Good morning, friends. Let’s look around the interwebs for some BYU sports stories as you start your summer day.


Christian was a star in the state of Utah in 2015 and originally committed to Oregon State before leaving on his LDS mission. He was also committed to Stanford and Wisconsin at different points during high school — but his relationship with Kalani Sitake was also well-known.


The “new normal” when it comes to the BYU-Utah football rivalry this summer is good friends, moderately good golf and a good cause. But no fight songs.

“I’m grateful for the restart, I guess you could say,” said BYU alum Hannemann, who had two hits in a blowout win. "I don’t forget about what happened in Tennessee. I respect the game. I know it’s hard.”

Sitake credited his assistant coaches for the hard work and deflected praise for landing the linemen who were big-time recruits a few years ago.

BYU men’s lacrosse coach Matt Schneck couldn’t be happier for the guys up north or for his own program.
