California ATH Enjoys Visit To Boise

Tulare Union HS ATH Edward Dillihunt (Tulare, CA) and his family took a trip to Boise for an unofficial visit on April 6th. The versatile ATH enjoyed every minute of the visit and he hopes to gain an offer from Boise State in the future. He spoke to BroncoCountry.com about the visit to Boise and offered his thoughts on Tulare Union's upcoming spring practice.

Tulare Union HS ATH Edward Dillihunt (Tulare, CA) and his family took a trip to Boise for an unofficial visit on April 6th. It was a big success. "The visit was great," he said. "It made me want to work that much harder. It motivates me to do better."

Dillihunt (5'10, 185, 4.51) and his family surveyed all aspects of Boise. "I noticed it wasn't a real big town and it wasn't too small either," he said. "We stayed at the hotel. We took a visit and I got to see the trophies and office. I looked at the surroundings and the environment. It was all really clean," he added. The visit was conducted by (Boise State AD) Gene Bleymaier.

The visit to Bronco Stadium and having the opportunity to stand on the famous blue turf was an inspirational moment for Edward. "That really inspired me," he said. "I loved the field. Seeing it on TV and then being on the field is totally different."

What is Dillihunt looking for in a school? "School has to come first," he said. "Football is second."

The standout ATH has his goals already lined up for the spring. "I'd like to maintain my GPA between a 3.3-3.5. That's first," he said. "In football, I want to stay in the weight room and stay strong. I just want to leave it all out on the field." Currently, Dillihunt is benching 225.

Spring practice will begin soon at Tulare Union HS. Edward expects to play all over the field. "I'll be playing QB out of the pistol, safety, linebacker, and slot receiver," he said. "I feel better at slot receiver. I could see myself playing that position in college. I know it's not promised but that's where I'd like to play."

Dillihunt and his teammates are hoping to make yet another undefeated run in the 2009 season. It'll all come down to the younger players stepping up. "I think we can go undefeated again. Our younger guys will have to step up and work harder this season. Our defense should be strong."
