Yakoo Recognizes Responsibilities of O-Line

Returning starter Mario Yakoo acknowledged that the offensive line "has to be the strength of the [Boise State] offense." Yakoo and his line mates have two weeks to gel before the season opener with the University of Washington.

Boise State offensive lineman Mario Yakoo today acknowledged that his group needs to be "the strength of the offense" this fall.  Yakoo, who has played both left guard and right tackle this fall, confirmed that offensive line coach Scott Huff told his players that the best five will play.

Yakoo said the five starters on the Bronco line communicated well with each other last year, but said they need to work on details over the next two weeks.  Yakoo helped Boise State average 39.7 points, piling up nearly 214 yards a game on the ground and 280 in the air. 

Yakoo spoke briefly about his personal focus, saying he has been working on his fundamentals.  "I'm just trying to master my game," he said.
