Corral Conversations: Mikey Tamburo
The workouts that Tamburo (6'0, 185, 4.58) referred to have been the cornerstone of the Bronco conditioning program. Boise State is a program that gets better as the season goes along and that's all due to the excellent strength and conditioning program. "We had a lot of summer conditioning when I was in HS," Tamburo said. "The running has been the toughest. The gases and the stadium steps have been pushing me everyday," he added. >br?>br? The coaching staff once again played a huge part in Tamburo's decision to sign with Boise State. "Coach (Bryan) Harsin was devoted to the game and to being the best coach," he said. "He laid it all out for me on my visit and what he wanted a QB to be in terms of percentages and ratings. Coach Pete is just a lot different than other head coaches. He's real laid back and always has a smile on his face."
One of the biggest transitions from HS to college for a QB is learning the playbook. Tamburo has focused his time on learning the complicated Bronco offense. "The college playbook is a lot different," he said. "It's all about studying and spending more time in the film room. I thought it would be the same as HS before I got it. It's a whole new set and a lot more complicated. It's a big process."
North Gwinnett plays in arguably the toughest county in the State of Georgia. Three 5A programs are all within fifteen miles of each other and that makes for some intense competition. "We finished 10-3 and lost in the quarterfinals," he said. "We fell short of expectations because of injuries. We had 4-5 skill players get hurt. 5A football is real competitive in Georgia," Tamburo added. Mikey put together an excellent season statistically as he threw for 2,500 yards and 22 TDs. He also added 1,200 yards rushing and 13 TDs on the ground. He scored a total of 92 TDs over his three year career as a starter. Tamburo believes that could possibly be the county record.
The season opener against Oregon has been hyped all offseason. Tamburo's first career game as a Bronco will come in arguably the biggest game ever held at Bronco Stadium. "It's big anticipation. A real hyped up game. I hear about it at home and from the football team. The whole nation will be watching. It'll be fun."
BroncoCountry.com will continue to have updates on Mikey Tamburo as he prepares for his arrival in Boise later this summer.
