Fall Camp: Day 11
Aug. 16, 2015

BOISE, Idaho - The second weekend of Boise State football fall camp came to a close with Sunday morning's practice. With the end of the weekend also came Sunday's Lithia Ford Newcomer of the Day and Camper of the Day, freshman wide receiver Bryan Jefferson and redshirt senior tight end Jake Hardee, respectively.

Hardee, a hometown product here in Boise, starred at Bishop Kelly High School before joining the Broncos. A three-time Academic All-MW selection and two-time recipient of the Mountain West Scholar-Athlete Award, Hardee caught five passes for 73 yards over 13 games in 2013 before appearing in all 14 games last season. Hardee's presence on the line of scrimmage helped strengthen the Bronco running attack as All-American Jay Ajayi went for back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons and scored a school-record 28 rushing touchdowns.

The Broncos will hold a public scrimmage at Albertsons Stadium, beginning at 6:30 p.m. on Friday (Aug. 21). The scrimmage is open to the public, admission is free and the first 10,000 fans through the Albertsons Stadium gates receives a 2015 schedule poster.

Sunday's featured newcomer, Jefferson, comes to Boise from Leesburg High School in Leesburg, Fla. There, Jefferson was one of the main targets on the squad, hauling in 124 receptions for 1,961 yards and 18 touchdowns over his last three seasons. As a junior, he caught 41 passes for 609 yards and five scores while helping lead Leesburg to a district title and second-round appearance in the state 6A playoffs.
