Spring has sprung for the Boise State football team.
The Broncos will host their first spring practice on Monday, March 11.
The team has announced 15 practice dates, including the annual spring game at Bronco Stadium, which is slated for Saturday, April 13.
In the meantime, the Broncos have been working out and participating in PRPs (player-run-practices) twice per week.
"I'd say about half way through winter break, we're already ready to play football again," laughed safety Darian Thompson.
"It's been kind of weird just going out to lift and workout and stuff like that, but now practice is actually about to start up."
"There are guys in the weight room competing hard every day," said senior tackle Charles Leno Jr.
"Guys are just out here trying to compete and get a job."
For the first time in a while, Boise State didn't lose any position coaches over the offseason to other job opportunities. Coaching consistency is a welcome change of pace, especially on the offensive side of the ball.
"I think it's definitely more of a comfort zone for everyone," explained wideout Kirby Moore.
"For the quarterbacks, the wide receivers... the [whole] offense. We've been working a lot, throwing after, and watching film on things that we maybe could've done better during the season."
"This year's brand of Broncos is going to be very fast," said Leno Jr.
"We're always going to be physical, but I'd say this year is one of the fastest groups we've ever had."
