Those in attendance heard spritual messages from receivers and brothers Marcus and Mitch Mathews. Marcus spoke about gaining the proper perspective on life and set the tone for the meeting. His brother Mitch spoke about battling through ups and downs and bore testimony of the Savior.
Two musical numbers were shared, one by several polynesian members of the team singing Nearer My God To Thee and another with the majority of the team singing We'll Bring the World His Truth.
Head coach Bronco Mendenhall spoke about The Book of Mormon and the power that it holds. He shared his story of how he gained a testimony and the blessings of The Book of Mormon.
President Cecil O. Samuelson was also at the fireside and gave a brief closing testimony.
Following the meeting players stayed behind to visit with members and fans who came to support them.
