SALT LAKE CITY- The KSL Zone Sports Network went live at the Humane Society on June 29th for the Hans Olsen and Scotty G Pet Adoption Day. Along for the ride were a couple of University of Utah football offensive linemen in support of their OblockCares initiative. Tyler Knaak and Hunter Deuel represented for OblockCares in an effort to get deserving pets in Utah a new home.

Life Is Better With A Best Friend

Both Knaak and Deuel took time to share their personal pet stories in hopes it would spur on locals to come and get a fury friend themselves. Knaak recalled sweet story where his dog and bunny were play-racing around the yard until his dog tripped and the bunny ended up on top of the pile. Deuel on the other hand offered some sound advice about remember to keep your dogs on leashes so they don’t get lost and end up at the Humane Society.


Jim Harding’s group started OblockCares as an effort to get out in the community and do some good. Based off of former Ute and current Jacksonville Jaguar’s o-lineman Nick Ford’s Sunday Supper with Utah Foster Care, OblockCares is a continuation of Ford’s work with an emphasis on getting everyone on the offensive line involved. The idea is the group will play better as a whole if they work hard together on and off the field.

OblockCares’ first event as an official group was with Utah Foster Care at the Utah Chalk Art Festival where Knaak, Kolinu’u Faaiu, Johnny Maea, Paul Maile showed up in support of the families Nick Ford started to help. The next event up for OblockCares will also involve Utah Foster Care as they are set to host the next Sunday Supper on July 10th.
