How’d he get to The Blue™?
In a somewhat of a circuitous route, Mr. Neal went to a prep school after graduating high school, then found his way to San Bernardino Valley College out of California. In the midst of the pandemic, this really put a strain on a lot of folks and their options. Coach Kenneth Lawler, an assistant coach for the Wolverines, used to be a coach at Boise State from 2000 to 2002 which, wouldn’t you know it, was at the same time as a young buck by the name of Andy Avalos was playing for the Broncos. This long-time connection help Mr. Neal get a tryout for the Broncos and a spot on the roster.
Per 247Sports Boise State was the only offer. Good.
This works on a ton of levels. Mostly I’m really running out of ideas.

Finding stats on Mr. Neal is someone a rough one. Here’s to adding some stuff to this section next year.
CB is going to be tough. When you glance at the current roster, there really isn’t a consistent starter among the seven listed. So either that means it’s going to be uber-competitive this fall, or we may see some True freshman see some time. For my money, I wouldn’t bet on the freshman route given just how tough the position is in general. This means Mr. Neal has a good chance of seeing some quality time. Here’s hoping anyway.
Is he on Twitter?
Yep. And he’s good at predicting champions.
Completely made up fact
Mr. Neal is a big fan of Shark Week on animal planet. His goal is to see a Greenland Shark, animals that could potentially live up to 500 years, at least once in his lifetime. Sounds like he will have plenty of time to do so.
