Greatest mission in the world and he's been privileged to serve in some
An awesome kick for sure. The Boise State game would have turned out differently
had he been healthy.He gets the ball into the air rather nicely.
Chile Osorno! Sweet! That was my mission. I, too, served in Villarrica.
Quellon was part of my area when I served in Castro, since we didn't have
missionaries there at the time; but we never made it out to that town. The Isle
of Chiloe (where Quellon is located) is a beautiful and unique place. Houses on
stilts at the edge of the ocean; beautiful, green hills; wonderful people.
Dick Harmon: This is YOUR kind of story. You hit it out of the ball park with
the details and emotions of this young man's life and his life-changing
experience at the AZ game. That was a magic moment indeed! Congratulations to
Elder Oldroyd and the further success he is experiencing in Chile. See you in
1 1/2 yr.Go BYU Cougars!
What a beast.
Glad to hear he is doing well on his mission. Chlieans are a wonderful people.
Will be back to see him back on the field in a couple years. Will never forget
the green cleated kicker from texas.
Great kicker and even better priorities.
My two sons and I spent the time, money and effort to attend that game. Right
at the end, one of them said "So it's all come down to this, a field
goal attempt" and the other said "Yup." I said, "Well we
blocked that one against UCLA in Las Vegas to win and we had at least one
blocked in Salt Lake, so we'll just have to see what happens." We were
sitting on about the goal line and we could tell the kick was long enough
without any doubt, but we couldn't tell if it was between the
uprights...that is, until the Y fans in the end zone stood up, raised their arms
and started screaming. My visions of wasting a lot of money to see a defeat
flew out of my mind. I started laughing uncontrollably, and then I started
dancing. Not too bad of way for a soon-to-be-retired guy who has watched BYU
football in person since 1969 to celebrate!! Not bad at all!!!! (And one of my
sons took a video to prove I was actually dancing.)
Definitely ice in his veins. The kid is clutch. Will be great to get him back.
