Corral Conversations: Kyle Sosnowski

Capital HS ATH Kyle Sosnowski (Boise, ID) only had to make a short drive across town in order to participate in the summer conditioning program on the Boise State campus. Originally, the plan was for him to grayshirt. That changed and now he could possibly see playing time this fall. He spoke to BroncoCountry.com about the summer conditioning program as well as the upcoming start to fall practice.

Capital HS ATH Kyle Sosnowski (Boise, ID) only had to make a short drive across town in order to participate in the summer conditioning program on the Boise State campus. Originally, the plan was for him to grayshirt. That changed and now he could possibly see playing time this fall. "My main goal is to learn the playbook," he said. "I want to show them that I can play and that I'm coachable," he added.

Sosnowski also feels that the conditioning aspect is the biggest difference between HS and college. The talented ATH understands that you have to put in the time during the summer in order to be well prepared for the fall. "I think the conditioning is definitely the biggest difference," he stated. "The decks and four corner sprints are just brutal. I'd say the four corners are the toughest of the two. It's a grind, but you have to do the summer stuff to get better for the season."

The start of fall practice signals the beginning of the 2010 football season. The players will be moving into the dorms this week and the roommate assignments have already been handed out. "I'm rooming with Anthony Clarke, Bryan Douglas, and Troy Ware," Sosnowski said. "All walk-ons and recruits clicked pretty fast. It works out pretty well. You can definitely sense that family atmosphere within the program. You can see it as soon as you step in the weight room."

The Broncos enter the 2010 season in an unfamiliar position. The program has been elevated to the point where they are now expected to contend for the #1 spot in the country. Does this new outlook on the season change the mindset of the team? "What's driving us is the fact that everyone wants to win games," he said. "We just can't beat ourselves. That's the main drive. Obviously, Virginia Tech is a great team with lots of big-name athletes. We just have to go out there and do what we do," he added.

Boise State has to recruit heavily out-of-state, but there's definitely a sense of pride for the Idaho natives when it comes to wearing the Blue and Orange. "It's cool, fun, and a lot more than I thought it would be," he said. "It's crazy how many people are into Boise State and there are so many diehard fans. I take lots of pride in it. I'm going to represent Boise and Idaho to the best of my ability."

Sosnowski (6'3, 215, 4.6) was also an excellent student during his time in HS and he already knows exactly what he wants to study in college. "I'm going to major in Kinesiology," he said. "I'd like to be a strength trainer and I obviously need to study that if that's really what I want to do."
