Paradise Valley HS QB Ryan Finley (Phoenix, AZ) verbally committed to Boise State back in March and was back on campus just two weeks ago for the annual football camp at Bronco Stadium. The talented QB led his renegade team to a 7-on-7 tournament victory and also took home the QB MVP Award.

"I was there for the entire camp," he said. "It was good since we stayed in the dorms and it was four days of what my life will be like in Boise," he added.

"We went full pads and that was a big change from the regular 7-on-7 stuff," he stated. "We had a few tournaments each night and my team ended up winning the whole thing. One thing I really liked was being able to run some plays from the playbook."

"As far as coaches, I felt it was a great opportunity to be coached by them on campus," said Finley. "They told me what I did wrong, what they liked, and they started helping me with some things that they'd like for me to work on before I arrive on campus."

Head Coach Chris Petersen broke down the film for his future QB.

"They filmed some of the routes and I got to sit down and talk to them about it," he said. "It was really some of the same stuff as before...stepping into throws, how I dip my shoulder when I throw to my left side, and they didn't like the way I was carrying the ball. They want it to be a bit higher."

"Working with Coach Smith was great," said Finley. "They expect much more of you at Boise State. They expect greatness, for you to be tuned up, and ready to learn some of that higher-end stuff. It was fun to work with him."

And he also left campus with the QB MVP Award.

"I got the QB MVP Award," he said. "It's always nice to be recognized. I was hoping I'd get something like that."

"I'm 100% committed."

The future Bronco and his teammates are currently in the middle of summer workouts and Finley (6'4, 185) has taken full control from a leadership standpoint.

"Summer workouts are going well," he said. "We're improving every day, guys are getting a lot stronger, and we've been doing some player run practices. That's a big step bonding-wise."

"I completely run the practices," he said. "We do a lot of the same stuff as normal practices, but throw in a few fun things to keep the guys interested," he added.
