Thursday's Hero Reunion, 2011 - warning -- lots of pictures!

Tonight was BYU Football Thursday's Hero reunion again. They asked that we just invited immediate family. Well, that's about 40 people so we decided to take a different family every year. Brent and Chelsey have never been able to participate in football camp, the reunions or when Ammon was honored the first time. They were able to make it down but missed quite a few of the players who had already left. Nevertheless, we had fun and we're glad they were able to join us.
These are just various photos showing players, coaches and kids.
This is a pretty good looking player -- does basketball have players this handsome? I don't think so - and never baseball!
This was the second group of players and one coach that sat with us.
Coach Tidwell - he remembered us from last year. He knew Paul Clark as a coach. While Paul was coaching, this man was the head football coach at Snow College.
The Pughs arriving - Kaitlin showing there where to come into the field.
Sarah and Geoff getting some of the players to sign their shirts.
Jim giving a pep talk to the kids to convince them they really could get Coach Mendenhall to sign their shirts.
I think Jim told Sarah he would buy her shirt if she got Coach Mendenhall to sign the shirt. She got it but she didn't sell.
This guy's name is Romney - watch for him this year.

I have no idea what they do with these footballs that are hanging on a cross bar but I thought it was interesting.
Every year I get more enamored with the program and the goodness of the leaders and coaches. The players and the coaches all seem to be excited with their new schedule and new opportunities. It will be pretty fun to be able to watch all the games this year and to see if we can identify some of the players we met this year.

My best thing is that I get to go with Ammon. He is my wheelchair stud. The players and the coaches remember him, too. It was great!
