Life-Changing Stories from BYU Athletics
Talo Kauvaka Steves, Matt Hodge
Most die-hard BYU Cougar fans attribute their love of the program to more than just wins and losses. BYU teams and athletes are unique because of the standards required to wear a Cougar uniform and the faith that they represent.
Written by authors with over 25 years of combined experience covering BYU sports, this book tells the stories of nine Cougar sports greats who came to BYU as non-members of the LDS faith. Each young man excelled as an athlete in his own right, but gained far more than just an athletic career and a degree while in Provo.
Read the conversion stories of BYU greats Ty Detmer, Curtis Brown, Scott Collie, Sete Aulai, Tom Holmoe, Corby Eason, Kresimir Cosic, Robbie Bosco and Shaun Nua, as told in their own words.
