Happy David Kessler/Akile Davis Day: 83 Days to Kickoff!

The 2015 Countdown to Kickoff continues with 83 days until the Nebraska game. Each day we highlight the player or two that wear that day’s number on their jerseys. If you check back with us each day, by the end of the summer you’ll know every player on BYU’s roster in 2015. Aside from the current #83 on the roster (David Kessler), we also celebrate incoming freshman receiver Akile Davis.
