Sheldon HS DE Sam McCaskill (Eugene, OR) signed with Boise State as a member of the 2012 class in February and is currently preparing for his future as a Bronco. The talented DE says he plans on modeling himself after (former Bronco) Shea McClellin & intends to work just as hard as he did during his time as a Bronco. So, how are the workouts going right now?

"They're going great," he said. "I've been doing the program they sent me, running on the field, power lifting, and working in some cardio and swimming," he added.

"I'm having fun," he stated. "I just can't wait to get there. It's really cool that we're able to get that head start during the summer. It'll be an exciting time this summer and great preparation for the upcoming season."

"I keep in touch with all the coaches," said McCaskill. "I spoke to Coach Petersen yesterday and I keep in touch with Coach K, Coach Gregory, and Coach Avalos."

The future Bronco says he congratulated his future head coach on what turned out to be a great NFL Draft for the Broncos.

"I just wanted to congratulate him," he said. "Coach Petersen was thrilled that so many guys got drafted. A lot of us were hoping that Kellen Moore would get drafted, but I know he's going to do a great job with the Lions. To see Shea McClellin go at #19 was just crazy."

"Shea McClellin is a role model for me," said McCaskill. "He put in a lot of hard work at Boise State and I plan on doing the same thing. I'm going to model myself after him."

And McCaskill was also in Boise just recently as he attended the spring game last month.

"It was fun to watch the D-line get after it," he said. "They're going to have a great year. What I noticed is how hard they hit and the D-ends are just so much faster than HS. I like how the coaches let the D-line run the show and they had some really athletic guys out there."

"Overall, I thought the team looked great," he said. "It was great to see some of those players that showed me around on my official making plays out on the field. I thought the defense had the game won right up until the end, but the offense won it at the last minute. Still, they played really well."

McCaskill also noted that he believes the new football facility will be comparable to Oregon's.

"I've seen Oregon's up-close," he said. "The facility we're going to have will be amazing. I think it'll be just as good as Oregon's."

"It will definitely help with recruiting."

And McCaskill (6'4, 245) says he'll arrive in Boise on June 24th as he'll enroll in the summer bridge program at Boise State.

"I'll arrive on June 24th for the summer bridge program," he said. "I can't wait...I'm really excited," he added.
