#74, Jacob Golden, Redshirt Jr, OL

Jacob Golden

Stats

Height: 6’ 5:

Weight: 305

High School: Peoria HA, Peoria, AZ

How’d he get to The Blue™?

Mr. Golden came to Boise State a three-star prospect out of high school. He had some Ivy League offers in the form of Brown and Harvard.

Nickname

“Apple”

I don’t know why but I always think of the fruit when I hear ‘golden.’

Look-alike

Star Wars director, Rian Johnson

Career Highlights

Has played in 11 total games in a Broncos jersey. That’s about it on the notable stuff.

2022 Prospectus

Like I had mentioned yesterday for Mr. Farrar, the offensive line is going to be crucial for the Broncos’ success. You can basically copy and past that post from yesterday here. Except, well, for Mr. Golden’s issues. There is precedence for coaches to keep guys around that make really bad decisions. Not sure what’s going to happen in this case but you can almost guarantee a suspension, how long is anyone’s guess. Also the extreme: getting kicked off the team. I assume we will find out more in the coming days/weeks but, as of now, we know for sure he’s going to miss a few games.

Is he on Twitter?

He is. But in light of the current issues, I’m going to go ahead and forego its inclusion.

Completely made up fact

Mr. Golden likes to claim that his Peoria (the Arizona variety) is better than the Illinois variety because of all the desert. He likes cactuses a lot.
