Happy Michael Shelton/Elliot Knox/Josh Weeks Day: 18 Days to Kickoff!

The 2015 Countdown to Kickoff continues with 18 days until BYU’s season opener. 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. Elliot Knox is among the walk-on players expected to re-join the team when classes begin on August 31.

Happy Michael Shelton/Elliot Knox/Josh Weeks Day!
