'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.

BYU running back Jamaal Williams was on Thursday named as one of 53 nominees for the Doak Walker Award, presented annually to the nation's premier running back.

BYU QB Hill on Davey O'Brien Award watch list

Posted Jul 16th - 9:58am by Greg Wrubell

A week after attending the prestigious Manning Passing Academy as a counselor and competitor, BYU quarterback Taysom Hill on Wednesday added another stamp to his expanding preseason portfolio with a nomination for the Davey O'Brien Award.


Given annually to the nation's best quarterback, the Davey O'Brien Award has been won four times by BYU signal-callers, most recently by Ty Detmer, who captured the award in 1991. Detmer also won the honor in 1990; other BYU winners were Jim McMahon in 1981 and Steve Young in 1983. No other school can claim more than BYU's four winners of the Davey O' Brien Award.

3 more Cougars named to preseason award watch lists

Posted Jul 10th - 10:05am by Jason Shepherd

PROVO — BYU linebacker Alani Fua and safety Craig Bills were both named to the 2014 Bronko Nagurski Preseason Watch List on Thursday. The Bronko Nagurski Award is given to the most outstanding defensive player in college football.

Fua, who is also on the watch list for the CFPA Linebacker Trophy, enters his senior season with 5.0 career-sacks, 82 tackles (63 in 2013) and three interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown. The 6-foot 5-inch, 228-pound Fua has been a durable player for BYU, playing in 34 out of a possible 39 games while in Provo.

The 6-foot 1-inch Bills is coming off an impressive junior season which included 78 tackles and two interceptions. In 2014, the senior from Provo is expected to be one of the anchors of a very deep and talented secondary.
