PROVO – Marc Wilson. Robby Bosco. Luke Staley. Cougar faithful watched these once-in-a-generation athletes lead the BYU football program to new heights during each of their careers.
Now, they’re immortalized in Lavell Edwards Stadium for their contributions in Cougar Blue as they join six other Cougar Legends who have received the honor of having their jersey number retired.
“This is a great honor,” Wilson said. “It’s been fun this week because I’ve reflected so much about my time here at BYU and what a privilege it was to play here.”
While they’re recognized for their individual success, each noted that they wouldn’t be in this position without the help of their teammates.
“It’s unfortunate just one name goes up there,” Staley said. “In reality, it’s a team effort. It’s a team unit that was able to put us where we were, to put us in the positions we were at.”
“To be surrounded by a hundred other teammates and accomplish the goals that we have accomplished is truly amazing,” Bosco added.
Among those accomplishments are a National Championship, a Doak Walker Award, two Sammy Baugh Trophies and four First Team All-American nominations.
“A lot of great people have worn the number six here at BYU and I feel very fortunate to be up here with these two guys,” Bosco said.
