I think he's making the right choice as long as he doesn't drop
drastically in the first round and is sitting in the green room for 3-4 hours.
Graduation ceremonies are overrated.
I graduated twice from BYU and didn't walk either time. I don't think
I missed anything, either. They don't even give you your diploma until
weeks after the graduation. He can do more for BYU by being at the NFL Draft so
that football fans everywhere can see the better face of their sport--a truly
outstanding student-athlete who is good at both student and athlete.
Ziggy is definitely doing the right things for the right reasons. First, he has
surrounded hmself with good friends and he has been thoughtful enough to listen
to their counsel as well as his coaches.I am impressed wtih Ziggy.
He is defnitely the real deal. My only hope is that the NFL and the money that
goes with it does not go to his head.I hope that he will stay
grounded in his faith and will continue to be a great example for other athletes
who follow in his footsteps.All the luck to him and the rest of his
buddies for Pro Day at BYU!
Enjoy, Ziggy! I believe the NFL Draft only comes once in a lifetime. Good that
the school is arranging for him to do both. Great story to a great young man.
It'll be exciting to following his NFL career.
There seems to be real innocence with Ansah, almost naievity. He is obviously a
really good kid who is about to ener the ranks of fame and fortune. I am
excited for him, but I sure hope he is hooked up with an honorable agent who
will truly look out for Ziggy's best interests during this transition.
So I don't know about the rest of you, but walking at graduation was one of
those anti-climactic things that I just had to do because... I just had to do
it.Now being there (NYC) if indeed your name is called in the first
round, maybe even in the top five? Being present when it is announced to the
entire UNIVERSE which professional organization values you so highly they will
make you an instant millionaire?Shoot, I don't even watch
Sunday football, but I'm getting excited for him.
It's so refreshing to read about a rising star athlete who is not stuck on
himself... Ziggy has brought humility and respect back to athletic stardom.
This is such a great story. Wishing Ziggy all the luck in the world.
But I should mention my support for Ziggy! Great story an opportunity for the
Go Ziggy! What a ride.Go Cougars!
