The talented WR spoke to BroncoCountry.com and offered his thoughts on his senior season to date.

Rocky Mountain HS WR Dallas Burroughs (Meridian, ID) committed to Boise State back in June and is currently having a breakout season for the Grizzlies. Burroughs and his teammates will play Centennial in the state semifinals on Friday as they look to advance to the state championship in just the third season of the program. The talented WR believes the team is currently meeting their expectations. "I think we're meeting expectations," he said. "I thought we'd be pretty good going into the season. We have a real shot at taking state," he added.

Rocky Mountain defeated Centennial by a score of 16-13 back on October 8th. The Grizzly offense got into a rhythm following that game as they haven't scored less than 44 points since that meeting. "Centennial is a really good team," he stated. "We've got to get fired up on offense and play well. We weren't as good on offense the first time and we're rolling now."

The future Bronco has been nominated for the Gatorade Player of the Year award for the State of Idaho. In 2009, he had 48 receptions for 582 yards and 4 TDs. That's not a bad season by any means, but his current season to date is nothing short of spectacular. Burroughs has 1,120 yards receiving, 11 TD receptions, 2 rushing TDs, and 1 TD pass going into Friday's game. "I feel I'm way better than last year," he said. "I got faster and I run better routes now. I've just made a lot of good plays this year."

The Grizzlies defeated Eagle by a score of 70-42 in their last game. Eagle won the state championship in 2009 and knocking them off their throne is one moment that really stands out to Dallas. "Our last game against Eagle stands out," Burroughs said. "We whooped up on them. It was just awesome. I had 4 receiving TDs, 1 rushing TD, and 1 throwing TD," he added. Overall, he had 297 all-purpose yards in their win.

Dallas (5'9, 170, 4.4) is a quiet kid by nature and just lets his performance on the field do the talking. Bronco fans can expect Burroughs to leave it all out on the field in each and every game. "I'm committed and I work hard," he said. "I just use my speed and stuff," he added with a laugh.
