BYU School of Communications professor Kris Boyle and students Jenae Hyde and Lindsey Peterson traveled to Harlem, New York to document the BYU Football team’s annual More2Life Foundation trip. Through their hard work, Boyle and his students hope members of the greater BYU community will learn about the good their fellow Cougars are doing throughout the country.

“I don’t think that many people realize the football team does this trip. It’s amazing to see how excited the kids are to interact with the players,” said Peterson. “Nobody knows about it and they really need to.”

Boyle and his students were able to witness and document firsthand the mutually beneficial experience for all involved. The communications team spent two days with BYU football players and coaches in Harlem filming and photographing the events and interactions between the players and those they met.

“The work that More2Life does for these kids is amazing,” said Boyle. “They are life-changing experiences, and we felt it was important to share them. These players and coaches are doing this work on their own time — away from the football field.”
