On January 21, 2010, approximately 1000 sixth-grade students from across Utah Valley descended onto the BYU campus for an exciting day to be spent with their local sports heroes. Brockbank Elementary made up 57 of the over 1000 student. BYU calls this activity "Sports Hero Day". Its purpose is to provide sixth-grade students the opportunity to interact with BYU athletes, and to observe their positive examples in academics, athletics, and social circumstances up close and personal. The sixth-grade students were given the chance to try many different sports with the college athletes. Some of the student's favorites were football, volleyball, soccer, and golf.
