'Ready To Hit You In The Mouth'

Saguaro HS DE Justin Jungblut (Scottsdale, AZ) is one of the most highly anticipated 2009 signees following his unbelievable senior season as he helped the Sabercats win yet another state championship. Jungblut has been working hard all summer as the start of his Bronco career gets closer by the day. He spoke to BroncoCountry.com about the summer workouts and his future as a Bronco.

Saguaro HS DE Justin Jungblut (Scottsdale, AZ) is one of the most highly anticipated 2009 signees following his unbelievable senior season as he helped the Sabercats win yet another state championship. The standout DE racked up 72 tackles and 12 sacks last season and now he's thrilled to bring his talent to The Blue in Boise. "They win," he said. "That one of the main reasons I picked Boise. I wanted to win. I went to one of the best in HS and now going to Boise State is great," he added.

Jungblut (6'6, 250, 4.99) has been working hard all summer as he prepares to begin his career as a Bronco. "The workouts are going good," he said. "I'm holding my own and I'm in the best shape of my life going into fall camp. There's just no comparison from HS to college between intensity and conditioning."

Fall camp begins this week and it'll be yet another first for the new Bronco DE. "I think it's going to be pretty chaotic the first week or two," he said. "It'll be the whole HS to college thing again. It's just a whole new level of intensity."

Winning has become second nature to Justin following a Sabercat career that saw he and his teammates win four state championships and dominate the competition each and every week. Looking back, there's a lot to be proud of over Jungblut's HS career. "My last game at my HS stands out," he said. "The last game we had there was the quarterfinals and I had one of my best games of the year. I went up against a guy much bigger than me and dominated the whole game," Jungblut added.

Boise State has one of the best turnouts each year for the summer conditioning program. The incoming 2009 recruiting class are all onboard with the hard work and dedication that goes along with being a Bronco. "We all buy into being a team, friendships, and being like brothers," he said. "It all takes care of itself. The incoming freshmen have been coming in for camp. It's allowed for a bunch of time to hangout and become friends."

The Broncos will kickoff the 2009 football season with a nationally televised game against Oregon. Justin is already starting to feel the excitement. "Man, it's going to be crazy," he said. "We walked by after working out at the stadium and they've been putting in more bleachers. I think it'll be the biggest game ever at Boise State."

Speed has been a constant recruiting theme for Boise State over the past few years. Head Coach Chris Petersen seems to upgrade the amount of speed with each recruiting class. Bronco fans expect the 2009 defense to be solid once again and Jungblut feels the same way. "Fast," he said. "That's the one word to describe the defense. We play fast. We're ready to go play fast, hard, and hit you in the mouth."
