What we learned: Kellen Moore might get playcalling responsibilities at the line of scrimmage.
Petersen and offensive coordinator Bryan Harsin said it’s possible Moore will be given two plays in certain situations and the authority to choose the right play at the line of scrimmage.
Similarly, the University of Idaho is planning on doing the same for QB Nathan Enderle. His two plays: "Don't Throw an Inteception" and "False Start."
What we learned #2: Everyone wants to be a Bronco.
Nine new players were added to the team yesterday. The most notable: CB Jerrell Gavins, a transfer from JUCO powerhouse El Camino College in California. Gavins held down the nickelback spot and returned kicks. He'll have four years to play three, so he may see a redshirt this season.
Here are the rest of the newcomers, courtesy of IPT's Dave Southorn: Dustin Kamper, LB, Nampa Christian; Trevor Harmon, defensive back; Preston Minter, RB, Timberline; Jake Johnston, receiver; Dane Turner, defensive back; Joey Paul, linebacker; Chris Roberson, long snapper; Billy Derome, linebacker.
What we learned #3: Richie Brockel is more man than I will ever be
Senior fullback Richie Brockel, who was injured during spring ball, flipped a blocking sled up and over at the beginning of Wednesday's practice and made a juggling catch in traffic toward the end.
Camper of the day
"Shea is the silent assassin," Coach Petersen said. "He comes out and doesn't say a whole lot, but he always goes full speed. We have high hopes for him. He did a great job for us last year, and we know he's going to be even better for us this year."
