Eyes on Unga
Who would have thought student-athlete-football player Harvey Unga would announce his decided to withdraw from BYU?
Who would have thought this picture I shot of him on the last day of spring practice would possibly be the last of him in a BYU uniform?
I don't think anyone was expecting it. But he made the decision to withdraw as a result of a violation of the BYU honor code.
Unga, a 6-foot, 237-pound running back, is the school’s all-time leading rusher with 3,455 yards gained over his first three seasons in the Cougar backfield. He led the Mountain West Conference in rushing last year while garnering first-team All-MWC honors after a third consecutive 1,000-yard season.
Not really sure I completely understand this "honor code" but from what I am told, many students follow it and it has a more or less a tattle-tale form of regulating. You see someone breaking it, you rat them out. So who knows what happen in this case.
Alas, I thought this picture from practice was ironic. A way of saying, all eyes are on you. All the time. Don't break the rules.
