Is Britain Covey’s highlight video BYU’s best ever?


I’m not usually one to follow the recruitment of BYU athletes. It’s hard to get excited about players who may not see the field for at least three years — and that’s only if they see playing time as true freshmen post mission.

After Britain Covey was officially offered by the Cougars last week, his YouTube highlight video began making the rounds on message boards, and I’ve watched it no less than five times. I don’t know how his game will translate to the next level because of his size, but that doesn’t mean I can’t daydream about the day — probably not until 2020 — when he is zipping past would-be tacklers and scoring every time he touches the ball.


Jon Eyre has worked in marketing communications at a number of high tech companies in Utah Valley for the past nine years. He is a 2003 graduate of BYU, and worked as a graduate assistant for the school's Sports Information Department for the 2003 and 2004 football seasons. When he isn't working, Jon spends his time scouring the internet searching for obscure indie bands, trying to decipher the meaning of Lost, or hanging out with his wife and three children.
