Happy Squally Canada/Phillip Amone/Hiva Lee Day: 22 Days to Kickoff!

The 2017 Countdown to Kickoff continues with 22 days until BYU’s season opener against the Portland State Vikings. 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 2017 roster.
