Tonight the team honored Kelly Edwards as this week's Thursday's Hero. In September of last year, Kelly was diagnosed with brain, liver and kidney cancer and was expected to have only two months to live. Shortly thereafter, he was called to serve as the bishop of the Spring Creek Ward in Lehi, Utah.

Last week Kelly and his family received the news doctors had discovered eight tumors requiring immediate surgery. Tomorrow he will undergo procedures to remove seven of the eight tumors--one of which cannot be removed due to its location on his brain stem.

Kelly was introduced to the team by freshman wide receiver Matt Marshall.

Fireside Reminder

Don't forget about the team's final pregame fireside of the regular season tomorrow night at the Assembly Hall on Temple Square at 7 p.m.
