  Steve Young's Football Fate May Be Decided Tomorrow
The career of LDS football star Steve Young may be decided tomorrow as the San Francisco 49ers and Young decide whether they will release the veteran star, have him play and restructure his contract, or place him on a reserve/retired list. Young is due a bonus on June 3rd, but the team must make a decision by June 1st to avoid having his substantial salary hit their salary cap, according to the financially-strapped 49ers.

  Young given more time to decide
Faced with an impending deadline for his decision about retirement or playing elsewhere, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Steve Young scrambled. The 38-year-old star signed a waiver to delay payment of a $1 million roster bonus until June 10th, effectively giving himself until then to make his decision. If he decides to play, the 49ers are expected to release him because of salary-cap restraints.

  McGrath is man on a mission
Ryan McGrath, catcher for Mississippi State's baseball team, will go on an LDS mission this summer. McGrath, 23, has been called to serve in the Chihuahua Mexico mission. But two or three years ago, McGrath wouldn't have even considered serving a mission.

  LDS Track Star Back From Burnout
BYU senior Susan Taylor was the subject of a recent article in the Salt Lake Tribune. Taylor, who felt she needed a stronger training program, transferred to Brigham Young University after three seasons with the University of Utah. She competed in the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championship that began last Friday in Durham, North Carolina. Taylor entered the race with the second-fastest qualifying time for the women's 1500-meter race.
