Why did you come to BYU?

I’ve just always wanted to. I knew it was the right environment that I wanted to be a part of. It’s a good program, a good education. Just everything.

What is your favorite professional team?

I like the 49ers because my dad grew up in the Bay Area. I’m not a diehard anything fan, but I guess I like the 49ers because I’m from California.

When/why did you start playing football?

Conversation in the national spotlight continues for BYU football following another win last weekend at home.
Check out this latest round:
 
ESPN's Jesse Palmer  was on the Dan Patrick Show talking about Taysom Hill and BYU:
"He's a freak show. He's a much faster runner, I think, than Tim Tebow was. He's a more sudden athlete...He's dangerous...I think Taysom's the kind of guy though, that can take it to the house from a distance.
