    Thanks for the great article, and for giving volleyball the love.

    We have absolutely loved following the Cougar volleyball teams on BYUtv these last couple of seasons, and it has been great seeing DY coming on so strong late this season. His serve has been the difference in a couple of matches, especially at the Field House against UC Santa Barbara during the regular season.

    Sure hope they bring it tomorrow against the Cardinal. That's the real national championship match this year.

    Devin Young is a young man others,especially youth can look at to emulate. He served in one of the Huntington Beach YSA Wards as a missionary and I knew then that he was a very special and unique individual. His love, dedication and hard work ethic were present on that mission. His service was a blessing to many and is a testament to his integrity. It has been a blessing in my life to have served with him and to watch as he has grown in his volleyball success and as a father and husband. He will succeed in whatever he does. Volleyball success has been the tip of the iceberg for this giant of a man. Thanks Devin for being a man worth emulating.

    Devin Young is really a good player. The fact he couldn't even make the team in his early years is a testament to his work ethic and tremendous improvement. Being named to the All-Mpsf Tournament team is no fluke. He is a key contributor to the success of this team.

    Thank you for this great behind-the-scenes story. I love BYU volleyball and wish them the very best as they head for the semi-finals in Chicago May 1st against play-again rival Stanford. You're beat them three times this season. Finish it out and get to the finals Saturday night.

    Go Cougars!
