Happy Talon Shumway/Hirkley Latu Day: 21 Days to Kickoff!

The 2017 Countdown to Kickoff continues with 21 days (exactly 3 weeks from today!) until BYU’s season opener against Portland State. 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. Hirkley Latu wears #98, but we’ll honor him today as well since we missed him on day 98.

Happy Talon Shumway/Hirkley Latu Day!
