Kyle is an old friend, Poly's and family are all over the Utah roster... I get it. But he is a success story out of BYU and was somebody that all the Poly players really looked up too. It'd be nice to see him around more in Provo, or maybe do an article with the Tongan loaded BYU Rugby team when it wins a National title, rather than just the Utah 7's team when they compete in a tourney.
Ironically enough, I think the Autuia hire was huge for BYU because you can say what you want, but from a Poly kids perspective you really don't feel like you completely fit in, no matter how supportive of the culture your coaches may be There's a comfort in that pigeon accent. Mark relates well, and has the million dollar smile, to go with success in schooling, that I know my fellow brownies like. He wasn't hard to miss on the sidelines as "that bald Tongan, that kind of looks like a coach, who is jumping around on the players every time something good happens".
It'd be nice to have the other big time BYU grad who happens to be one of the few famous Polynesians in America (outside of the Rock and Cliff Curtis), writing about the slip and slide with the players, Kaveinga's desire to come back, Van Noy's life altering decision to stay at BYU when he could've gone anywhere, Lasike the Rugby player donning a helmet and pads, Domans hard push to recruit Polynesians in the islands, Quezada joining the church, Kaufusi speaking Tongan to the players, Bronco Mendenhalls grandfather building the Polynesian Cultural Center (one of the prized pearls of Hawaii), etc...
If he still holds a grudge, then it's sad for BYU and the players he can't overcome it and talk about the brown dudes down south too.
