Happy Moroni Laulu-Pututau/Akile Davis/Keenan Pili Day: 1 Day to Kickoff!

The 2016 Countdown to Kickoff continues with only 1 more day 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. Keenan Pili will wear #44 this season, but we haven’t honored him yet on the countdown, so we’ll do so today.

Happy Moroni Laulu-Pututau/Akile Davis/Keenan Pili Day!
