I got a chance to sit down with Ian Dulan, a senior defensive lineman from Hilo, Hawai'i. We discussed his plans for the offseason and getting married.

"Right now I'm just training and working at the Marriott, so it's been good, it's been long and hard, but it's been worth it. I hope to go home this summer. I normally go home to Hawaii once a year, usually during the summer and once for Christmas."

Last year, Dulan redshirted and participated on the scout team after getting back from an LDS mission to Illinois. He said he's excited to get back on the field this year and accomplish some personal goals.

"As a defense, we want to be in the top 10 nationally. Personally, I'd like to get a sack a game. That's a goal I have right now."

He also spent some time this summer away from football.

"I got married, went on a honeymoon and went to Disneyland. Being married is awesome. It's been fun, it has its ups and downs but when you grow together, you can't compare anything else in this world to it."

Like many couples at BYU, Dulan and his wife met here in Provo.

"I met my wife at church. I came back from my mission a couple months earlier, so I was kinda nervous to talk to girls, but I got the courage to introduce myself and get her number. The rest is history."
