locks of Love" last year, please stand up.


That is really cool! Wynn is a really great guy. I've never heard of any BYU players doing anything like this.

Jenny, are you sitting down?

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but acts of kindness are not limited to just donations of hair but you already knew that didn't you?

And why would you care if a BYU player donated hair? Is donating hair so over the top of other 'common' acts of kindness?

Classy comment

Actually, Wynn donating his hair to locks of love is not new news... the story came out last year when he was sporting long hair. What is news is that he actually completed his "project". It is nice to read about people helping others.

I don't think that they can. I believe it is against the honor code to grow your hair out that long.

While Jenny was wrong to make a comment about Y players not doing anything, for Sammy to call someones comments classy is very hypocritical. Pot, meet kettle.

Anyone that does anything for a cood cause should be commended. If it be a UTE or a Coug. I am sure that there are plenty of players on both sides of the fence that do nice things for others and for a good cause.

And I doubt you "have ever done anything like this" either now have you?

Congratulations on living up to the utah "fan" reputation.

Congratulations on living up to the utah "fan" reputation.

And to you as well troll, for living down to yours.

Glad you're giving sammy some love though, he was having some serious angst when you didn't give him the affirmation he was so frantically seeking from his mentor.

You bet I will call out a comment of such 'classiness'. To suggest that BYU players do not participate in charitable service is a pretty lame accusation.

As you said and I agree, it is commendable to recognize any service, never to ridicule it or make light of it.

Calling me out on my comment when we all know you would never call out one of your own is pretty hypocritical isn't it?

sammy, three days after Brian Blechen's suspension Facer wrote an article about Utah players who performed well during the first day of practice. You were the first to post on the article and wrote the following....

Missing from this report was any mention of Blechen. Wonder why?

Given your track record, it's interesting that you would call out others for making "classy" comments
