    I've known a number of young men over the years who have gone into professional sports and been beset by people who sought to use them for personal gain. The consistent factor in each case has been that they are never trained enough in financial management or economics to be able to recognize or plot a wise course for themselves. I've often thought that some specific money management skills should be part of any scholarship athlete's curriculum.

    From the other columns I've read Ziggy has his head on straight. It's those who would take advantage of his humility that are the sick ones. It's reassuring to hear that he is getting some good advice. We've all heard about young inexperienced athletes who are taken advantage of, who were robbed blind, and had their talent damaged by poor suggestions given by devious people.

    It's been an honor to watch Ziggy play at BYU. He's brought honor to the Church, School and himself. We fans need to return the honor any way we can.

    I agree with proud Ute 100%. Great story for a great young man.

    I hope he has much success in the NFL, gets good advisors, and continues to keep his head on straight.

    I'm very happy for this young man, this is the type of success story everybody wants to read and hear about.
    Just hope he can connect with the right combination of advisors that always act in his best interest.
