“I think we could be really dangerous. If we put all the pieces together and we keep working hard and we improve every day, I think we'll be a very dangerous unit."
That's the word Boise State wide receiver Matt Miller says he'd like to see describe the Broncos this season.
And while fall camp got underway today, he says the work to that goal started long before Monday's drills.
"We had a great winter and a great spring ball and it carried over into the summer,” Miller says. “So, if we just keep carrying over and improving every day - that's one of our big goals, just to improve every day - if we do that, I think we'll be happy at the end of the season."
Defensive lineman Ricky Tjong-A-Tjoe says it's going to take every player - offense and defense - to get them where they want to be.
"Everybody's working hard and grinding, so I feel like, if we do that we'll just continue to get better and everything will be all right," says Tjong-A-Tjoe.
As a senior, Tjong-A-Tjoe says a lot of that responsibility will fall on guys like him - the veterans.
"We’ve got to show everybody what we got, and not just be that class that didn't accomplish anything," he says.
First on the road to any accomplishment will be a rematch with Washington, a game which will carry with it a lot of hype and attention. But, players say they've got to be prepared to focus on themselves first.
"You know, you lay in the weeds and you don't say much,” says tight end Gabe Linehan. “We don't need to say anything. We're excited and we worked our butts off this summer, and we're ready to put in the work this camp and get right."
Linehan says that work will pay off for the fans showing up to Bronco Stadium.
"We're faster. We're stronger. We're bigger and we're going to give everything we've got for the fans for the school and for ourselves, and every game is going to be fun to watch," Linehan says.
