BYU football: Jake Heaps has stayed ready, Brandon Doman says

Doman, of course, was on the bench his first couple of seasons with the Cougars before getting his opportunity to start at quarterback the last two games of his junior year. As a senior, he started every game and helped the Cougars to a 12-2 record in 2001, passing for 33 touchdowns and 3,542 yards.
