Happy Trey Dye/Alema Pilimai Day: 6 Days to Kickoff!

The 2016 Countdown to Kickoff continues with 6 days until BYU’s season opener in Arizona. Each day we highlight the player or two that wear that day’s number on their jerseys. If you check back each day, by the end of the summer you’ll know every player on BYU’s 2016 roster. We’ll celebrate #45 Alema Pilimai today as well, since he has not yet been honored in the countdown.

Happy Trey Dye/Alema Pilimai Day!
