I love the picture of him and his beautiful trademark smile.
Ty's commitment to excellence, his energy, enthusiasm, lit up the Y as he
led the football team and won the Heisman. His ability to sort out, prioritize,
keep proper life perspective is a credit to him and his parents for sure. He is
the kind of man everyone would like as a teammate, a neighbor, a friend.
Everyone has a story and it is always interesting to hear them. Best wishes to
Ty and his family!
Super story! I sure wish someone would add new volumes to the book "No More
Grateful to read an article about things that really matter. Ty has always been
a class act, and focused on things most important. What a privilege it was to
get to know him up in Orem during a couple years prior to him gaining nationwide
attention. While he has a great football mind, he has a greater understanding
of people ... again, things most important.
How can anybody not like Ty? He is like a Winnie the Poo, and had an
assassin's arm. He is one of a kind. He is also a football wizard and will
surprise opponents for years to come, with his vast knowledge of the game.
I'm looking forward to the future of BYU football.
Is that how you get a member of the twelve to officiate your wedding...win the
always a fan of his, always will be, class act!
We loved watching Ty Detmer play football for BYU. We attended many games. We
have wanted him back ever since. Good luck this coming season. You are an
inspiration to everyone with whom you have contact!
Great read. Interesting that the issue of the Church didn't come up as he
talk about the Y with his parents. Welcome back Ty. Hope
you're time in Provo is a great experience for you and your family.
THanks, Des News, for reporting the story the way you did. Hearing the summary
of his testimony would have given other "secular" reporters and papers
hives.It is so great to have Ty "back home" in Provo
Good job Ty! We are so glad you are at BYU.Help these cougar fans
to have a desire to represent themselves well. LIke you said, there are more
important things going on.
Awesome conversion story. What an down to earth person he is. And one bonus from
this story is that I now can tell my wife of 25 years that I know someone famous
who has a less romantic proposal story than ours.
