For the first time this fall the Boise State football team donned full pads, Sunday morning, which meant newcomers and veterans were also finally able to practice together as a team. With all the excitement surrounding the first full practice of the season, senior cornerback Kyle Wilson (5-10, 185) made it clear why he is a team captain, earning Head Coach Chris Petersen’s Camper of the Day honor.
“[Kyle] is very focused,” Coach Petersen said. “You can tell every rep that he takes, he’s on a mission. It’s not always perfect, but he comes back the next play with more focus and determination. We need that kind of focus and energy to bleed off on everybody on our defense and we’d be in great shape.”
Wilson, a Piscataway, N.J. native (Piscataway HS), enters his final season looking to improve upon a standout junior season that earned him first-team All-Western Athletic Conference honors at cornerback, and second-team all-conference honors as a punt returner. Wilson led the Broncos with five interceptions, 10 pass breakups and 35 tackles. He also scored three punt return touchdowns, which was tops in the nation.
