Capital HS ATH Matt Miller (Helena, MT) took part in the summer conditioning program on the Boise State campus from July 10-25th. He's currently back home in Helena for a short break and will return to Boise on Tuesday as the team prepares for the start of fall practice. It's safe to say that the conditioning aspect was far more intense than it was during his days in HS. "It's on a whole new level," he said. "For me, the biggest difference was the conditioning. We're working toward something real big right now and it's just on a whole new level," he added.

Miller stayed with some family friends while in Boise. He quickly got to know his new teammates and instantly felt the family atmosphere that so many talk about when speaking of the Boise State program. "The older guys made it easier to acclimated. They all came up and introduced themselves," he said. "Me, Grant (Hedrick), and Kirby (Moore) went to the rodeo one night. That made me feel at home."

The standout ATH played some 7-on-7 and 11-on-11 with his new teammates. He believes the 2010 Bronco offense could be pretty special. "I think the sky is the limit for us," he stated. "I'm interested to see how much we can accomplish this year. Our offense has the potential to be scary."

Football season kicks into high gear next week as the Broncos open fall practice. It'll be yet another new experience for Miller and the other incoming freshmen. "I heard from the older guys it's a lot of hard work and long days," he said. "I'm expecting to be fairly tired for about a month. It's a grind and my goal is to get a good grasp of the offense during fall camp."

It appears the Boise State coaching staff is going to evaluate all the new freshmen following fall practice and then determine which ones will play (if any) and which ones will redshirt. It appears Matt could find himself in the WR rotation this fall depending on how quickly he learns the playbook. "I know about 50% of the offense right now," he said. "I've got to get the terminology of the offense down. It's still pretty confusing, but it'll get better with fall camp coming up since you'll surround yourself with it," he added.

Miller (6'3, 210, 4.55) watched the Broncos practice a few times while he was being recruited last year. He told BroncoCountry that he had never seen a team practice as hard as Boise State. He now knows that for a fact. "I'm now 100% sure that no one works harder than Boise State," he said.

In 2009, Miller garnered First Team All-State honors and was named the Gatorade Player of the Year for the State of Montana.
