We are almost a quarter of the way through, everybody! Can you believe it? Even with the schedule shift we are going to keep on keepin’ on! So with 78 days left until Boise State kickoff we have—OL Julian Simpson
#78, Julian Simpson, RS Sophomore, OL
Height: 6’ 1”
Weight: 328 lbs.
High School: Gunderson High School, San Jose, California
How’d he get to the Blue™?
Drew said it best last year when he said, “I’m not really sure [how he got here].” So we are going to stick with that. Mr. Simpson is here now and looks to stay so we got that going for us.
I mean, c’mon.
French ‘other’ footballer Samuel Umtiti
86 tackles for Gunderson and played in the 2019 Bay Area All-Star football game. Looking forward to filling out this section with more later on.
The offensive line has had its struggles the last few years. There are always a TON of context to each situation so to say its the o-line (coaching) struggles that gave us fits is unfair. So perhaps the new coaching blood will be able to do some things differently and really give us the fresh air we needed to see. Time will tell, of course, but maybe Simpson has an opportunity to make an impact this year.
Is he on Twitter?
Didn’t see one.
Completely made up fact
You folks ever watch those Hot Ones interviews? Julian Simpson does. In fact he’s actually created his own hot sauce that was deemed too dangerous for the show. I wouldn’t mind trying it but I break out in sweats with just “standard” hot sauce. Who knows what would happen trying Mr. Simpson’s.
