Media Day 2011: Getting Ready for Media Day with JJ Di Luigi

In preparation for media day, senior running back JJ Di Luigi shared what he's been up to this summer.

"I'm doing some cool projects with BYU marketing right now," Di Luigi said. "One is putting together all the tailgates for the student all-sports pass holders. We'll have a tailgate for the Utah game and some different sporting events."

Di Luigi, who is use to being on the other end of marketing, said his summer experience has changed how he's going to handle things in the future.

"I answer my phone a lot more now when I see marketing numbers and communications numbers," Di Luigi said with a laugh. "Where usually I let them go to voicemail and then call them back. Now, I've experienced that and think, 'Dang, never again.' I'm going to answer all the calls."

Di Luigi is looking forward to being a part of media day, a first for him, but ultimately has his sights set on the season. 

"I'm excited to get in the studio, I've never seen it," Di Luigi said. "It's pretty sweet and really nice in the broadcast building. I'm excited about the new experience but it makes me more excited for the season. I wish we were putting on the pads tomorrow."
