The football team from Brigham Young University recently visited New York City to honor the community service work of their former head coach, the late LaVell Edwards, who passed away in December of 2016.  The More2Life foundation, the BYU football program and the Brooklyn Tech Football program visited MS 113 and JHS 383 on April 28th and put on a life-skills workshop with the middle school students.

At MS 113, Coach McKenna, Shafia Langford, Joshua Yam, Michael Marcovici and Sebastian Garcia accompanied the BYU players and coaches.  A highlight of the morning was listening to 1990 Heisman Trophy winner and former BYU QB Ty Detmer (now the Cougars Offensive Coordinator)  talk about the commitment of BYU football players to the honor code of the school.  The group also heard from current QB Tanner Mangum about his work ethic.
