Whittier Christian DT Jeff Worthy (La Habra, CA) committed to Boise State back in June and is now preparing for what could be a monster season as many expect him to dominate on the gridiron this fall. The future Bronco is also hoping to enroll early at Boise State and has already set the date for his official visit to The Blue. When is he visiting? "I'm already set to take an official visit to the Oregon State game," he said. "I've seen everything I need to see. This is just for my parents," he added.

Boise State has had a lot of success in recent years when it comes to getting kids to enroll early and go through spring practice. The talented DT is hoping to enroll early and knows this would greatly improve his chances in terms of getting playing time as a freshman. "I speak to Coach K and Coach Petersen about every other day," he stated. "I'm working on getting my transcripts to see if I can get up there early. I've been thinking about it for a while now and this would be the best thing to do if I want to play early."

Worthy committed to Boise State over offers from nearly the entire Pac-10. His commitment to Boise State hasn't stopped other schools from trying to recruit him. "UCLA and Oregon are still trying to recruit me," he said. "Basically, I just tell them I'm 100% committed to Boise State and I'm not going to change my mind."

Whittier Christian has never been known as a football powerhouse. In fact, they have struggled mightily throughout much of their history. Jeff is the first student-athlete from Whittier Christian to earn a full-ride athletic scholarship and he plans on leaving a lasting legacy this fall. "I want at least 35 sacks and 142 tackles. I also want to score a TD with a scoop and score or something like that," he said. "Winning a CIF championship is definitely a realistic goal for us and we want to beat Valley Christian too. We haven't beat them in twenty-one years."

Worthy (6'4, 270) already holds the sack record at Whittier Christian. He'll also hold the tackles record should he surpass 142 this fall. Still, being the anchor for the Herald defense is just not enough for Jeff. He wants to anchor the O-line as well and he'll do just that this season. "I'll be playing OL this year," he said. "You have to have a lot of mental toughness to play both positions. Playing OL will help me on defense as well since I'll know where the play is going," he added.

In 2009, Worthy racked up 19 sacks and 137 tackles.
