What is one thing only a few people know about you?

I have no toenail on my pinky toe, my dad tied my baby shoes too tight and they fell off

Why BYU?

I came here for an accounting degree and ended up playing football. I got lucky.

Do you have any pregame rituals?

I listen to the same four songs. Nobody has ever heard of them, “Gotta understand” by Jurassic Five, “Definition” by Black Star, Blue Scholars and Common Market. Nobody knows any of them.

This week BYU football welcomed the Howe family from Sydney, Australia, to practice to honor their son, Ethan, as a Thursday's Hero.

Ethan was diagnosed with cancer a year ago and went through rounds of chemo therapy and surgery to remove tumors from his kidneys. Ethan is now cancer free and was cleared by doctors to visit the U.S. The Howes went to Disneyland and will also attend Friday night's game against Utah State. The game will be Ethan's first American football game. He has traveled one of the farthest distances of all Thursday's Heroes honored.

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?
