Everyone has heard a bunch of different stuff about Mormons. Some of it's true, but a lot of it is false. What a lot of people may not know about them is that they love 'em some football.
You'd be hard pressed to find many college football fanbases that are more passionate about their school and team than those attached to Brigham Young University and the University of Utah.
A lot of young Mormons dream of playing football in college. Their abstinence from drinking alcohol and doing drugs is something prescribed by the religion, but it helps their athletic development as well.
The two-year missions that many young Mormons serve take them out of college for a couple years. They may be off the field for two seasons, but they gain an invaluable amount of real world experience while serving in obscure corners of the world. The maturity these players gain while on their missions cannot be measured, but it's a great asset for any athlete.
Maturity is especially important for a quarterback, and Arizona's Max Hall will display that, as well as his abilities as a passer, for the remainder of this season.
There are a lot of Mormons in the NFL, and here are some the ones making a splash this year.
