BYU Football players share Book of Mormon with opposing player after Western Kentucky game

Senior BYU football players Isaiah Kaufusi and Kyle Griffitts were spotted giving away a Book of Mormon to Western Kentucky lineman Gunner Britton following the Cougars’ win on Oct. 31.

“We were just talking during the game and I wanted to learn more of their faith,” Britton told Robby McCombs of Vanquish the Foe. “They were great guys.”

The photos of the exchange were shared by BYU Football on-campus recruiter Jack Damuni over Twitter.

“I was fortunate to catch this priceless scene between Isaiah Kaufusi and Kyle Griffitts giving this player from Western Kentucky a Book of Mormon after the game and sharing their testimonies of the gospel,” Damuni said in his tweet. “I love our boys, they’re great examples to the world.

Many on social media, including BYU Sports Nation’s Jarom Jordan, said this was the first time they have seen a BYU player give away a Book of Mormon to a member of a visiting team.

“They had questions throughout the game so Isaiah grabbed me and said, ‘hey, two by two, come help me out with something,'” Griffitts shared after the game on Twitter.

The two BYU players took a photo with Britton and fellow WKU offensive lineman Mason Brooks with the Book of Mormon in Britton’s hand.
