Taylor Loffler: Will He Grayshirt?

Kelowna Secondary School ATH Taylor Loffler (Kelowna, BC) signed with Boise State as a member of the 2011 recruiting class back in February and is currently nursing an ACL injury that occurred last December. Recently, some have speculated that he could end up grayshirting. He spoke to BroncoCountry.com about the possibility of grayshirting and his future as a Bronco.

Kelowna Secondary School ATH Taylor Loffler (Kelowna, BC) signed with Boise State as a member of the 2011 recruiting class back in February and is currently nursing an ACL injury that occurred last December. Some have speculated that he could end up grayshirting and it appears no decision has been made at this point, but it's still a possibility.

"It's undecided right now," he said. "We won't know for a few months, but I'd be fine with it if that's what I have to do," he added.

"I was down in Boise for my spring break a couple weeks ago," he stated. "I went to a couple spring practices while I was down there. I thought the team looked pretty good. They were a little sloppy, but it looks like they're progressing."

The future Bronco partially tore his ACL during a playoff game last November and it was originally misdiagnosed as a sprain. He continued to play and said it was starting to feel better once basketball season rolled around, but disaster struck in early December.

"I just blew it out during basketball season," said Loffler. "Right now, I'd say it feels good. I've started running and everything. The only thing I can't do right now is a lot of the agility stuff. If I had to guess, I think I'll be 100% in about four months."

Loffler has a personal trainer and says that has sped up the rehab process.

"Having a trainer is great," he said. "He makes sure I'm not doing the same stuff day after day. We mix it up a lot. It's nice to have that extra push and someone that's going to help you continue to get better."

Looking back, Loffler (6'4, 210, 4.59) says the recruiting process was "long." Last summer, he attended a handful of camps and showed that he could play at a high level. The talented ATH says he knew going into the process that if Boise State offered, he was going to take it.

"I had to really put in a lot of effort. I sent out my DVD, went to the camps, and showed that I could play," he said. "I'd say the recruiting process was long, but I had fun meeting all the different coaches and going to the camps. I'm very happy to be going to Boise since I knew I was going to take it if they offered."
