The origin of what is now the BYU50 campaign was in 2013 when a few select boxes of BYU Athletics merchandise were dropped in locations throughout Utah. In 2014, the number of boxes increased to 25 throughout the state. Clues were provided on BYU Athletics social media accounts to lead fans to the boxes. The first to find each box won the swag. Swarms of fans engaged with the event, including fans throughout the country who wanted to be involved. In 2015, the campaign went national. BYU Athletics provided exclusive boxes in at least one city in all 50 states. With BYU’s unique national fan base, tied closely with congregations of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints throughout the country, BYU fans can be found almost everywhere. The BYU50 campaign continued from 2016 through 2018, with some international locations also added. Prizes included exclusive boxes collaborated on with Nike and BYU football helmets. Each BYU50 drop throughout the campaign’s history has been found within minutes of the social media clues.
At the heart of BYU Athletics, the ROC is a driving force. It is your passion, unity and your loyalty that makes LaVell…
