Why I'm Signing with BYU: Zac Dawe

Considered one of the top heavy weight wrestlers in the country, Zac Dawe committed to Coach Mendenhall and BYU to play football. He shares his thoughts on why he will be signing with BYU tomorrow.

Having been committed to BYU for over a year now, Pleasant Grove High School defensive tackle Zac Dawe shared his thoughts on why he is excited to sign his national letter of intent tomorrow.

"Well first off the coaching staff is great and one of the best around," said Dawe. "The coaching staff is kind of like, I don't know, like church advisors who happen to be football coaches. They're all just so caring, not just about who you are as a football player but who you are as a person, and so that to me is why I'm signing with BYU tomorrow. They're just different than any other football team and program in the country. They really just want you to be the best you can be both on and off the field. That's why I chose to go to BYU."

Once he had received his scholarship offer from BYU, going to any other college other than BYU wasn't an option for Dawe.

"Honestly, if any other college had offered me it wouldn't have even phased me," Dawe said. "It wouldn't have mattered if the Seattle Seahawks or the Denver Broncos walked into the room I would still go to BYU. I wanted to go to BYU and have that special experience. I know BYU will give me the most out of my scholarship than any other college out there. That's why I'm going to BYU and that's why I'll be signing with them tomorrow."

Dawe will be signing his NLI around 7:30 AM MT tomorrow morning, signaling an end to a long recruiting road.

"I'm so excited to sign tomorrow because I've been committed for over a year now and just have been waiting to sign," said Dawe. "After the official visit it made me more pumped up to do so. All of them are so unreal and it's going to be a privilege to play with them. I plan on signing tomorrow at 7:30 in the morning because I have sectionals for wresting tomorrow. I'm excited and can't wait."
