Cosumnes Oaks HS DE Robert Ash (Elk Grove, CA) took his official visit to Boise State last month as he watched the Broncos open the 2010 home schedule with a solid win over Oregon State. The talented DE was one of five current commits in attendance at the game and he certainly came away impressed with the performance on the field. "Man, I was sitting there with Jeff Worthy and we smiled the whole game saying that would be us next year," he said. "We'll be a part of that and we'll working hard to get better. It was eye opening," he added.

The atmosphere in Boise was electric with ESPN College GameDay in town. Unfortunately, Robert arrived just after the show ended. He still got to see plenty of tailgating as Bronco Nation was out in full-force all day. "I saw all the fans and that was real cool. It was like an NFL game on a college campus," he said. "I watched the team warm up and everything after that. That was fun."

Ash brought his mom along on the trip. Both of Robert's parents have a strong background in education so it was important for her to get a good look at the school and to meet the coaching staff. "That was her first time and she loved it," he stated. "Coach Petersen spoke to her about the school, family, and all sorts of things. I was already in 100% so I was glad to see that she is too."

Jeff Worthy and Jay Ajayi told BroncoCountry that Head Coach Chris Petersen already seemed like a "father figure" to them. Robert Ash feels the same way. "I don't see him as a coach anymore. I see him as more of a dad," Ash said. "He's a role model. He'll coach you up in football but he'll make you a better person with integrity."

The Cosumnes Oaks Wolfpack are currently 4-4 this season. Being .500 isn't bad at all when you consider the fact that they're fielding their first senior class this season. Robert and his teammates are hoping to make it a memorable one that includes an appearance in the state playoffs. "We want to be able to say we played our best in every single game," he said. "Our goal is to definitely get to the playoffs," he added.

Robert (6'3, 265, 4.89) has led by example all season. He has 58 tackles and 10 sacks through eight games.
