Here’s the second installment of Q&A’s with players on the team. We’ll continue working our way down the roster throughout the season.
No. 2 Spencer Hadley, Jr., LB, Connell, WA
Q: What is the most interesting thing about you?
A: My mustache and my nunchucks. The two of them together is equivalent to Chuck Norris.
Q: What’s your favorite road trip that you’ve been on with the team?
Q: When did you start playing football and why?
A: I started playing football in the fifth grade because I was afraid as a child that I would die before I’d ever get to play in my first football game. I’ve always loved football and I’ve always wanted to play and I literally, when I was little, I was scared that I would die before I ever got to play.
Q: What does it mean to you to be playing for a college football team?
A: Especially to play here, it’s really meant a lot. Ever since I was little, I’ve wanted to play football but I also wanted to play at BYU. When I was five years old I got one of those plastic shoulder pad and helmet sets with the jersey. I got a BYU football pad set and literally wore that thing everywhere. I’ve always wanted to play here so it’s been a pretty neat experience and a good blessing in my life.
Q: If you could have any talent, what would it be?
A: I would sing my little heart out like Josh Groban. He’s my favorite. I’m not good at singing but I wish I was. I only sing to myself and to my steering wheel.

Q: What is one of your favorite things about your position coach?
A: It’s cool that coach Cahoon has a great professional background with playing football.
Q: If you had to play a different position, what would it be?
