No. 4 Uona Kaveinga, Sr., LB, Hawthorne, CA

Q: What’s something you like about BYU?
A: I love the dudes around here. I have a lot in common with them.

Q: If you could have one talent besides football, what would it be?
A: I would be very, very, very smart. I want to be a genius, like a doctor.

Q: What’s something funny about one of your teammates?
A: Brandon Ogletree is half bald and he’s only 20-something.

Q: What do you like most about your position?
A: I like running around, making plays and hitting people.

Q: When did you start playing football?
A: I started playing in the fourth grade because it was fun. I really liked the competitive edge.


No. 4 Taysom Hill, Fr., QB, Pocatello, ID

Q: What is your favorite thing about BYU?
A: I think right now the camaraderie that we have as a team, the way we work out and the closeness that we have has been a good experience. I like everything what BYU stands for on and off the field.  To have the opportunity to play Division I football at the highest level as well as the coaching staff, both coach Mendenhall and coach Doman, was very appealing to come here. So that’s probably why I chose BYU. It’s been a great experience so far.

Q: What is the best thing about your hometown?
A: Pocatello is a small town. I would just say the people, the people I was raised with, my friends and my family, that’s what makes home, home.

Q: If you could have one talent, besides football, what would it be?
A: Golf. I would like to be really good at golf. I’m not too bad, maybe like high 80’s golfer but it would be nice to be really good at golf.

Q: Who is your favorite pro golfer?
A: You know, it’s interesting, I like to see Tiger Woods do well. Ultimately, it’s hard to support him after everything that’s come out but I still like to see him do well. I also like Phil Mickelson.

Q: What’s something funny about one of your teammates?
A: The other day we were lifting weights and I was doing some ball throws with Mitch Mathews. His arms are so long, it was just so funny to me.
