Matt Bushman
Freshman tight end

What do you like to do in the offseason when you're not playing football?
I like to go fishing with friends. I’ve been fishing ever since I was a little kid.

Hidden talent?
I can juggle.

What is the most embarrassing song on your iPod?
I like Taylor Swift, I know that might be a little embarrassing for a football player, but I like her music.

If you could play any Olympic sport, what would it be?
The skiers that just go off the jumps super high and they just fly.

Favorite thing about BYU?
Just the atmosphere. We’re all friends, we all just get along. It’s a great place to be, lots of great things to do here in Utah.

Jonah Trinnaman
Senior wide receiver

Favorite food?
I love eating salmon and steak, but if it’s something that my parents make its tater-tot casserole. It’s freaking good. At least once a month we’ll have tater-tot casserole. I’m a big fan of my dad’s tater-tot casserole. 

Hidden talent?
I used to be really good at sound effects when I was younger. I was really good at instruments, like a trumpet. I got really good at the trumpet. 

Guilty pleasure?
I love 80's music. I’m big into 80's music, I’m talking like Wham! 80’s pop type music. My mom used to listen to it all the time, so I listened to it all the time growing up.

Do you have any pregame rituals?
I put dollar bills in my socks. I’ve been doing it since high school and at Snow College. I just put a dollar bill in each sock. 

Dream job?
Obviously, I would love to play in the NFL, but if that doesn’t work out, it would be a pediatrician. I wouldn’t want to go to school for it, but it would be my dream job. I’m not super great at the whole medical side, but just being able to work with and hang out with kids. They’re always so fun and easy to talk to, a lot easier than adults.
