Keep them coming Dick Harmon,We Cougar fans always learn something
new with your articles. And that is what sets you apart from the other
TilkaPORTLAND, ORReminds me of a memory near and dear to every
BYU fan: 4th and 18. How DID Austin Collie get so wide open so far down field?
Probably good info for our opponents that Skylar won't be going for the
long plays, just the short stuff where he can get them turned around, based on
the fakes he will be making for a long pass play.
Great article. I've known Skyler since he was very young, watched him
play throughout his high school and college career. He never had it easy since
he doesn't have great size or blazing speed but like this article says, he
always worked hard and did his best and you can't ask for anything more.
It's so great to see him getting playing time and earning a scholarship
after all those years on the scout team. Here's to a great senior year and
best wishes to Ethel and the rest of the family!
My best to Ethel
Good article. I have enjoyed getting to see inside the lives of some of
BYU's athletes. Being a student-athlete at this level takes a tremendous
amount of dedication and perseverance and sometimes as fans we only see the
on-field results and think that is the entire package, but these young people
are much more than that and the athletic part of their lives can be seen and
measured, but the totality of each of them is far greater than that. On every
campus there are far more of these stories than the "newsworthy" garbage
that makes headlines.Congratulations to Skyler and all the other
young athletes who make college sports so enjoyable for the rest of us.GO COUGAES!!!
Evidently the offense is working because the db's are dropping like flies
but the receivers are not. Hmmm...need to look at that.
I've always admired the guys who succeed through grit and hard work.
Reading about this team and the effort put in the assimilate this new offense in
such a short time has me really excited to see how it works out. I think this
team will surprise a lot of people.A Mendenhall defense is always
tough, and Anae's offense was always good. And it seems like BYU is finally
getting the athletes.Looking forward to an exceptional year against
a quality schedule.
WayneJake would miss the target today like he did 2 and 3 years ago.
Move on please.About the article...Great story! There is
no doubt that Ridley will have continued success on and off the field.
Ah, Wayne, good to here from you! Your comment lends a little depth and
perception to the person we all came to know last year.I don't
think Tayson is Riley II, and the last time Jake threw the ball in a game
situation, he wasn't very impressive. But I'll go with
you this far: too bad he doesn't have someone throwing to him with
Jake's potential. But I still think Taysome will pleasantly surprise. You
have both a receiver and a quarterback who both are willing to pay the price.
Lets enjoy watching and seeing if they can actually deliver the goods. I'm
thinkin' they can.
Well written, great player, good character. We can be proud of him and wish
him well. Too bad he does not have Jake to throw to him.
Sounds like Ben Cahoon as a player....May he have the same success, Go Cougars
Well done, Dick! Thanks for your detailed research and presentation for us
Nice article. It's good to hear about a young man with a good work ethic.
It's always good to hear about class acts, no matter what team they play
for. Go Cougars!
