Mrs. Brown, Curtis' mom, has always been awesome. When I used to spend
time on CougarBoard.com (before I got tired of all the negativity of that site),
you could find several of her insightful posts. She was always classy and fun
to talk to. She was always very supportive of Curtis' decision to come to
BYU and to join the Church.I hope one day to read about her
conversion... but if not, I know that she is a Christian woman who represents
her faith very well.
I don't know what the rest of you thought, but after reading this article I
thought 'What an awesome mom Curtis has.' This world is so much better
when there are moms like this.Great story.
I loved the story, and I would love to see a photo of him with his wife, or
maybe with his very supportive parents. The article states that his marriage is
the most important part of his BYU memories so we need something visual to go
with that. I do not mean this to be negative; I just enjoy having visuals to go
with important parts of the story.
Thanks for sharing Curtis' conversion story. I was particularly impressed
by the support of his mother and family.Uplifting indeed.
This inspiring story is about Curtis Brown's journey of faith, not about
stars by a recruiting service. If you miss that point you have been blinded.
Football is one of many means to and end, it is not the end. The person who
interviewed Brown for baptism probably didn't care how many stars he had.
Sorry for the many misspellings
@ChrisBI agree that the more stars you have the better the teams usually
are.May I point something out. This article states that BYU had 3- 5 star
recruits and 4-4 star recruits.What does this say? One apparently BYU
could get recruits when in the MWC.Many of these recruits got kicked out
or backed out due to the honor code.As a fan of all in state schools Utah
has out recruited BYU.I will say this BYU is different the honor code
makes it that way.BYU puts a very good team on the field every year with
restrictions that no other university has.Kyle Whittingham also recruits
well and players with high character, but how would Utah's recruiting
change with the honor. They may still out recruit byu but they would not get all
the players they currently get.Can you at least acknoledge this fact?
What is all this stars talk? The article is not about this. Please find an
article on artichokes to comment on. At least then I wouldn't have to read
Great story. Thanks for sharing. Curtis needs to convert 4th down and 4 more
yards to go. Metaphorically speaking he's got four more members of his
family to convert. Then on to 1st and 10 more to follow.
Thank you for the wonderful story. I just finished listening to an anti-Mormon
clip by a former Mormon who goes through the usual diatribe, some of which is
easily proved wrong and some of which would take time to study thoroughly. My
faith is based on spiritual experiences as well as study as I enjoy thoroughly
researching the sort of questions that might bother others for years. I've
consistently strengthened my testimony by doing this because I am searching for
reasons to believe, not as a weak or wavering member looking for reasons to
disbelieve. When I eventually line up all the facts, it's easy to see
God's hand in the restoration of the Gospel. And yet I go out of my way to
read uplifting stories of others who came to their faith through positive
experiences. As Curtis continues in his quest to be the best man he can become,
he can be assured that he will have many experiences that will give him
undeniable spiritual confirmations that he has chosen the right path.
Even though this story is about a football player, it isn't a story about
football. It's a shame that people have to come her with an agenda and try
to ruin an excellent story about a young man's life and the decisions
Searched the entire article and the phrase "stars don't mean
anything" is not there. So, the only one saying "stars don't mean
anything" is Utah Fan. BTW this is an article about Curtis Brown's
introduction to and acceptance of the LDS Faith and though you are far from an
expert on that subject, please stay on topic Utah Fan.
I'd like to know more about all world Walt Williams and where he ended up.
