A 22 year old Freshman?
I think Badger will have a big impact in 2014. He seems to be the heir apparent
for Sorensen. The front seven may not be quite as good next year after loosing
KVN, Hadley, Eathyn and Unga but the DBs should be significant improved over
They will re-load
Does anyone know (including Chris) if Badger is a descendant of Rodney Badger,
the first lawman to die in the line of duty in Utah?He drowned in
about 1857 and is on the law enforcement memorial in Salt Lake City.Just curious - I'm a descendant but my last name is not Badger.
Historical note: Chris is a direct descendant of Rodney Badger. Chris'
father is Rodney S Badger, his grandfather was Sidney V Badger, his great
grandfather Jesse T Badger, great great grandfather Rodney C Badger, and triple
great Rodney Badger. Rodney Badger entered SL valley on July 21, 1847, 3 days
ahead of Brigham Young, in a small scouting party. In 1853, as a Salt Lake
County Deputy Sheriff, he became the first Utah law enforcement officer to die
in the line of duty. Assisting a wagon train, bound for California, fording the
Weber River in Henefer, he drowned after rescuing two children who fell in to
the river, while trying to save a third. Was awarded a Medal of Honor and his
name is on the memorial wall in Wash DC honoring police officers who died while
in service. In addition, there is a statue of Rodney Badger on the west portico
of the State Capitol.
Badger1:If you are Chris' father, would you mind if I phoned
you? We are distant relatives and have a common interest in BYU football!
@ Badger1 Thanks for the historical note.
Committed to Stanford, then to Notre Dame, and then leaves there for BYU?
I'm not sure what to think about this....
Esquire, whats there to think about? Have you ever committed to a job and then
left for another job and then left for another job? Not that complicated.
@ Sports, not sure it's the same thing, but perhaps relative morality is at
play with your comment. I won't say more on the athlete.
For the person questioning his age for a Freshman. He served two years on a
mission, came to NF for a year and now transferred. Common for BYU to have
freshman older.Have to admire the young man and can see why he
wanted to go to BYU in the long run.
