Happy Aleva Hifo/D’Angelo Gunter Day: 15 Days to Kickoff!

The 2017 Countdown to Kickoff continues with 15 days 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. Since we missed D’Angelo Gunter earlier in the countdown (Gunter will wear #33 this season), we’ll honor him today as well.
