Boise State football adds two local walk-ons to roster

The Boise State football team added three newcomers – including two locals – to the roster Monday. The team was limited to 105 players during fall camp but was able to expand the roster when school started.

The newcomers:

– Defensive lineman Sawyer Shields of Eagle High.

– Running back Tyus Zimmerman of Timberline High.

– Kicker Max O’Rourke of Rocklin (Calif.) High.

The Broncos also re-added quarterback Anthony Upshaw to the roster. He sat out fall camp and served as a student manager because of the 105-man cap.

Cornerback Eric Yates, the son of defensive coordinator Marcel Yates, was not put on the roster. He was out for fall camp with an injury but was expected to return when school started.
