Tryouts for the first Utah Man begin in April.
March 25, 2004
SALT LAKE CITY -
A "Utah Man" is about to become a part of Utah football lore. Head coach Urban Meyer and his staff will hold student body tryouts to select two players as the Utah Man, starting with a required meeting on April 5.
The Utah Man will play for Utah's kick-off coverage team in the 2004 season and seasons to come. He will represent the uniting force between the student body and the football team. The name on the jersey of the two students chosen will say Utah Man.
Interested students must attend an information and compliance meeting on April 5 at 4 p.m. and participate in a conditioning and strength test on April 12 at 2 p.m. Both meetings are in the Smith Athletics Center located on Guardsman Way. The two chosen candidates will be required to attend all practices and conditioning workouts with the team when camp starts in August. The Utah Man will travel with the team to all road trips.
Questions regarding the Utah Man will be addressed at the April 5 meeting. For any other inquiries, contact Kim Raap at 581-3542 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
