I was born in Tacoma, Wa; and raised in Sacramento, Ca. I'm currently a junior majoring in criminal justice with a minor in leadership. I'm heavily involved within the university and I have a love for all of the Bronco sports.

he Boise State Track and Field team headed into last weekend’s “Clash at the Border” meet looking to establish some strong momentum while trying to defeat rivals around the Idaho border. The Broncos performed very well in the meet, winning 11-events and setting several school/personal records. One who stood out the most was performance of senior Destiny Gammage, junior Mackenzie Flannigan, senior Taryn Campos and redshirt senior Heather Pilcher in the women’s 400-meter relay as they set a school record of 45.49 seconds; also setting the fastest women’s 400-meter relay in the state of Idaho. Campos also went on to ...

It’s the bottom of the ninth inning; the Boston Red Sox are at home against the Tampa Bay Rays. It’s all tied-up 2-2 with Dustin Pedroia on first base and Mike Napoli at bat. Napoli rips it off the Green Monster wall in left field as Pedroia sprints around the bags and slides into home. The crowd erupts with joy as the Boston Red Sox win in stunning fashion at home. All is right in Boston. Less than an hour later, the famous Boston Marathon was coming to an end when two explosions went off near the finish line, killing three and ...

As the NCAA basketball tournament rolls into the Final Four in Georgia, there have been many storylines and surprises leading up to this point. Whether that’s the No. 15 seeded Florida Golf Coast defeating the No.2 seed Georgetown and advancing all the way to the Elite Eight or the No.13 seed LaSalle (who defeated Boise State) fighting its way to the Elite Eight as well. But what may be the most impressive is the No.8 seed Wichita State’s journey to the Final Four. The Wichita State Shockers, no pun intended, surprised the college basketball world with two major upsets victories ...

All can now sigh with relief. Major League Baseball is back. If you’re a diehard baseball enthusiast like myself, you’re already thinking about October and the post-season. Predicting the post-season is one of the most intriguing parts of the season. Will the aging Yankees be able to stay healthy throughout the year, will the Nationals allow pitcher Stephen Strasberg to roam free and not worry about inning limitations, will the Mariners win 85- games, etc. So, here are my “way too early baseball predictions” for the 2013 MLB season. AL West: Angels. While the Rangers and A’s could compete for ...

At the Boise State football pro-day, all eyes were on cornerback Jamar Taylor. Taylor skyrocketed his draft stock after turning heads at the NFL combine. Taylor has the potential of getting drafted in the first round; adding to the short-list of Boise State first round alumni. Taylor only participated in one (combine-related) drill, the 60-yard shuttle, where he ran a 10.91. With a strong time, Taylor built his stock even more. “The important thing was footwork…as a corner, you really need to show your feet and hips. I just tried to come how here and show that I’m capable of doing those ...

As I wrote earlier in the season, the Boise State men’s basketball team is very good. Their birth in the NCAA tournament goes to prove that. Are they the 13-seed? Yes, but what’s important to take into consideration is their age and how quick these players have responded to Head Coach Leon Rice in changing this program around. This gives the Boise community more to follow than just what’s going on on the blue turf. It also marks the first-at-large bid in Boise State history for the Broncos. It’s no longer just Chris Petersen as a public figure for Bronco ...

This past year you surely have heard about the Manti Te’o controversy. The once loved and iconic Notre Dame linebacker was involved in an Internet hoax with a supposed long-distance girlfriend. But what Te’o supposedly didn’t know was this Internet girlfriend was actually Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, a childhood friend and a man that admittedly fell in love with Te’o. “He had no involvement,” Tuiasosopo said after the eventual uncovering of this controversy. Even though Tuiasosopo “cleared” Te’o’s name, questions were still being asked. Is Manti Te’o gay? Did he know he was in a relationship with a man the whole time? ...

As the Boise State men’s basketball team’s regular season comes to an end, the Mountain West basketball tournament is headed into full force. The Mountain West conference has gained the reputation of being one of the most balanced conferences in all of the NCAA; having a total of five teams with less than 10 losses, which not only means it should be entertaining, but also very competitive between the teams. The tournament kicked off on Mar. 12 as the No. 8 seed, Wyoming, defeated the No.9 seed, Nevada. Nevada will play New Mexico on Mar. 13. The Broncos come into ...

It’s Spring Training. The Seattle Mariners won’t be good in the regular season. They don’t have enough power to hit home runs in Safeco (Mariners’ Stadium). It’s all speculation, pure speculation. Tell me that  in previous seasons and I would have agreed. But here’s a fact that is actually occurring right now: The Seattle Mariners have won 10 games in a row after losing their first game of Spring Training; pushing them to a 10-1 overall record for spring ball. Whether you believe in the Mariners or not, that is impressive. Over the past four years, the Mariners have been ...

The Boise State wrestling team headed down to Tempe, Arizona in hopes of have a successful trip at the PAC-12 wrestling championship. To say the Broncos had a successful trip may be an understatement. The Broncos shared the spotlight of the night with the Oregon State Beavers. Boise State finished as a team 2nd overall in the tournament with 136.5 total points, just falling short to the Beavers who finished 1st. Although the Broncos didn’t take home the team championship, several of the Boise State wrestlers had big days. The biggest standout of the day may have come from senior wrestler, ...

Senior Jason Chamberlain was born to wrestle. He has been dominating opponents on the mat since he could lace up his shoes. Now as an accomplished senior, his illustrious amateur career is coming to a close. He began wrestling at a young age in his hometown of Springville, Utah; setting a strong foundation and building the skills to set him up for success. “It was first grade in our little kids club,” Chamberlain said. “We had handouts at school that I took home and I asked my parents…I had a knack for it. My dad coached me at the time ...

Last Saturday, the Boise State men’s basketball team battled in a tough loss to No.19 ranked New Mexico in Albuquerque, 60-50. The Broncos fought as Boise State star sophomore guard Derrick Marks scored 19 points and Senior Center Kenny Buckner added 11 rebounds, but ultimately New Mexico was too much to handle. But when the Boise State men’s basketball team took on Air Force they were driven. One of their main missions was to play solid defense. After all, this is the same Boise State team that allowed Air Force star Michael Lyons to score a career-high 37 points. This ...

What has happened to Titus Young?  All it took was 10 days for two seperate teams to say “thanks but no thanks.” What gives? For four years, Young was known as the “big-play” guy that could explode for a touchdown at any moment. The guy was plain and simply, the most dynamic football player Boise State has ever had. After graduating from Boise State in 2011, Young was selected in the 2nd round of the NFL Draft by the Detroit Lions. Young’s momentum was at an all-time high. Young would go on to have a stellar rookie campaign for the ...

This was Cutri’s second game starting for the Broncos. “I thought we were a little more aggressive and I thought Rosie (Rosalie ...

The Boise State gymnastic and wrestling teams dominated in their second Beauty and the Beast match of the year Sunday. While both teams won their match; the wrestling team completely out-wrestled their opponent, Cal Poly.

Just three years ago, the student section at basketball games consisted of a handful of guys who were dedicated supporters of the Boise State basketball team. “There was a group of about 6 or 7 of us and we would show up to all the games … there was no one behind us. We got approached by Leon (Head Coach Leon Rice) our freshmen year, it was the same week he got hired … he met up with us and brought up this idea of The Corral and that’s when it was born,” said Max Forkner, senior and one of ...

First off, hockey doesn’t get the coverage it deserves. Oftentimes when watching SportsCenter you have to carefully plan blinking your eyes just in case you miss it. Today’s column is dedicated to the San Jose Sharks or if you’re a hardcore fan, the “Sharkies”. The Sharks are quietly putting together a phenomenal start at the cut-off 2013 season; sitting at 7-1-1 after their first regulation loss of the season from the Anaheim Ducks. Currently, Sharks left wing Patrick Marleau leads the NHL with nine goals while 23-year old center phenom Logan Couture is tied for third in the NHL with six goals ...

This Saturday the Boise State women’s basketball team (10-10, 2-3 in Mountain West) was looking to carry momentum from their last Mountain West division win into their game against UNLV. Unfortunately for the Broncos, the UNLV Lady Rebels were too much the to handle,  as they lost 75-61. It was a battle the whole way through for the Broncos. Often times having to comeback from a large deficit, the Broncos were down by 19 points at one point in the game. The Broncos’ attempt at a comeback was led by senior forward Lauren Lenhardt who scored 21 points and 11 ...

The Boise State women’s basketball team continued their streak of dominance at home, winning their fifth home game in a row against Nevada. But it wasn’t an easy game, as both teams were fighting to put their team in winning position throughout. Standout senior forward Lauren Lenhardt continued to show her point scoring ability, netting 22 points against a talented Nevada defense. Lenhardt moved up to number 8 in Boise State women’s basketball history with 1,179 points. Lenhardt was also a perfect 8-8 from the free throw line. “It’s a pretty cool honor. You don’t necessarily strive for it, but ...

In the Mountain West division, there is no such thing as an “easy win”.  On Wednesday night, the Broncos (14-5, 2-3 in MW) were clear favorites over the Fresno State Bulldogs. But, the Bulldogs came to fight. Fresno State came out hot in the first half, outshooting the Broncos and forcing Boise State at one time to shoot 16.7 percent from the field. The Bulldogs came prepared, played hard-nosed defense and forced turnovers. However, the Broncos would not quit. “We just need to settle down a little bit,” said Head Coach Leon Rice. “The beauty of it’s a step forward ...

This Sunday Boise State wrestling took on a fellow Pac-12 conference member, Arizona State, for the first duel at home this season. For all of the new wrestling and Boise State enthusiasts: Yes, Boise State is in the Pac-12 division as an affiliate in wrestling. Well, they made it count as they dominated the Sun  Devils.

Felix (No.12). The ...

Coming into Saturday’s second bowl game of the year, the match-up between the Utah State Aggies and the Toledo Rockets was projected to be one of the highest scoring games in the whole bowl season. But not everything goes as it’s planned, at least not right away. Instead of being a high-scoring shootout between these two games, it was nothing but an offensive struggle throughout the first three quarters of the game. In the first play of the game Toledo’s star senior linebacker, and the lead tackler in all of college football, Dan Molls was knocked out of the game with ...

When the Boise State Women’s Basketball team took on the Eastern Washington Eagles on Dec. 7, it marked the 40th anniversary of Title IX being put into place. Title IX, in short, is non-discrimination in educational institutions regardless of sex. Many people get the misconception that Title IX is just used in athletics; but it also means non-discrimination when it comes to academics, jobs on campus or anything else to do with universities in general. The passing of Title IX marked a turning point in the history of athletics, especially when it came to women’s sports. It also requires a ...

Football will be played for the last time this year on the Blue Turf at Bronco Stadium. But it won’t be the Boise State Broncos playing. Utah State, representing the Western Athletic Conference (WAC) and the University of Toledo, representing the Mid-American Conference (MAC), will face-off in the 15th annual Famous Idaho Potato Bowl held at Bronco Stadium on Saturday Dec. 15 at 2:30 p.m. This year’s game looks to be a very competitive one as the Aggies play the Rockets. “Between the two teams we have a combined 19-5 record,” said Bowl Executive Director Kevin McDonald. “Which provides what ...

When someone thinks about a rivalry game, they usually think of a past where two teams have been playing one another for years. Very few get to experience one, especially when the tensions are high and the stakes are even higher. Saturday night when the Boise State Club Hockey team faced the University of Wisconsin Superior at CenturyLink Arena, an instant rivalry was born. Wisconsin Superior is the farthest team back east the Broncos have ever played. “They were really chippy and tried to keep hitting after the whistle. We didn’t take too kindly of that,” said freshman goalie Josh ...
