Thursdays Hero Returns

After this evening's practice the team recognized its first Thursdays Hero of the 2009 season, even though it is Friday.

Today's honoree was seven-year-old Cameron Evans from West Valley, Utah. A year ago Cameron had 20-50 vision. In only a 12-month span his vision has worsened to 20-600 due to juvenile macular degeneration.

As the team gathered to welcome Cameron, wide receiver Parker Mangum and tight end Andrew George stepped forward to present gifts. He was also asked to sign the team flag which is carried onto the field before every game.
