Kekula’ekahi Victorino became a Boise State football fan because his Boise relatives kept sending him Bronco gear as gifts.

So when Victorino, of Lake Tapps, Wash., started looking at colleges, Boise State was No. 1.

The Broncos cemented that standing when they offered to let Victorino walk on as a dedicated long snapper. Victorino joined the team this month and spends the entire practice working on his long snapping, or serving as the quarterbacks’ snapper during drills like 7-on-7 and 1-on-1.

“I always told (my friends) I wanted to go to college and snap,” Victorino said.
