Over at Bishop Kelly high school, former NFL quarterback and Boise native Jake Plummer was in town for his Plummer Challenge Camp.

It's a free camp that teaches kids out of the box sports that encourage creativity and free play.  Games that were included were badminton, ping pong, wall ball, handball just to name a few. Plummer's message for the campers is just getting out and have fun and stay active.

"This is kind of an opportunity to introduce from 7, 8,14-year-olds up to 15-year-olds.  If you are bored then that's your fault. Shame on you there is a lot of things that you can learn to do and we are trying to introduce that to these kids.  It’s a way to spend your summers and get outside,” said Former NFL Quarterback Jake Plummer.

Plummer is arguably one of the best college and NFL quarterbacks to come out of the treasure valley.  Even though his playing days are over he still pays attention to the game. Plummer played for Capital high school then at Arizona State.  His former backup quarterback at Capital high was Boise State head coach Bryan Harsin. Plummer says that Brett Rypien and Harsin have plenty to play for this year.

"As a senior quarterback things should be good.  They should be highly competitive and be in every ball game.  I love that they take on tough teams that's one way to do it. If you are a college that wants to grow out of where you are in the Mountain West and try and get into that top 8 to somehow find in your way big bowl game you gotta play with the big boys," said Plummer.
