BOISE, Idaho - As Day Three of Boise State's Fall Camp comes to a close, Lithia Ford presents the Newcomer of the Day, freshman cornerback Ladarryl Blair, and the Camper of the Day, redshirt junior punter Sean Wale.
The Broncos wrapped up their third practice of camp, with Wale providing a strong performance that earned him Camper of the Day honors from the coaching staff. Last season, Wale averaged 42.0 yards per punt and dropped 20 of his punts inside opponents' 20-yard lines.
Blair, the Newcomer of the Day, played in the secondary as well as at wide receiver and quarterback as a prep. As a senior at South Oak Cliff High School, he caught 33 passes for 447 yards and seven touchdowns, and rushed 24 times for 171 yards and three scores en route to earning all-district honors. He played his previous seasons at Dallas Kimball High School, throwing for over 1,300 yards and 14 touchdowns as a junior while registering 72 tackles and four interceptions as a sophomore, earning all-district recognition each year.
