Fruitland HS LB Joey Martarano (Fruitland, ID) verbally committed to Boise State in June of 2011 and was back on campus this past weekend for the annual Junior Day event. This offered Martarano some on-on-one time with the coaching staff as they watched film and discussed how they see him fitting in with the program.

"I got there right as they were splitting up groups," he said. "I was able to watch film with Coach Gregory, tour the campus, watch the spring game, and then speak to the coaches for a little while afterwards," he added.

"Overall, it was a lot of fun," he stated. "I went last year, but paid much closer attention to everything this year. I thought everything was real good."

"I thought Blake (Renaud) had a great game," said Martarano. "I thought it was fun getting to see how they teach and their philosophy for the LBs. I was able to get familiar with everything."

LB or DE? He says LBs Coach Bob Gregory believes he can play either position.

"Coach Gregory believes I could play either one," he said. "I know they want to switch me, put me in different spots, and let me rush the passer a bit from the outside. I think that would be fun."

"I thought Coach Gregory and Coach K did a great job of coaching out there," he said. "They're really nice guys off the field, but really intense on the field. I like that."

He went on to say that he believes Head Coach Chris Petersen is the best coach in the country and that he's looking forward to playing for him.

"I'm really excited to play for Coach Pete," said Martarano. "I feel he's the best coach in the country. I'm really pumped to play for him."

"My dad loves Coach Pete," he said. "We've talked to other coaches out there, but he believes everything Coach Pete says and feels he's the most trustworthy."

And lastly, the future Bronco says he'll be back in Boise in just a couple months for the annual football camp at Bronco Stadium.

"Yeah, I'll be in Boise for the camp," he said.
