Drew Phillips

He’s become an internet legend. A 2010 BYU football signee, Drew Phillips from Boaz, Alabama has speed to burn and is looking forward to bringing his talent to Provo this fall. When I first saw his highlights on YouTube my immediate reaction was that he reminded me of former Cougar Ronnie Jenkins.

Drew just finished up track season by qualifying for four sprinting events at the 5A Alabama State Track and Field Championships. Phillips went on to win the state championship in the 400 meters, ran the final leg on the state champion 4 x400 relay team for Boaz High School and then on weary legs finished sixth in the state in both the 100 and 200 meters.

In this interview Drew tells Deep Shades of Blue viewers about his decision to play for the Cougars, being a non-LDS student at BYU and how he thinks the Cougars will make use of his abilities. Much thanks to Drew and his brother Anthony who shot this video for us.
