It’s day 96 and we are checking in on our first special teams player, Haden Hoggarth.
#96, Haden Hoggarth, RS Senior, K
Weight: 190 lbs.
High School: Seabreeze High School, Ormond Beach, FL; Bethune Cookman University
How’d he get to The BlueTM?
Haden came to Boise State from Bethune Cookman (more or less). His last season playing was his red shirt freshman year in 2014. He must have taken a couple years off before being offered a preferred walk-on spot with in the Broncos in the 2017 class.
Lol do kickers even wear knee pads? @NCAAFootball Come at me https://t.co/RkssIoROsC— Haden Hoggarth (@Haden_Hoggarth) May 2, 2018
Well played, Haden. Well played.

Haden had an impressive junior campaign for the Broncos, earning All-MW Honorable Mention after completing 18-23 FG (78.3%) with a long of 41 and 57-57 PATs.
During his freshman season at Bethune Cookman, he made 3-6 FGs and 25-26 PATs.
Considering that Haden is one of two kickers on the team, I think it’s safe to say his spot is secure. HOWEVER, I do anticipate Joel Velazquez to get in at least a few attempts so he can gain some experience since Haden is graduating this year.
Is he on Twitter?

He’s putting in some legit work.
Completely made up fact
Haden spent the 3 years between leaving Bethune Cookman and joining the Broncos in Tibet with Shaolin monks on honing his skills, which included blind-folded kicking on wooden posts in the Himilayas.
