The lights in LaVell Edwards Stadium were shining late into the night, Tuesday, for the football team's Date Night/Couple's Clinic. Laughs and cheers could be heard as coaches, players and fans gathered for drills, dinner, a short talent show, a comedic performance and a fun atmosphere to celebrate the start of a new BYU football season.
When the couples first arrived they received a t-shirt and nametage, and were treated to a Ruby River dinner with BYU's players and coaches. After dinner and lots of autographs, the couples laughed with Utah comedian Keith Stubbs before being entertained by junior Justin Sorenson's unicycling and juggling.
Basic football knowledge from offensive coordinator Brandon Doman and coach Nick Howell was next on the schedule as the couples gathered to hear about BYU's offense and defense this upcoming season.
To wrap up the eventful night, the couples split up into eight groups and were able to have some one-on-one time with the players. Couples learned a few techniques from players in all different positions and even had a chance to put their knowledge to the test on the field.
