You're Cleared For Takeoff, Mr. Feeder!

He would have helped Boise State's men's tennis team last year. Yet again and again, the NCAA stalled on clearing him for action. That will not be a concern this coming season however, as Kean Feeder has been cleared to play in 2007!

This is the biggest Bronco tennis news since 1997 when Greg Patton's guys shocked the tennis world by beating UCLA in Westwood, and rising to #2 in the nation in big time college tennis. The '97 team was strong but not even close to the 2006 Bronco's. This could be a national championship year for Boise State.

Kean Feeder has victories over many of the top ranked players in Division 1, including current #2 in the nation, 6-9 senior, John Isner from Georgia, past #1 in the nation, Ryler De Heart of Illinois, and past #1 in the nation, K.J. Hippensteel of Stanford .

Finally, the 2005 top recruiting class in the country, Clancy Shields, Blake Boswell, and Kean Feeder, will be able to play together as a team.

There's more. Stanley Sarapanich will probably be cleared by the NCAA for play by the end of this semester, ready to go in January. Grades were the issue. Stanley is a California JC All-American, a California State Champion, ranked at one time as the #4 player in the state.

Who will be #1? Kean is no lock. All-American Luke Shields has beaten Kean in the past. Clancy Shields has a win over the #1 junior tennis player in the world, Donald Young. Patton's players are talented and deep, and who-plays -which-position will be as much fun to watch as the matches.
