Bronco Commit Competes in State Championship

Capital HS ATH Kyle Sosnowski (Boise, ID) and his teammates have dominated their opponents throughout the 2009 season. He spoke to before the State Championship game with Eagle about Capital's 2009 season, his thoughts on the (then) upcoming game against Eagle, and his future as a Bronco.

Interview conducted prior to State Championship Game:

Capital HS ATH Kyle Sosnowski (Boise, ID) and his teammates have dominated their opponents throughout the 2009 season. The Eagles have the #1 defense in the State of Idaho as they have only given up a total of 118 points this season. "We're 11-0 and just taking care of business," he said. "Everyone we've played keeps telling us we haven't played anyone yet. The defense has been solid and the offense hasn't made mistakes. It's a whole team effort so far," he added.

Kyle (6'3, 215, 4.6) has done his part to help spark the Eagles on both sides of the ball. "On offense, I have something like 16 receptions for 350 yards and 8 TDs. Defensively, I have 3 picks and 40 tackles. No one really tests me in the air this year."

The key to Capital's success all started back during the summer. "Well, it was kind of unexpected at the beginning," he said in reference to the 2009 season. "I started to see everyone get bigger at the end of summer. We just grew as a football team from that point."

Last week, the Eagles had to beat a solid Highland program in order to get to the big game. "I think we beat them 38-3," Sosnowski said. "The expectations were to get after it and this was supposed to be our toughest team to date. They have a winning tradition so there was a lot of talk. We knew we had them beat after we got rolling."

Capital will now face their toughest opponent to date. The Eagle Mustangs began their season with a close loss to Centennial and have since reeled off ten straight victories. "They are a really good football team," he stated. "They are 10-1 and have found ways to win in tight situations. Taylor (Kelly) is a real good option QB. He can really hit the gaps and make his cuts. We'll have to watch what he does both running and throwing," Sosnowski added.

The recruiting aspect remains the same for the future Bronco. "I'm 100% committed," he said. "I talk to Coach (Chris) Strausser every couple weeks. He's a real down to earth guy. He gets business done and he's funny."

Like Capital, the Broncos are also undefeated and they have made quite an impression on Sosnowski. "They are really good," he said. "They have so many threats in the running game and passing game. They can just spread the field with Titus (Young) and Austin (Pettis). They just have so much to throw at you."

The Blue takes center stage yet again on Friday night as Capital and Eagle will battle it out for the 5A state championship. will continue to have updates on Kyle Sosnowski throughout his senior season.
