Senior Day Tribute: #28 Jarvis Hodge

I can honestly say that there are very few players I enjoy watching more than Jarvis Hodge. I know that is an odd statement to make about a backup running back, but it's the truth. Jarvis Hodge epitomizes what I love about college football, and Boise State football in general. Through five years of playing behind other talented running backs, Jarvis Hodge has taken full advantage of his senior year to show what he can do.

Take this hit, which is just as highlight worthy as any Doug Martin has delivered:

 

I can only imagine how frustrating it must be to stand on the sidelines as new running backs continually pass you up. It's easy to admire someone who is carrying the ball twenty times a game and pounding defenses in the first quarter. But it is equally, if not more, admirable, to be the guy in the background. The guy who doesn't get carries unless the game is in hand, but still comes to practices and plays as hard as anyone out there. The guy who doesn't begrudge others their bigger roles. A guy who takes his role seriously, not because of the glory it brings, but because it is important to the team as a whole.

Jarvis Hodge could have quit years ago, if he was in this for the glory. But instead he stuck with it for the love of the game, and the satisfaction of being a cog, no matter what size, in the Bronco machine.

So whenever he carries the ball, I cheer extra hard. Because guys like him deserve every moment in the sun that they can get. Jarvis Hodge, we salute your hard work and discipline, and wish you well in all your endeavors.
