Future Bronco Takes in Spring Practice

Prosser HS WR Kirby Moore (Prosser, WA) made the trek to Boise last week to observe his new teammates in action. Moore has been hard at work and preparing for his summer arrival in Boise ever since the end of basketball season. He spoke to BroncoCountry.com about his trip to Boise for spring practice and the recent resignation of his father as the longtime successful Head Coach at Prosser HS.

Prosser HS WR Kirby Moore (Prosser, WA) made the trek to Boise last week for spring practice and he came away impressed. "It went well," he said. "I saw practice on Wednesday and Friday. Seeing the drills and going over some stuff with Coach Pete was a real benefit."

Practices at Boise State are all about competition. "They looked really good," he said. "There was a lot of speed out there and competition on both offense and defense."

Boise State has a lot of talent returning for the 2009 season and one of those loaded positions is WR. "The WRs looked very good," he said. "Austin (Pettis) and Titus (Young) are extremely good. Everyone is just working hard to get the system down and to get better," he added.

Aaron Burks enrolled early for the spring semester at Boise State. Burks and Moore spent some time together. "I had already met Aaron (Burks) on my official. I talked to him about school. He told me it wasn't a huge adjustment. I just needed to manage my time."

Last season, QB Kellen Moore burst onto the college football scene as he led the Broncos to a 12-1 record and yet another WAC Championship. Kellen has been working hard this spring. "I thought Kellen did fine," he said. "Nothing terrible. The offense looked pretty good. The defense was getting after them but that's how it is in spring ball. He just wants to keep improving."

The future Bronco WR spent some one on one time with Coach (Bryan) Harsin. "Me and Coach Harsin went over the system a bit," he said. "We had a little meeting with Coach Pete to go over the routes and how they change with the coverage. It was a lot of detailed stuff and it was good to get some time for that," Moore added.

The Broncos find themselves on ESPN a total of six times this upcoming season. That's a new record for the Boise State program. "I saw that," Moore said. "Coach Pete was telling us about ESPN at practice on Wednesday. It's a big thing for the program. It's a lot to live up to but it's great for recruiting. It'll be beneficial for everyone."

So, what's next for Kirby? "We're on spring break," he said. "I'm taking a little time off. Besides that, everything is going well. I'm weightlifting during class and after school. I'll be getting down there this summer and I'll be in shape by August."

Recently, Tom Moore resigned as the longtime successful Head Coach at Prosser HS. "I kind of knew something was going to happen," he said. "It was tough on my parents this year with me and my brother and this year we'll both be playing. We'll be playing a lot of games on Friday nights and he knew someone else should take it if he couldn't put his full effort into it. He came here from Chicago and he's won twenty-three of the last twenty-four league titles. It's been a remarkable run. We all bought into lifting weights and dedication. It wasn't just fall or summer. We had a family atmosphere with the fans and players."
