Bronco Beat

Boise State to honor Kellen Moore but won’t retire his jersey

There will be 11s everywhere at the Boise State football team’s Spring Game, but the school won’t retire former quarterback Kellen Moore’s jersey.

Moore, who wore No. 11, will be honored during a pre-scrimmage tribute at 5:11 p.m. on April 11 at Albertsons Stadium. The Spring Game begins at 5:15 p.m.

Boise State’s press release indicated Moore will be honored with a video tribute and will be on hand with his family for a special presentation from coach Bryan Harsin.

A school official said the Broncos won’t break their years-long policy of not retiring numbers. The only retired football jersey is No. 12, for former quarterback Jim McMillan. He played in the 1970s.

Fans 18 and under who wear No. 11 jerseys to the scrimmage will receive free admission. General-admission tickets are $10.

Moore posted a 50-3 record as the Broncos’ starting quarterback from 2008 to 2011.

The university plans to capitalize on the attention brought by the Spring Game with its first Bronco Day on April 11. Details of that event are still being finalized.
