Michael Alisa: My First Week at BYU

Coming in to camp as a true freshmen, I had no idea what to expect from my teammates and coaches. Many thoughts on my arrival (mostly negative) entered my mind. I had thoughts such as, “Would the older players accept me? How will i stack up against other players on the football field?”

What I came to find, as time went by, BYU Football goes so much further than what happens out on the field. The players and coaches in this organization stand for so much more than the game itself. And the players play for so much more than themselves.

There is a special feeling in our team meetings. I know for a fact that no other team in the country has team meetings or activities like we do.

The activities and meetings that we hold as a team are truly welcoming to the Spirit. Sharing such powerful experiences as a team strengthens and unifies us. I feel blessed and very grateful to have the opportunity of being a part of BYU Football in our ‘Quest for Perfection’.
