    IMG_2674.JPG IMG_2677.JPG IMG_2678.JPG Got some tix for the asu game from denver_sc, so I was able to take my 13 year old son to the game!

    We had a great time. Traffic was insane and we showed up much later than we wanted. The crowd was so big we had to park much further away from the stadium than I thought, but it was fun getting jazzed for the game.

    We both bought new CU hats, listened to the band, and headed to our seats.

    Game was awesome!
    PlAce looked to be a sellout, and the crowd was so hyped up.

    We all know what happened at the game, so I won't go into that.

    My son had bought a mini helmet a few days prior to the game. He kept telling me all day how he wanted to get montez and bobo's autographs on it. I kept telling him it would be very hard to do, but we would try.

    I figured his chances were slim to none on this, but he's 13. Can't take away his dreams.

    After the game the students rushed the field. He asked if we could join them, so I said sure. Within a few minutes we were on the field.

    Players and fans were everywhere, and all the players came to right where we were to sing the fight song with the band! It was awesome!

    When they finished, wouldn't you know it, Steven Montez walked right at us! Tyler cautiously looked at him (I'm 6'3" 220 but he DWARFS me) and asked for An autograph. Montez was very very nice and signed the helmet and we took some pix.

    When he was done, a little kid maybe 5 years old was just staring at him. Montez got on his knee and said hello. The kid put his fist and thumb up and didn't say a word. Montez put his thumb on the kids thumb. Then the little kid started playing itsey bitsy spider, and Steven played along for a minute or two!

    As we moved off the field, we ran straight into Bryce Bobo! My son asked for his autograph, and he complied! He spoke to my son do a few minutes after I told him he was tylers hero...which he is. Every time we watch the buffs he raves about him AnD how good is.

    We were stoked! We made our way off the field and were walking past the tunnel and tyler said," I can't believe I got Montez' autograph!"

    At that time, a voice from behind snapped at him," what did you say about Steven Montez?" We turned and there was a lady and man following us. Tyler said," I A said I can't believe I got his autograph." She said,"oh, well then you should know that I'm his mother." She showed the back of her shirt that says 'Montez mom' on the back. We spoke for a good 15 minutes while she was waiting for him to come out.

    She kept saying that he's as good a sister sefo, but 'only a freshman.' She is Very proud of him.

    We came home, and my son found Montez on Facebook and friended him. The next day Steven accepted the friend request and the two have been talking online ever since. He's one of the nicest people on the world, and we are now officially his biggest fans!

    Great story! What an awesome night for your son. If wasn't before, he's now a Buff for life!

    I took lots of others but figured these told the story adequately enough.

    Glad to hear that Montez is looking like he will be able to fully step into the void Sefo leaves next year. Interactions like that are so important in sports. They create life long football fans.

    Props to Montez for breaking gender barriers with aplomb, grace, and a minimum of publicity.

    (Nice write up!) thank you for sharing your story.

    Gotcha! I typed it on an iphone, so I didn't notice that change. I will leave it for so people know what we are talking about.
    IT was supposed to say , "she kept saying that he'sa as good as sefo, but 'only a freshman.'

    Ha!

    Honestly, talent wise he is probably better than Sefo. He is going to be a monster with a full off season under his belt as the favorite for the starting job.

    I think Sefo teh best QB we've had in 20 yaers here, but I think Montez could be the best QB ever up here.

    Anyone else see any irony in the '13' jersey DH's son was wearing?

    Awesome he got to meet the players.

    Great story. Sounds like Montez is ready to be a role model.

    Awesome read! So happy for you and your son. Not only is the team winning on the field again, but they're winning the hearts and minds too!

    Glad to see so many CU fans showed up in Anaheim! lol

    When your son has his tongue stuck out I laughed thinking of the gif of the kid in the stands dancing with his tongue out. Someone help me out. He pulls his shirt up? Funny as hell.

    These stories are why I love college football. It's lovely to hear these stories instead of A. Briles stories

    Awesome to have the kids get behind the buffs, and the players return the attention. We lost a lot of those younger fans the last decade.

    Guys like Sefo and Montezooma grab everyone's attention. The cool thing is it's off the field as much as on. My son asks about both everyday, pretty damn cool.
