According to Howard Eskin, Britain Covey couldn’t get into the player’s parking lot on Monday night because the attendants didn’t believe he actually played for the team:

I can’t even blame the parking lot attendants. Look at Britain Covey in this video next to Jalen Hurts after beating the Lions:
“The standard is the standard.
And it only rises”
“We have a lot to learn from”
“We know we got that feeling in our gut right now. That s**** not right. So let’s fix it”

Is that a NFL punt returner or some special teams coach’s kid wearing compression pads and armbands?
Covey later confirmed it was him after some Eagles fans tailgating spotted him and took a picture:

The ironic part of the story is Covey was nicknamed “old man” on the team at Utah because he didn’t graduate until he was 25 after taking a two-year LDS mission. He even used to dance in the locker room with an old man beard after wins:
