Troy (6'2, 170, 4.55) still keeps in close contact with the coaches at Boise State. "I talk to Coach Petersen and Coach Pease each week," Ware said. "I called him (Chris Petersen) about a week ago and told him congrats on the game. He said they really could've used me out there since Austin Pettis was hurt."
Assistant Head Coach Brent Pease made the trip down to Vista for an in-home visit with Ware and his family in December. "Coach Pease came the week of our last game," he said. "It was pretty good having him at my house. We just talked about playing football, grades, and what I need to work on. My dad thinks I'm in good hands."
The future Bronco played in an offense dominated by the running game, but the Boise State coaches took notice of his talent at the football camp in Boise last summer. "Coach Pease likes my size and just wants me to get stronger," he stated. "He likes how tall I am and that I have real good hands."
The 2009 season was one to remember for Troy and his teammates as they surpassed all expectations and made it to the championship game. "We went to the championship and lost," he said. "I had 11 catches for like 115 yards in that game. They were stopping our run so we started throwing the ball a lot. Our final record was 10-3," Ware added. Troy was the 'go to' WR for Vista as he racked up 45 catches for 650 yards and 6 TDs.
Boise State fans can expect Ware to be a playmaker on the field. "What I do best is run great routes, go up for the ball, and make pretty spectacular catches."
