Boise State Football: Inquiring Minds for the Spring Game




Does the aggressiveness of Hank Bachmeiers fit in with the tempo attack of Boise States? Or will Jack Sears deep ball win the day? That’s not Andy Avalos’ focus at the moment.

BOISE, Idaho Thursday, April 8, 2021.

Coach Andy Avalos set the table for Boise States Spring Game Saturday with a press conference Wednesday. And as curious as everyone is about the Broncos quarterback derby, Avalos returns to recurring themes when he talks about Hank Bachmeier and Jack Sears. It doesn’t start with how they perform on the field, Avalos said. It starts with their leadership off the field, how they bring boys together. We were very proud of that entire (QB) group. An extension of that conversation is center Kekani Holomalia-Gonzalez. Avalos said Holomalia-Gonzalez is locked up with the quarterbacks. That relationship between the central quarterback is huge, Avalos said.

Avalos said the wide receivers were impressive at exercise, and the first name he mentioned was junior Stefan Cobbs. It seems like anyone predicting an outbreak has been right all along. Steph Cobbs had a really good spring, Avalos said. It doesn’t matter which quarterbacks are in there. We’ve only seen Cobbs play a few times in the last two years, but there have been some big ones. The first catch of his career saw him take a screen pass and work his way to a 44-yard touchdown in 2019 against Portland State. But he didn’t have another reception that year until he earned two against Washington in the Las Vegas Bowl. Cobbs only had four catches last year, but they went for 72 yards, including a 43-yarder in Hawaii. Eyes is number 5 on Saturday.


Khalil Shakir should be on the shelf this spring due to a healing hamstring, but Avalos said on Wednesday he’s back in training, with individual and 7-on-7 exercises (though he won’t be appearing in the Spring Game). As animated as Shakir was during spring football’s first practice last month, you knew they wouldn’t be able to keep Shakir out for long. Billy Bowens was also selected by Avalos in the broad receiver corps. Little-known fact: Bowens first stat as Bronco was an 11-yard rush in 2018, his only touch of the season. He was only active for three games that season, making him eligible for another year.


Former Boise State star Avery Williams will be honored with the 10th annual Jet Award tonight in Omaha, NE. It is named after Johnny The Jet Rodgers, the great Nebraska player who was one of the best gamblers in college football history. The keynote speaker is 1982 Heisman Trophy winner and former NFL star Herschel Walker. Between kicks and kickoff, Williams scored nine touchdowns on runbacks like Bronco. He even started and ended his career with a point return TDan 81-yarder in the 2017 season opener against Troy, and a 69-yard foray against San Jose State in the Mountain West championship game last December.

College of Idaho has its sights set on the NAIA Playoffs this spring, and Carroll College will be in the way on Saturday. With a win over the Saints in Helena, MT, the Coyotes will take the outright Cascade Conference Championship and an automatic berth in the postseason. The Yotes enter three Players of the Week with two of the competitions: Capital High grad Ryan Hibbs in offense and former Kuna High star Caden Cobb in special teams after the come-from-behind win in Eastern Oregon. From the Department Did You Know: That win was the 300th win in program history (dating back to 1905).


You’ve probably heard of it: Boise-born Luke Mylymok scored the winning goal on March 27 in the longest game in NCAA Hockey Championships history, a five-hole shot in fifth overtime to give Minnesota-Duluth a 3-2 victory over North. Dakota. That launched UMD in the Frozen Four, hockey’s answers to the Final Four, against UMass tonight. Mylymok is the son of one of the Idaho Steelheads all-timers, Jeremy Mylymok, whose retired No. 4 shirt hangs on the wall in Idaho Central Arena. Luke played for the Junior Steelheads before climbing the hockey ladder. Minnesota-Duluth is not Cinderellathe Bulldogs are for the eighth time and for the fourth consecutive season in the Frozen Four.

THIS DAY IN SPORTApril 8, 2013:

Rick Pitino becomes the first head coach ever to win a national championship at two different schools, leading Louisville to an 82-76 victory over Michigan in an entertaining NCAA title game. The Cardinals, who were the No. 1 overall seed in the tournament, won their first national crown since 1986 the same day Pitino was named an inductee in the Basketball Hall of Fame. The word shame came into play when Pitino was involved in a federal investigation into bribes to recruits, which led to Louisville firing him for good reason in October 2017. He now of course coaches at Iona.
