Day 20: Newcomer Of The Day
Aug. 25, 2015

BOISE, Idaho - The Broncos got back to work on The Blue Tuesday, as the Sept. 4 season opener against Washington lies just 10 days away. Ahead of that, Tuesday's Newcomer of the Day is freshman cornerback Donzale Roddie.

Roddie, from Compton, Calif., caught 28 passes for 611 yards and nine touchdowns for Paramount High School as a senior in 2014. That performance helped lead Paramount to the CIF Southern Section quarterfinals, and led to Roddie playing in the DBGuru All-Star Game with fellow Bronco Tyler Horton. As a junior, Roddie hauled in 30 balls for 514 yards and seven touchdowns, while on defense he made 36 tackles with an interception.

Bronco fans can get to know Roddie a little more below, and can follow the latest updates and behind-the-scenes happenings of Fall Camp as well as with the many Boise State programs by adding us on Snapchat at "broncoathletics" from a mobile device or tablet.
