Boise State camp: Lawrence still giving offense a hard time

The Mountain West sack leader is becoming more consistent in camp.

— Boise State junior defensive end Demarcus Lawrence continued to disrupt the Broncos' offense Friday.

Lawrence, who has been a force from the first day of fall camp, stripped tailback Jay Ajayi on fourth-and-1 to stop the first-team offense's game-like drive.

He has repeatedly harassed the quarterbacks - showing the consistency that was missing last season, when he led the Mountain West with 9.5 sacks.

Lawrence also led the team with 13.5 tackles for loss and was fifth with 48 tackles.

Coach Chris Petersen named him the camper of the day at on Friday.

"Demarcus has had great energy out here," Petersen said. "He's running to the ball and he has had a relentlessness about him all camp - exactly the way we want our defensive linemen to play."

The Broncos will hold their open practice/scrimmage at 7 p.m. Sunday at Bronco Stadium. Gates open at 6. Admission is free.
