Chandler Hutchison, the Boise State basketball signee out of Mission Viejo had an incredible senior season—culminating in a CIF championship appearance (where they eventually fell to Long Beach Poly). Yesterday, Hutchison was recognized as the Player of the Year in the CIF-SS (Southern Section) 1AA division. The 6'6" small forward should provide an immediate lift to the Broncos (or at least prevent much as much of a slip caused by the departures of Bropleh, Elorriaga and Watkins).
Shane Swanson representin'
Shane Swanson, who suffers from spina bifida, was the Make-A-Wish recipient you probably remember from getting the
red blue carpet treatment by the Bronco football team back in October. Well, Shane is also a heckuva swimmer and in a six-degrees-of-Bronco-separation this week, seized a photo opp with Texas A&M swimmer, gold medalist AND girlfriend of one of our wonderful OBNUG posters, Breeja Larson. Of course, Shane was sporting the blue and orange...but I'm sure Breeja didn't mind a bit.
Kyle Ward, a defensive grad assistant in his first year with the Broncos (previously at TAMU with Coach Yates) is rumored to be heading back to his hometown of West Mesquite to coach ball at the high school level. Now, consider first that this news is coming from Justin Hopkins of 247 who's been both very right about things (Chase Blakley flip, Sumner-Gardner flip) and very wrong about a few things (Brad Kaaya). However, given that he appears to have a credible source at West Mesquite (Sumner-Gardner's alma mater), this story may have legs. Ward's departure wouldn't be a huge blow to the coaching staff, obviously, but he does have strong Texas ties...and those never hurt. However, he still has Yates ties and now some Bronco ties...so, well...good luck to him if this is the indeed the case.
