During Fall Camp I sat down to talk with several of the newcomers on the 2008 BYU team, and asked them, among other things, why they decided to come to BYU and what they were looking forward to the most in the months and years to come.

O'Neill Chambers

It would have to be my freshman year, playing in my first game and making my first catch on varsity.

Coming out here and having fun. Hopefully accomplish my goals and the team goals, and get my degree here.
