Former Bronco Football Player Fills the Stands and Receives Surprise from Boise State
You did it, Bronco fans! You are making it possible for those who cannot afford to pay for Boise State football tickets will be able to go to a home game. That was the goal. What was unexpected was what Boise State did.
Elliot Hoyt, a defensive tackle for the Broncos just last year, had a goal to fill the stands. In his story, he talks about how he went to a game as a spectator for the first time and was shocked to see the empty seats at Albertsons Stadium.
Instead of complaining about it, he did something about it and went to work researching why. The main reason the stands weren't filled was because people couldn't afford it. That's when the funds needed to come in.
This is how everything ended:
Not only did you all step forward in such a huge way but Boise State wanted to make sure Bronco fans fill the stadium.
Then, just to even things out a bit, Lyle Pearson Mercedes/Porsche took the ticket number to 300 per game.
Watch for the lucky recipients of these tickets at the game on 10/21 vs. Wyoming and on 11/4 vs. Nevada.
