    Mindgames - sorry, I missed the reference. I read that article too, rather rediculous conclusion.

    I was just referencing an article by Doug Robinson talking about BYU basketball not recruiting foreign players and how Utah County dominates the recruiting efforts. As I see it Utah County is a great recruiting area and must be taken advantage of.
    I am grateful that Aidan is willing to take his talents to BYU.

    Mindgames,

    As a former cross country runner at Timpview, you basically run past BYU everyday. Do you suggest blinders?

    I'm not sure that I get your comment. Good school, 88% of those accepted to both BYU and Utah choose it, great if you are LDS also. Congrats to Aidan.

    BYU is very, very fortunate to get Aidan Troutner. He could have gone to almost any school in the nation. He is a very humble, personable, centered kid who has his head screwed on straight. . . yet fiercely competitive. The world needs more Aidan Troutners for sure.

    Wait...another Utah County athlete?
    Well maybe this last one, but the pipeline needs to end here.

    Congratulations to Aiden! He reportedly said, "I didn’t qualify for NXN last year by one spot,” Troutner said. "Every single day this summer, I had that in the back of my mind. Keep pushing so I could get here." Motivation such as this surely is a key to obtaining any goal. Adversity and challenge seem to be essential to success. Hope Aiden can help the Y team reach the NCAA NXN Championship in the near future.
