Boise State numerical roster countdown 2016: Day 31, Skyler Seibold

NCAA Football: Boise State at UNLV Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports

We are down to 31 days. A full calendar month away from Boise State football. Makes me smile just thinking about it. You know what else makes me smile? TALKING about Boise State football. So let’s talk about Skyler Seibold.

#32, Skyler Seibold, RS Sophomore, S

Stats:

Height: 6’ 1”

Weight: 200 lbs (+7)

High School: Chaparral High School, Temecula, CA

How'd he get to the Blue™?

After taking a year off of school (Mr. Seibold graduated in 2013) he joined the Broncos as a walk-on in the spring of 2014. Unfortunately he did not have many FBS scholarship offers (read: none). But what he lacked in offers, he more than made up for it with “I’m going to make a roster regardless” thinking. And so it came to pass that Mr. Seibold has found himself an opportunity to play for the next University of Houston Colorado State Georgia Southern Boise State.

Nickname

“Skyrim”

I am betting he beat the game on the hardest difficulty and did not have to use anything to give him health.

Look-a-like

Yeah. I know. Really low-hanging fruit by picking Spicoli on this one (and Drew picked it last year) but sometimes it is still worth picking.

Career Highlights

Mr. Seibold’s highlights are still somewhat on the smallish side for now. While on the Boise State roster he saw action in all 13 games. In those games he had five tackles total. While a senior in high school he played running back and defensive back. He had 85 rushes for 571 yards and seven touchdowns. On defense he had 34 tackles.

2016 Prospectus

All signs are pointing to more of the same from last year. Mr. Seibold will get his chances for game time, but mostly special teams and in mop-up situations (having said that, hopefully there will be plenty of those). Even with the injuries last year Seibold was not able to get in much during a game. And, as it stands with the depth chart that was released at the Mountain West Conference Media Days, he does not crack the two-deep. And with the arrival of Kekoa Nawahine from his mission, the safety position gets even that much more crowded.

While I certainly hope that Mr. Seibold gets ample playing time in the season, it just does not look it will be while the game is still “in doubt.”

Is he on Twitter?

Yes. Right here. But he hasn’t had a new tweet in four years and it appears unlikely that he will anytime soon. But you never know.

Completely made up fact

Mr. Seibold’s hair is similar to Samson. Seibold has to grow it out to continue to have his powers. By the time he graduates we fully expect his mane to be that of pure gold.
