    Ziggy, c'mon. Fork out some money so your buddy can see you play in person. My guess is that you have a few bucks. :)

    Great personal story about a great young man.

    As a True Ute fan, I am a huge Ziggy fan. what a great role model for all people. I love to see him succeed. On the other hand, Star Lotuleilei is representing the state of Utah as well!

    GO UTES!!!

    @Chris B. Please tell us for the 999th time how you've moved on from BYU....

    But you can't leave it alone.

    I'm pretty sure I've read "mark it down" posted by you more than 1000 times by its self. And rarely at the end of an intelligent or well thought out comment.

    The only stars this kid had was one. The star on the Ghanaian flag. I think that's pretty good given how well he's getting paid. Not bad for a 1-star athlete from Africa.

    Let's all keep track of how many times the trolls read articles about anything BYU and then complain about them.

    Obsession is a strange thing. It makes people act and say crazy things that everyone but themselves and their fellow obsessed friends can clearly see.

    That same flavor of comment was neat-o, even the 999th time. Make that the 1,000th time. The irony is laughable!

    Is there any way we can get updates about how many tackles he's getting in practice as well? Also, don't forget to update us on how many threes Jimmer hits in practice too.

    This story is neat-o, even the 999th time.

    Tell us again about how he didn't know how to put his pads on. I love that one!

    Stay humble Ziggy and you'll be blessed with everything you wish for! Good luck out there in the league. Won't forget driving around campus and see you working for the grounds crew in the heat of the summer. Keep it up and don't forget the humble beginnings and you'll do great things!

    Great story of a great man. What a role model for young men back in his home and elsewhere. I wonder where he will find his wife. Stay strong in the Church, Ziggy!
