Out with the old and in with the new. But before moving on to the promise of the future of Utah Valley sports, we are taking a look back at some of our top 2015 stories.
We were surprised by some of the top visited stories, especially since none of them had to do with a specific game. Here are the top five sports stories visited on UtahValley360 in 2015:
BYU football fans were shocked when BYU head football coach Bronco Mendenhall announced he would be leaving to coach at Virginia in 2016. However, Cougar fans were elated to hear Kalani Sitake was taking over as head coach, especially when he added Ty Detmer as the offensive coordinator.
When Detroit Lions’ Kyle Van Noy accidentally switched lap tops with Ilene Strong, Traverse Mountain Elementary’s principal, he visited the school to switch back laptops and visited with students while he was there.
Before officially signing with Duke basketball in September, Lone Peak standout Frank Jackson said he had “definite interest” in BYU. However, Duke came calling and the Utah Valley resident will now play across the country. Game over.
After a disappointing NCAA tournament loss in March, we looked at the future of BYU basketball and made some of our own guesses for what the future holds.
This is barely a sports story, but since it takes place at the Marriott Center for the BYU basketball games we included it. We had to watch nearly 30 minutes of Kiss Cam footage to find the best (and, for some, the most humiliating) footage. We shrunk it down to 24 animated gifs for your laughing pleasure.
