Thanks for the memories, Matt Slater [Senior Day Tribute]

OBNUG is honoring each Boise State senior this week with a favorite memory. Got one to share? Sign up

Offensive linemen don't get much glory, but they're the linchpin to any successful team. A good offense always starts with the line and Boise State's line has been great.

After the jump, I'll share some thoughts on senior #72 Matt Slater

Matt Slater is the offensive linemen to offensive linemen. While Boise State has had some linemen in the past to get some glory like Ryan Clady or Darren Colledge, Matt Slater has toiled without much glory even though he has been one of the most valuable offensive linemen in his career. He has been the utility linemen, ready to jump in at a moment's notice. He was the one to replace Brenel Myers when Myers went down with an injury in the opener.

Matt hails from St. Paul, Minnesota and was lightly recruited out of high school. He had some offers from some Division II schools but held out for an opportunity to walk on to a Division I school. Boise State gave him that opportunity.

So, thank you Matt Slater for always being ready to play. Many players would be discouraged by the inconsistent nature of playing time as a reserve. But it takes a special player to stay focused and sacrifice themselves and their own glory for the betterment of the team.
