As BYU heads into its final week of the regular season with a matchup at Oklahoma State in Stillwater, BYU Superfan Jonathan Hokanson realized that his 37-game attendance streak would come to an end. “All Streaks Must Come To An End!” Hokanson wrote on X, Sunday night. “After attending 37 straight home & away BYU Football games dating back to the start of the 2021 season, my streak will be ending this week.” Hokanson explained that flights the week of Thanksgiving had gotten too expensive to book. That’s where Quick Quack Car Wash stepped in and offered a helping hand.

Quick Quack Car Wash, a company based in Roseville, California, that also operates in Utah, Texas, Colorado, Arizona, and California with over 200 total locations, wanted to make sure Hokanson’s streak didn’t end this week by sponsoring a first class flight out to Oklahoma. Other groups stepped in too, as Hokanson detailed the list of everyone that helped make this dream turn into a reality. Tickets to the game were gifted by BYU Athletics and even a gameday outfit was provided by Royal Army Brand, an officially licensed BYU clothing brand.
Quick Quack ownership explained the reason why they wanted to intervene and help keep this streak alive in a statement provided to ESPN 960 by Travis Kimball a Founding Partner and CXO of Quick Quack Car Wash:
“Four of the five original founders of Quick Quack Car Wash attended BYU and are somewhat of superfans themselves. Sponsoring BYU Football and other sports has been a dream come true for them. When we saw the post about a fellow fan’s impressive streak to visit home and away games ending, it seemed like a very simple way to pay it forward on a week where we focus on things for which we are grateful.”
Hokanson joined Cougar Sports with Ben Criddle and Valley Sports Talk with Brice Larson in two separate interviews on ESPN 960 to talk about the recent events that had transpired in a matter of 24 hours. One main message stood out, his gratefulness to the community for reaching out and making this journey continue with at least one more game in Stillwater, Oklahoma.
The BYU Superfan told ESPN 960 that this journey started back in 2021 after the passing of his grandfather. “Earlier in that year my Grandpa Fred had passed away, it was just a great reminder of how much he loved BYU sports… as I started going to a few games, I made a last minute trip up to Washington State.” Hokanson explained. He credits a conversation that he had with his father-in-law, Steven at that game for the idea that started the now 37-game attendance streak after suggesting that he might be able to attend each game of that season.
Hokanson also said that his wife, Reevkah and family have supported his journey to hit every BYU Football game over the past few seasons, adding that his young son has become quite the BYU superfan himself as he has passed his Grandfather Fred’s and Father Jared’s love of BYU Athletics on down to the next generation of fans in the Hokanson family.
