What role will BYU tight ends play in 2014?

Posted Aug 6th - 8:00am by Jason Shepherd

PROVO — While BYU football is known for its rich quarterback traditions, it’s not the only position where the Cougars have turned out some great athletes. With names like Pitta, Harline, George, Lewis, Mili, Hudson and Brown, the tight end position has proven to be a productive and beneficial part of the BYU offense.

Camp Cougar, Day 4

Posted Aug 5th - 6:00pm by Greg Wrubell

One day after a closed session that head coach Bronco Mendenhall said "might have been one of the most difficult and intense practices that we've ever had," the coach eased off the gas somewhat on Tuesday, cutting a little short his team's morning session on day four of camp.

Upwards of two dozen players were either absent or limited to non-contact/conditioning work, but Mendenhall said the early-camp attrition level has been par for the course.

"Today was thin, but man, we've gone really hard, " said Mendenhall. "Even though it's (only) day four, guys are working hard, and so I felt that I could cut it short because of that."

Camp Cougar, Day 2

Posted Aug 2nd - 3:27pm by Greg Wrubell

BYU fans were welcomed to an open practice on the second day of training camp Saturday, and the hundreds who turned out had to leave impressed with a passing game that again stood out for its big-play potential.

Backup quarterback Christian Stewart got a lot of work in the two-hour session, connecting on deep scoring strikes with Mitch Mathews, Nick Kurtz (twice) and Mitchell Juergens. Taysom Hill found Jordan Leslie for a long TD late in the closing segment of practice. Devon Blackmon also turned a long catch into a score.

Particularly impressive non-scoring catches were turned in by Blackmon and Nick Ziolkowski; Blackmon snared a one-handed reception on the sideline midway through practice, while Ziolkowski went horizontal on an out-pattern early in the day. Stanford transfer Keanu Nelson also stood out with a fine individual effort to record one of the nicer catches of the day.

Camp Cougar, Day 1

Posted Aug 1st - 8:32pm by Greg Wrubell

PROVO — The opening day of BYU training camp saw starting running back Jamaal Williams unusually relegated to the second-string.

After a two-hour, late-afternoon practice in the scorching heat, Williams explained that the demotion was part of a punishment that will include suspension for the season opener at Connecticut.

Williams acknowledged violation of the school's honor code, and without getting into details, said that a "combination" of events led to the discipline--punishment that head coach Bronco Mendenhall did not intend to announce.

'Camp Cougar' Questions: 15 points to ponder

Posted Jul 31st - 6:24am by Greg Wrubell

On the eve of the start of BYU Football's annual August training camp, I've identified 15 questions that could be answered in the coming four weeks.

No particular attempt has been made to strictly prioritize the issues addressed, but the order of the questions is less important than the questions themselves, and their value relative to one another could be debated.
