Brigham Young Cougars quarterback Taysom Hill (4) runs for yardage against Hawaii in Provo Friday, Sept. 28, 2012.

PROVO -- BYU starts its spring practice session this week -- earlier than just about every other program around the country. The session provides a chance for coaches to establish depth, get a look at players competing for spots while offensive coaches look to establish a new system and culture among the players.

Slide one: Taysom Hill, 6-foot-2, quarterback.
