He will be a really fun and cool player to cheer for. I am so ready for BYU
Cougars football to start. I will cheer the loudest of anyone in the stadium!!
I really think one of those Rugby plays should be the drop kick. It would be
almost certain to make the highlight reel!
A cool story about an athlete that wants to play competitive college sports. I
admire him and wish nothing but the best for this kid. I think it's pretty
cool that they have designed plays specifically for him. Good move Cougs.
Mister J"Does the name Thretton Palamo mean anything, Cougar
nation?"Why would a former rugby player who made 2 solo tackles
in mop-up action for Utah last year mean anything to Cougar nation?Did Palamo play for a national champion rugby team?
"set to" make an impact; and "looks to" make an impactIsn't there a better way to phrase the athlete's intentions or
potential? Both phrases are way overused in the Deseret News' sports
online headlines. How about Rugby All-American Paul Lasike (hopes to
make/has all the tools to make/is prepared to make/could make/is focused on
making) an impact in football
BYU Alumnus Living in TN - we're off to see Opening Day at the U of VA (a
stone's throw from Jefferson's Monticello) - Go Cougs!
Mr. J,No, the name Thretton Palamo means nothing to us. Should it? And for
a running back to leave an impact on defenses' facemasks, that act does not
incur a penalty. Never has and never will.
Re: Mister JEver heard of smash mouth football? That's what I
was referring to, not illegal helmet to helmet contact. Go Cougs!
I'm excited to have a running game that does not have the QB draw as the
number play. I look forward to a sophisticated game plan instead of the
previous Anae game plan where there were essentially four plays, each with a
unique way to line up so it was 100% predictable. I'm also excited to see
these players bring their best on every down instead of the cockiness that was
not coupled with intensity of execution. This could be a great year if the
Cougars keep injuries to a minimum. The offensive line has to be precise and
expert. The defense must be fierce. Bring on a great year! One more week of
waiting and we'll know what we have.

Cougar ClawsThat, my friend, is a 15 yd penalty.
Hopefully he will continue to make an impact, on opponents face masks!Can't wait for the opener!Go Cougs!
I've known Paul since 2008. He is a great young man. Very hard working
and very humble. He is also very athletic and very fast. Paul will do great
things this year for the football team. August 31st cannot come
soon enough! Go Cougars!
Yet another stud offensive player. Has a bit of Unga in him it seems. This
offense has no excuse to not be good, led by their consistent offensive coach
who regularly had BYU in the top 25 and winning conference championships!
