BOISE, Idaho - Monday's practice opened up the second week of fall camp for Boise State. Also leading off the new week are redshirt junior linebacker Ben Weaver and freshman quarterback Garrett Collingham as the Ford Lithia Camper and Newcomer of the Day, respectively.
A two-time Academic All-Mountain West selection (2013-14), Weaver shined at linebacker last season, making 62 tackles (41 solo) including a pair of sacks and 3.0 tackles-for-loss. Over the past two seasons, the Klein, Texas native has registered 92 tackles with seven of those going for a loss.
Collingham is a local product, having starred at Mountain View High School in Meridian. There, he helped lead the Mavericks to the 5A state championship game last year, throwing for 1,655 yards and 12 touchdowns while also rushing for 958 yards and 11 scores.
