Bronco Beat

Three walk-ons, including QB Hoppe, leave Boise State football team

Three walk-ons have left the Boise State football program: quarterback Richard Hoppe, tailback Jamel Hart and tight end Jackson Reed. Hoppe was brought in last year essentially as an extra throwing arm because of Ryan Finley’s shoulder injury. He received very few reps in the spring.

I count 82 scholarship players, which should allow the Broncos to reward a couple of walk-ons. Defensive end Beau Martin and tight end Jake Hardee have been on the bubble in the past.
