After playing his final game as an Aggie, linebacker Kyler Fackrell took time to write a heartfelt letter to the university and the fans. Here it is in its entirety:

Utah State believed in me. They were the only school to offer me a scholarship to play college football.

I could not be more thankful for my time on campus. I watched our team compete in five straight bowl games and finally gain the national recognition we rightfully deserve. I am proud to have been a small part of this success.

During my time in Logan, a lot has changed. I have grown and matured as a man. I met my terrific wife, Liz, and together we were blessed by a wonderful daughter, Delaney. I have become a college graduate and I developed as a football player. All of these accomplishments can be credited to my time at Utah State and the people that influenced me along the way.

Thank you to my family and friends for their unconditional love and support. Thank you to my teammates throughout the years. I was proud to take the field with you each and every week. Thank you to Coaches Gary Andersen, Matt Wells, Kevin Clune and the many others who were incredible teachers and role models.

Thank you to Lori, Kevin, Brennan, Mike and the football training staff for helping me recover from last year’s injury and always working to keep me on the field. Thank you to the Utah State football operations, athletic and sports information departments for supporting me, the team and the university.

Finally, thank you to the loyal Aggie fans across the state and country. I appreciate your passion and dedication to our program. I look forward to joining your ranks and continuing to support Utah State football and the university as a proud alumnus.

Go Aggies!

Kyler Fackrell
