Joey Clyde kallsen to his memorial.

By: Cowboy Assistant, Coach Bryan Applewhite:

When your best friend literally dies in your arms, it puts life in perspective.

"It certainly puts football in perspective," says Bryan Applewhite, the personable coach of Wyoming's running backs. It was a life-changing experience. I do my best not to take anything for granted anymore."

Applewhite, who is in his second season with Joe Glenn and the Cowboys, was born and reared on a farm five miles from where the north runway at DIA now stands, and some 20 minutes east of Brighton, Colo. He, his best friend Joey Kallsen, and another friend, Craig Smith, were driving home from dinner on a March in 1999. Joey lost control of his truck--a truck Applewhite had just sold him--and it rolled. Two friends walked away, one didn't. Kallsen was crushed under the vehicle. "I tried my hardest to move the truck, and couldn't, Applewhite says. By the time rescue help arrived, it was too late."

"He and I had known each other since Kindergarden. We were very close. We had talked about owning a farm or ranch together. I was going to go into ag-business, and he was going to run our ranch. We always joked with each other that I would be the brains and he would be the brawn. And, then he was gone. Had I known in Kindergarden that he would be gone at 24 years of age, I would have done a lot more with him. Friendships are just so important."
