The Boise State football team opened its fall camp in preparation for the upcoming season earlier this month.
“We are still in that learning process right now of leading up to that first game,” head coach Bryan Harsin said.
So far, Harsin likes what he has seen from his team.
“I have seen a good effort on both sides of the ball and we have worked hard in practice,” Harsin said. “The guys, to this point, have been putting a lot of good effort in practice.”
Harsin has been particularly impressed with his defense.
“I do like what our defense is doing,” Harsin said. “Our defense has been the most consistent at practices and I feel that is where they needed to be at this point.”
The Broncos are just over one week away from their opener against Ole Miss and Harsin wants to make sure his team is fully prepared.
“It all comes to preparation and the guys have to continue to prepare harder,” Harsin said. “There can’t be any ‘I think I know,’ you have to know. When we are able to do that we feel confident, and when we are confident we will be playing with all our abilities.”
During the three-week camp the team has put in a lot of time and effort, especially in the beginning.
“The first five days is a lot of football, a lot of information and very little sleep,” Harsin said. “That’s really how it is and what we believe, how to train.”
As part of fall camp the Broncos have participated in the annual Bronco Olympics which sees the team compete in a series of different sporting events such as bowling and a home run derby.
“It’s something the guys enjoy and something we enjoy as coaches,” Harsin said. “It breaks up the monotony of camp, but at the same time, it’s still competitive for our team.”
The Broncos will continue fall camp up until the opener against Ole Miss on Aug. 28.
