Today’s entrant doesn’t actually have no. 86. So Mr. Collingham is here for two reasons: 1) 86 is currently vacant, so we needed someone to fill this spot; 2) the no. 5 is double-booked (Evan Tyler). And since Mr. Collingham is (now) a TE, being in the 80’s isn’t exactly much of a stretch. So, without further ado,—Garrett Collingham
#86, Garrett Collingham, RS Senior, TE
High School: Mountain View HS, Meridian, ID
How’d he get to The BlueTM?
He was a walk-on who eventually earned himself a scholarship. These are always pretty great stories and so it’s cool to see a local kid being able to do it.
Congratulations Garrett! Excellent student, high character, disciplined, tough, hard worker & Bleeds Blue! In our program & in real life Hard Work does not go unnoticed! #BleedBlue #BroncoWay pic.twitter.com/e1KGCUAvTj— Bryan Harsin (@CoachHarsin) May 28, 2019
Casey went with this last year so I figured, sure.
Footballer Jordi Alba?
In a Boise State jersey he’s done some things. Notably: Academic All-Mountain West (Fall 2016 and 2017); Mountain West Scholar-Athlete (2016-17 and 2017-18). Last year was his breakout year with 5 catches, 58 yards, and a TD. He also rushed for 4 yards and a TD as well. And to top that off he had two assisted tackles last year. So that’s cool.
There are only six TEs on the roster. For some reason I didn’t realize that. Collingham found his niche in this group last year after bouncing around the roster in different positions. He should see some decent time as a pass-catching option for whoever is slinging the rock. At 228 he doesn’t seem to be too primed to be a blocking-TE but I can only assume he had to make sure he could block to ensure that scholly. At any rate, look for Mr. Collingham to see a decent amount of time on the field.
Is he on Twitter?
Nope! Which means his life is probably fuller because of it.
Completely made up fact
It is a widely known fact that Snow Leopards cannot roar. But that’s because Mr. Collingham has kept it all for himself.
