The standout QB got to see what the Bronco football program is all about and the visit was a complete success. "We flew out Friday morning and had lunch with Coach Pete and Coach Harsin," he stated. "We then toured the campus and watched the walk-through. We went to dinner after that and the next day I hung out with the team. It was a lot of fun and we flew out on Sunday morning."
One aspect that stood out to Grant in the victory over Idaho was the outstanding playcalling on offense. "The playcalling impressed me most. Idaho would blitz and then there were would be a screen pass to (Titus) Young for 30 yards."
The family atmosphere at Boise State was noticeable once again. "I felt the family atmosphere," Hedrick said. "Everyone is close together if you're a Bronco fan and everyone seemed to like each other even with the rivalry."
Grant (6'1, 183, 4.56) was originally planning to take his official visit to Boise State following the 2009 season. The first round BYE in the playoffs allowed him to visit for the Idaho game and now it's back to business. "We have our first game on Friday," he said. "We play Scappoose." The Central Panthers are currently 9-1 and they are looking to bring a state championship back to Independence. A win on Friday night will set up a rematch from week one against the only team to defeat Central this season. "We'll play Marist again in the quarterfinals if we win," he said. "It's motivating us a bit. We want to play them again."
The future Bronco garnered Second Team All-State honors as a junior and he's certainly on pace for First Team consideration. "I think I have like 2,400 yards passing, 32 TDs, and 1 INT," Hedrick said. "I have like 1,300 yards rushing and 15 TDs," he added.
