Chaminade Prep K Matt Goudis (West Hills, CA) became the thirteenth commitment for the 2011 Boise State recruiting class last Thursday when he chose to end his recruitment and become a Bronco. The tradition of great Bronco STs is set to continue with the commitment of Goudis as he's an outstanding punter as well. Early playing time and being able to handle all the kicking duties (both punting and kicking) was a big selling point for Goudis. "Being able to play early is real appealing," he said. "They also do the rugby punt and I do that too," he added.

The STs at Boise State have been outstanding under Head Coach Chris Petersen. They're consistent and exciting as well as the opposing team must always be prepared for a fake FG or punt. It's safe to say that the "trick play" tradition of the Bronco STs will continue with Matt Goudis handling the kicking duties. His coach allows him to utilize his 4.5 speed whenever the opportunity presents itself. "Our coach gives me the option to run it on 4th and 5 or less if I want to," he stated. "In my career, I've chosen to pull it down nine times and I've gotten it each time."

Goudis (6'0, 160, 4.5) was in attendance for the home opener against Oregon State last month. The atmosphere at Bronco Stadium was electric that night and it made a big impression on the future Bronco. "The atmosphere was amazing and it was cool to see how the whole town just shutdown," he said. "The Broncos are the big deal in Boise and it was just a fun atmosphere."

Matt's mom is a graduate of the University of Florida. His sister happens to be a student there now. Growing up a Gator fan, he sees the football program at Boise State growing and evolving the way it did at Florida in the early 90s. "I think moving to the Mountain West is going to help. Continuing to go undefeated will help too," he said. "There are plans to expand the stadium and to continue building the program. I want to be a part of building something that is on the rise," he added.

Goudis and his teammates at Chaminade are currently 6-0 on the season. Matt is 4/6 on FGs so far this season with a long of 54 yards.
