Fruitland HS ATH Alec Dhaenens (Fruitland, ID) verbally committed to Boise State a few months ago and was back in Boise for the annual football camp just last week. The talented ATH got plenty of one-on-one time with TEs Coach Scott Huff and says he feels he improved his skills during the four day camp in Boise.

"I was there for all four days," he said. "It was pretty sweet to get coached by my future coaches and there was some pretty good competition out there too," he added.

"I got a lot of coaching from Coach Huff," he stated. "I think I improved my skills and it was nice to get a glimpse at what practice will be like in the future."

"Coach Huff is a cool guy," said Dhaenens. "He's a good coach, fun to work with, and it'll be great to be coached by him. He's going to help me improve my skills a lot."

Head Coach Chris Petersen was busy with his evaluations, but made time to speak to the future Bronco on a number of occasions.

"I got to speak to Coach Pete for a bit out on the field," he said. "It wasn't much about football, but more about how everything is going, how I'm doing, things like that. It already feels like I'm part of the family."

"Coach Pete is a good guy," said Dhaenens. "He's a good coach and surrounds himself with good people. I like knowing that I'll have good people around me."

"I'm 100% committed."

Overall, Alec says he was pleased with his performance at the camp, but also feels there's always room for improvement.

"Yeah, I think I performed well, but I can always do better," he said. "My goal right now is to just improve as an athlete. I want to get stronger, but also get quicker too."

"It was a lot of fun to go out there and show the coaches what I can do," he said. "That's probably the only time I've been able to show them my stuff. I thought the 7-on-7 was pretty fun and I enjoyed the 1-on-1's too."

Alec will now turn his attention to summer workouts as he and (future Bronco) Joey Martarano look to lead Fruitland to a state championship in 2012.

"We have a couple 7-on-7 tournaments coming up," he said. "We play against bigger schools...a lot more competition. I'm hoping we can win our tournament this year."

"I'm just focused on football and getting ready for my senior year."
