El Dorado HS TE Trevor Peterson (Placerville, CA) signed an LOI with Boise State this past February and he's eager to begin his career on The Blue. Peterson and many other future Broncos will report soon as preparation begins for the 2009 season. "June 1st is when I report," he said. "I'm excited. I can't wait to get up there. I've been real busy getting ready to graduate." Trevor will be in Boise for three weeks before heading back home for a quick summer break. His official report date for the start of fall practice is August 4th.

The standout TE was thrilled when he was finally able to sign on the dotted line and become a Bronco. "Signing Day was exciting," he said. "It was a relief too. It was a dream of mine for a long time. I signed that morning with my parents at home," Peterson added.

The 2008 season was a struggle for Peterson and his teammates. Injuries piled up quickly for the Cougars and Peterson found himself playing both RB and QB. "We finished 3-7," he said. "It was a long season but a bit of a learning thing as well. I didn't play TE at all. I played QB in three or four games because our QB dislocated his shoulder." Trevor was rewarded for his solid season with an invite to play in the Greater Sacramento Area All-Star Game. "I played TE and it was great. I had 4 catches for 70 yards. We beat them pretty good."

Peterson (6'4, 220) had the opportunity to watch his future teammates in action over spring break as he made the trip to Boise for spring practice. "It was definitely good to see the tempo they play at," he said. "I now have an idea of what the TEs do and the structure of the practice. It was good to see that and learn the offense," he added.

The future Bronco has his own workout plan in place. "I'm working out," he said. "I have a weightlifting class and a morning program. I've been doing the running on my own."

Trevor has kept in close contact with his future coaches at Boise State. "Coach (Jeff) Choate and Coach (Chris) Strausser are who I talk to most. Usually, they're just checking in and seeing how the workouts are going."

What does it mean to be a Bronco? "I'll see it as a responsibility to live up to the high caliber of play and dedication to the team. It's a sense of pride."
