Happy Fred Warner/Trey Dye/Bentley Hanshaw Day: 4 Days to Kickoff!

The 2017 Countdown to Kickoff continues with 4 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 Bentley Hanshaw on day #86, we’ll honor him today as well with the number he wore as a WR in high school.

Happy Fred Warner/Trey Dye/Bentley Hanshaw Day!
