Numerical Roster Countdown: Day 19, Josh Borgman

Today is my birthday, but instead of a candle blowout, I'm wishing for a Georgia blowout. Incidentally, if you want to know how old I am, refer to Antwon Murray's countdown date.

We've got 19 days until kickoff...so today we'll be highlighting #19 on the Boise State roster—Josh Borgman

#19, Josh Borgman, Junior, CB

Stats

Height: 5'7"

Weight: 172 lbs. 

High School: Centennial High School, Meridian, ID

How'd he get to The Blue™?

Well...we know that he walked-on, but we don't know much else. Broncosports conveniently neglected to post any of his high school stats or achievements, so I guess I'll have to dig a little. Looks like the diminutive corner was actually a two-time All-Idaho first teamer and finished his senior season with 34 tackles and 10 pass break-ups. Additionally, Borgman averaged nearly 30 yards/return on the punt team. Borgman had a scholarship offer from Carroll College.

Career highlights

Named Scout Team Special Teams Player of the Year in 2008. Saw time in 12 games on special teams in 2009. Appeared in 9 games in 2010, recording 7 tackles.

Career lowlight

Trying to cover 6'4" Geraldo Boldewijn in practice had to be an exercise in futility.

2011 prospectus

If any member of the Bronco football team deserves the "Ia Falo award" it's Borgman. He's an undersized local kid who's a monster on special teams. I mean, he and Falo are practically clones. Both faced the sobering reality that they weren't going to get on the field at CB, but both made lemonade from those lemons and established themselves as leaders on kick and punt coverage. You've got to admire that about them. Borgman has registered 18 special teams tackles over the last two seasons and several multiple tackle games in that span...when you think of special teams coverage, he, along with Travis Stanaway, might be the two that stand out the most. Let's face it, that's the only place we're going to see Borgman line up this Fall, with the veritable logjam at corner back, so look for him to get the put the utmost into his time on the turf and make sure the opponent doesn't ever start with good field position. If you think about it, it doesn't get a whole lot more important than that.

Completely made up fact

Borgman had to sit out Spring ball due to an injury sustained when he fell off a ladder picking strawberries. He's short, you see.
