BYU football starts spring practice 09

If you don’t know Jonny Linehan pretty well, you haven’t been paying attention.

BYU’s senior punter first made a name for himself by leading the Cougar rubgy team to the national title and earning the nickname “Jonny Rugby.” Linehan has a big social media presence and recently posted a country video entitled “Puntin’, Kickin’ and Lovin’ Every Day” that he wrote and edited himself.

He also established himself on the football field last season as an effective punter.

We asked Linehan some questions and then put those same questions to his wife – former BYU soccer player Marissa Nimmer Linehan – and his position coach, Ed Lamb, to see who knows Linehan best.
