Playing for an elite Division I football program could get competitive, or so you would think. But today during weekly player interviews, Boise State football players were very complimentary of each other and really stressed the importance of lifting each other up, “when something doesn’t go well we always try to make sure to pick each other up and they do that for us so it’s pretty cool” says the Broncos offensive lineman John Molchon. Molchon's teammate Akilian Butler was also quick to add “we just stay pushing each other and you know when someone else has the success we just all feel like we have success”.
Some may say the teams' tight bonds are the reason behind their success, whatever the reason it’s refreshing to see a team building each other up opposed to breaking each other down. The comradery you see both on and off the field attest to the player's personal development and program standards. Currently, the Bronco’s are 3-1 this year and 1-0 in their conference, this Saturday they’re heading into their second conference game and their second time on the Blue Turf. They’ll face San Diego State at 1:30 p.m for a much earlier kick-off than we are used too.
With game day right around the corner, it’s important to note that tickets are still available. According to Boise State officials, there are approximately 1,500 left. Fans in attendance also have the opportunity for a fun photo op on the Blue Turf. Bronco Nation is invited to take the field about 20 minutes after the game has ended.
