OBNUG is honoring each Boise State senior this week with a favorite memory. Got one to share? Sign up.
Kyle Brotzman was a walk-on from Meridian, Idaho. A local kid who wanted to play for Boise State. He came on as a freshmen in 2007, and all he did was successfully make the first 118 PAT's of his career, in a row. He also went 16 of 18 in FG's in 2007, setting the tone for what would be a remarkably consistent career. Kyle currently has scored 425 points in the FBS. The most of any active player, a Boise State record, as well as a WAC record, outpacing former Hawaii and NFL kicker, Jason Elam. His career FG percentage is just under 74%.
But that is only his prowess as a placekicker. Any good Bronco fan knows Brotzman has been much more than that to Boise State football. Brotzman has assumed all kicking duties since his freshmen year. Being the main placekicker, punter, and handling kickoffs. And he's been great at all three, as well as a Lou Groza nominee. Bronco fans have been fortunate to see such a thing, and we'll miss him when he's gone. Sure there were his left-hash woes. And no one will forget last Friday anytime soon. But no one is going to forget this either;
Kyle Brotzman, thanks for all you did for your Boise State Football team. All of Bronco Nation applauds your contributions. We hope all the best for you in the future. Please leave your thoughts and memories about Kyle in the comments.
