Ammon got to go to BYU Thursday's Heroes Reunion tonight. It was blazing hot but we had a great time anyway.
Coach Mendenhall knew who Ammon was as soon as he saw him.
Ammon's explaining how he broke his arm. He told Coach Mendenhall, "Sunday night I hurt and I cried." The coach said, "It's ok to cry. I cry sometimes - even at BYU."
One very happy camper.
Kyle VanNoy - a really great player.
Player in the hat is the quarterback, Riley Nelson.
Like always, this is a wonderful event. We sat at the table with a young woman with three beautiful little children. Her husband was a Thursday Hero last September. He had cancer. Two days after he was inducted, he went into the hospital where they told him he didn't have much longer to live. He lived until last May. She will always be invited to be part of this group. It's very touching to see how some of the players really connect with the kids. Some do not but many of the biggest, toughest guys are softies at heart - you can just tell.
