Countdown Schmountdown: #19

The atomic clock actually says that we have just 19 days until the Ducks hit the blue turf (hard).

So, today we'll continue our countdown by briefly highlighting the Bronco player with the jersey number that corresponds with the number of days remaining till the opener. Sorry there isn't a more clear and concise way to explain that.

Drew has the weekend off, so join me as I mail in posts for him.

#19 Josh Borgman, CB

If you're looking for the Broncos' next special teams standout (and let's face it, who's not looking for Boise State's next special teams standout), Borgman might be it. The 5'8", 170-pound Centennial grad earned Scout Team ST POY honors last fall. Not bad for a walk-on whose only college offer of note was from Carroll College, home of the Fighting St. Bernard dogs.

Borgman was a two-time all-Idaho first teamer during his storied Centennial career. He will make an impact on defense before his Boise State career is done. Before the month of September is done, he should have made his presence felt on special teams, where he is sure to excel in coverage. Another area he might excel some day? Returning punts. He averaged 27 yards per return during his senior season.

In lieu of me talking ad nauseum about Borgman's skills, I'll let the glory of YouTube do it for me. And if you get bored with that, there's a collection of Randy Moller goal calls below.
