Senior day brings all kind of emotions for the players and coaching staff, and that rings even more true for Head Coach Bryan Harsin. Most of the seniors on the team were either freshman or redshirts when Harsin arrived on The Blue to replace long-time head coach Chris Peterson.
Coach Harsin added that facing the Rebels, along with what could be the final game for his seniors on The Blue is something special but wants his players to keep the same process and game plan for Friday.
“These guys have been ambassadors of the program and now at this point, they’ve done a lot for this program and they have played very well.
They represent what Boise State is all about so their mission is to finish out their season the right way. But they’re also trying to leave this place better than they found it,” said Head Coach Bryan Harsin.
For Coach Huff and his linemen, it’s been a special journey as the linemen saw their coach get promoted from being offensive line coach to co-offensive coordinator.
Coach Huff will say goodbye to five linemen. Some of them may even have the chance to play at the next level, and Huff says those boys will be missed.
“These guys are like my kids. And I mean that in the best way possible. I actually was thinking about it last night. It’s a very special group. I’ve been fortunate to coach a lot of great guys, and then to have five of them, we’ve been very fortunate and I’m definitely going to miss them.
So I might be the saddest guy in the stadium on a senior night,” said Co-Oc Scott Huff.
