BYU to retire Gifford Nielsen’s jersey

Former Oiler Gifford Nielsen is having his number 14 jersey retired (along with fellow BYU quarterback Ty Detmer) on Saturday.

Nielsen ended up drafted by the Houston Oilers and had a six-year career in the NFL. That experience opened up doors as a sportscaster in one of the nation’s largest TV markets. He is currently a popular celebrity in the Greater Houston area who is involved in the community and serves as an LDS stake president.

Congratulation, Gifford.
