BYU football team surprises fan wounded in #BYU50 contest

If you show your support for BYU football and get hurt in the process, the football team will honor that dedication with season tickets.

Last week, dedicated BYU fan Amy Miller broke her right arm in the process of chasing down one of the highly coveted #BYU50 boxes.

The #BYU50 campaign has members of BYU marketing crossing the country, dropping a box full of signed goodies and sweet BYU paraphernalia, and then tweeting a picture of the box's location. The first fan to the box wins it.

There are no details as to exactly how Miller broke her arm (for all we know she could have stiff armed a child), but she was able to claim the box even after sustaining her injury.

Word spread quickly to the athletic department (Tom Holmoe quickly replied to her tweet) and earlier today, the entire team showed up on Amy's doorstep for a surprise visit.

So the whole team shows up on her doorstep. Cool. Then they decided to do this.

Not only did Amy get a visit from the team, but her dedication got her some season tickets.

This might set a dangerous precedent as there are still a good number of BYU50 boxes left to be distributed. Get out there and sacrifice your bodies, BYU fans.
