'Mormon' Attack on Tiger Woods' Records Fails
A double-barrell attack on Tiger Woods' US Amateur Championship records came up empty Friday as both defending US Amateur Champion and LDS Church member Jeff Quinney and 17-year-old Danile Summerhays lost in the tournament's quarterfinals. Quinney lost by just one hole to his former ASU teammate and fellow Oregonian Brian Nosler while Summerhays, the youngest player in the quarterfinals, lost to Robert Hamilton, the oldest player.

LDS youth Ben Olson, considered by some the best prep quarterback in the US, is facing the decision that every serious LDS high school athlete must face: whether or not, and when, to serve an LDS mission. In fact, Olson has researched the consequences, "No quarterback has gone on a mission, come back and really done anything in college football," he says. "I'd be the one to change that."

LDS Linebacker Chosen Team Captain at Navy
The United States Naval Academy at Annapolis, MD is a place that trains young men and women for a career in the service of their country. It prepares the minds and bodies of the young midshipmen to serve a cause greater than themselves. While the concept of service to others is foreign to some of these trainees, others have already learned many of life's lessons about service. In the case of Annapolis senior Jake Bowen, football player and recently returned missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, service was a way of life for two years.
