The Broncos took out a solid Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.) squad in the Inland Division semi-finals 34-0 last Friday and will now move on to play perennial state power Corona (Calif.) Centennial.
"Our defense really stepped up tonight," Broughton said after the game Friday. "We've been stepping up all year but tonight, we really needed to since it was close for the 1st half of the game. When we stopped them on the goal line, that was huge because it was just 7-0 at the time. We really took over after that big stop and ran away with it.
"They only threw my way once or twice and that was about it. I had to let them know that my side of the field was shut down and I think I did that. Overall, it was a great team effort."
Broughton was originally scheduled to take an official visit to Oregon State this past weekend but will now take it later in the year.
"I want to go when the team is prepping for their Bowl game," Broughton said. "That way, I can see how they practice and spent more time on campus. I really like Oregon State a lot and I'm planning to commit when I get out there, I just want to see the place first.
"I have offers from Fresno State and New Mexico State too and I would like to visit those schools as well. I'm open to everyone right now, I'm still hoping more offers come in. I'm looking for a family atmosphere and a coaching staff that cares about me on and off the field. I'm going to be away from home for the first time so I really want to feel comfortable with where I'm at and make sure the coaches see me as more than a player on the field."
