Saddleback College K Michael Frisina (Mission Viejo, CA) took an official visit to Boise State last weekend and was offered as a preferred walk-on while on the visit. The Bronco coaching staff is looking far and wide for a replacement for Kyle Brotzman and the competition for the starting job should be fierce. The future Bronco will enroll at Boise State this semester and is looking forward to the competition.

"We have our first team meeting on Monday and class starts on Tuesday," he said. "All you can ask for is a chance to compete. I know the kicking competition is wide open and I wouldn't want anything handed to me," he added.

The highlight of Frisina's visit to Boise State was the opportunity to sit down with Head Coach Chris Petersen and talk one-on-one.

"I told me dad and Coach (Julius) Brown that it was one of the most amazing experiences of my life to be able to sit down and talk to Coach Petersen. He seems like a good person on TV, but he's the exact same guy in real life," he stated. "Honestly, I don't know how any recruit could meet him and not commit to him. You see him as a coach, but also as a father figure."

Self-discipline, character, and hard work are three of the core values in the Bronco football program.

"Coach Petersen showed me the football pyramid of success and the core values they believe in," Frisina said. "They want good football players, but high character guys as well. We talked about how some of the guys might not be the best athletes, but they have lots of character and potential. That's most important."

Frisina was 11/18 on FG attempts at Saddleback this past season. He says he's not going to kick too many 50+ yard FGs, but he's going to be consistent on mid-range attempts.

"The first thing I'd say is I'm accurate," he said. "I'm not going to kick too many in the 55-60 range, but I'm accurate from 45 and in. I'm pretty consistent and I make all my extra points," he added.

Frisina will have three years to play two once he enrolls at Boise State for the Spring 2011 semester.
