Avery Earned Pete's Pick for Player of the Day

BOISE, Idaho - Despite the heat, the Boise State football team was working at full force during the second day of Fall Camp, but no one stood out as much Jeremy Avery as head coach Chris Petersen named the sophomore Player of the Day, Tuesday.

“The player of the day comes from a very competitive group,” said coach Petersen. “It’s hard to single one guy out, but today’s player is Jeremy Avery. He’s practicing very well, very sharp, finishing things well and catching the ball well.”

Last season, the running back from Bellflower, Calif., put together the fourth-best season ever by a freshman running back as he rushed for 672 yards and recorded eight touchdowns for the Broncos. In addition, he averaged 6.5 yards per carry for the season marking the second-best average in school history.
