Braden Hansen: faith, family and football

Braden Hansen, senior offensive lineman, has started in every game of his career at BYU.

A 6-foot-6 senior offensive lineman from Sandy, Utah, Braden Hansen knew from a young age he wanted to play football for BYU, but what he didn’t know was how much his life would change from the experience.

“Since I was probably three or four years old, my grandpa had season tickets,” Hansen said. “He’d always bring me and my two brothers to the home games. Since I was a little kid I grew up coming to all the games. I’ve been trained since I was young to be a BYU Cougar.”
