One of my more talkative and energetic students was hanging out in my room for lunch today. This particular student is probably no taller than 5 foot 5, but I’m sure that in his mind he sees himself as 6 foot 5. Out of the blue he says to me, “Mr. Merrill, I’m going to go to BYU and become the next black Jimmer!” Classic…. We all need dreams right?

Go Jimmer! Go BYU!
