PRO SCOUT DAY

Every year a large contingent of NFL scouts converge on the BYU campus to get an up close look at BYU’s future NFL hopefuls. Every year more than 60 NFL personnel, representing every NFL team, visit Provo.

TOP OF THE CLASS

BYU’s rich football tradition has bred some of the top football minds in the country. Several former BYU players and coaches have gone on to become successful coaches in the NFL. Former BYU offensive lineman Andy Reid led the resurgent Philadelphia Eagles into Super Bowl in 2004. A former BYU assistant coach under LaVell Edwards, Mike Holmgren has also led his teams to the NFL's top game, guiding Green Bay to two Super Bowls, including a win in the 1997 game, and Seattle to one. Former BYU tight end Brian Billick also coached his team to the top of the NFL when the Baltimore Ravens won the 2001 Super Bowl.
