Boise State Onto Bigger And Better?

Boise State Onto Bigger And Better?

Whittier Christian HS DT Jeff Worthy (La Habra, CA) and his teammates came up just short in the CIF Championship Game, but by all accounts, the season was still a huge success as Whittier Christian finished the 2010 campaign with a 12-2 record. Worthy spoke to BroncoCountry.com about his senior season and what he hopes to accomplish during his career at Boise State.

Whittier Christian HS DT Jeff Worthy (La Habra, CA) wrapped up his senior season last Saturday night as he and his teammates came up just short in the CIF Championship Game. By all accounts, the season was still a huge success as Whittier Christian finished the 2010 campaign with a 12-2 record.

Whittier Christian couldn't contain the potent Monrovia passing attack and that was the difference in the game. "Our secondary coverage was really bad," he said. "Our offense just couldn't get anything going and they capitalized on our mistakes," he added.

The coverage in the secondary was poor, but the rushing defense was stout as Worthy and his fellow D-linemen contained the Wildcat running game. "I think they had like 50 yards rushing. They didn't run on us," he stated. "Overall, I'd give myself a B. I had 2 sacks and 8 or 9 tackles. It was a pretty good game for me."

Defensive Coordinator Pete Kwiatkowski had an in-home visit with Jeff last Wednesday. The standout DT will have the opportunity to compete for playing time right away and could find himself in the rotation as a true freshman. "Coach K told me they're going to put the best on the field and that I'll play if I'm ready to go. If not, I'll redshirt," Worthy said. "They want me an inch taller and twenty pounds heavier. I'll probably be 300 before I report."

Worthy (6'4, 280) can already feel the hype that surrounds this recruiting class. Many believe the 2011 class has the potential to be the best in Boise State history. High expectations come with that and Jeff believes this class is the one that will take Boise State to that next level. "There are rumors that this is Boise State's best recruiting class," he said. "We're the class that's moving into the bigger-better thing and we're going to be the ones to win that National Championship along with more Conference Championships."

Jeff just wants a chance to compete at the highest level. "I want to win our conference every year, get to a BCS Bowl, and just have a chance to compete for something," he said. "I just want that chance whether we win or lose. If we win, that's great. If we lose, at least we got there," he added.

Worthy finished the 2010 season with 10 sacks and 79 tackles.
