I've been a huge Ty Detmer fan ever since he arrived at BYU twenty-something years ago. I was at the fireside in Salem that Mr. Harmon mentioned. Dustin, Shad and Ty spoke - their message is powerful and one I hope every athlete could hear.

What impressed me most was that Ty not only stayed long after the fireside was over to sign autographs for all who wanted one but he stayed even longer to throw the ball to kids in the gym. Ty walks the talk on every level - if only all who had some level of fame would adopt this same attitude...

Someone once said that a role model is not a person,it's a behavior. Ty Detmer is a great role model, and what a world it would be if we had more of them.

I have a picture of Ty with my son at the Texas game. He was very gracious and it's obvious he's very happy in his world. He is the best, and we wish him the best!

Ty is a class act and a greqt ambassador or his sport, school, and Church.

I still remember the Miami game in Provo. Detmer was incredible. What a great night in Utah sports.
