    BYU football: Riley Burt is back and ready to roll for Cougs after redshirt season

    "It was my decision, and the coaches' decision, to have me redshirt," Burt said after Wednesday's spring practice. "We talked about it and thought it would be best for me, and it ended up being a good thing. I've gotten stronger and faster, and grown as a person as well." Recruited as a defensive back out of Brigham City's Box Elder High, the 6-foot-1, 205-pound Burt was moved to running back in fall camp back in 2015. He finished with 14 carries for 86 yards and also returned some kickoffs. He participated with BYU's indoor track team this past winter, improving his burst and his speed. "I felt like I had a pretty good year my freshman year, but I wanted to get faster, trim a little weight,"
