Capital HS ATH Kyle Sosnowski (Boise, ID) was one of ten signees in the 2010 recruiting class for Boise State. Sosnowski brings versatility to the Broncos as he can play numerous positions on both sides of the ball. Boise State graduated very few seniors in 2009 so it's likely that one or two of the incoming freshmen will grayshirt. Will Sosnowski grayshirt?

"It's up in the air right now," he said. "We haven't talked about it in a while, but I'm fine with it. It would give me some time to put on some weight and get faster," he added.

Offensive Coordinator Bryan Harsin called Kyle just after Signing Day to congratulate him on becoming a Bronco. "Coach Harsin called to congratulate me on becoming a Bronco and doing well on my radio interview," Sosnowski said. "It was great talking to him. He's an all-around good guy."

The Bronco coaches have recruited more and more players that can play on both sides of the ball and Sosnowski continues that trend. He holds the Capital HS record for INTs and he made the transition to TE with ease. "I'm going to play TE," he stated. "That's the position they want me at first. It's a pretty big honor to play TE at Boise State. It'll be a good experience and definitely a fun one."

Sosnowski (6'3, 215, 4.6) became the 'go to guy' in the Capital offense in 2009. He simply told his QB to throw it up near the goal line and he'd come down with it. "I told my QB to throw it up and that I'd go get it," he said. "I had 19 receptions for 357 yards and 9 TDs. It came natural to me since I played WR a bit in junior high."

The 2009 season came to a bitter end for Capital as they lost in the 5A State Championship to Eagle. Sosnowski and his teammates finished with a record of 11-1 and he's hoping he can bring that level of success to The Blue. "It was a horrible ending to an awesome story," he said in reference to the 2009 season. "There was a lot of team unity and leadership from certain guys that I wasn't expecting. We just hit a bump in the road there at the end. I wouldn't trade it for anything and I credit my coaches for helping me get to this point," he added.

Kyle has already felt the power of Bronco Nation. "It's awesome," he said. "You can tell that Bronco Nation has a lot of support. I even had a substitute teacher congratulate me on becoming a Bronco."
