8/6 Camper of the Day: Thomas Byrd
Sophomore Thomas Byrd stood out over the noise of the rain and thunder on Thursday to be named Camper of the Day by head coach Chris Petersen.

“He is an experienced player that got better from day one to day two,” said Petersen. “He made all the calls from the O-line and directed traffic. If he keeps improving like he did today, he will be an excellent player for us this fall.”

Byrd started all 13 games for the Broncos at center as a redshirt freshman in the 2008 campaign. He anchored an offensive line that gave up only 13 sacks on the year to lead the WAC. His work in the trenches helped the offense to average over 440 yards per game and average 37.6 points per game.
