The Broncos’ temporary practice facility at East Junior High was a hit. The team has two full-size practice fields and a third area where the linemen do drills.
The grass is a little long, but it’s a much cooler place to be than the blue turf.
“It’s good to get off the blue here and there and let the blue kind of rest, because it’s kind of an old field now,” senior quarterback Taylor Tharp said.
The current blue turf was installed five years ago.
The Broncos added 12 walk-ons to the roster Friday. They are: offensive lineman Joey Chavez (Diamond Bar, Calif.), offensive lineman Sam Douthit (Eagle High), Shoemaker, tight end Ryan Angstman (Meridian High/Santa Barbara CC), wide receiver Ricky Cookman (Clackamas, Ore.), running back Stephen Gabbard (Huntington Beach, Calif.), kicker Brock Jaramillo (Temecula, Calif./Orange Coast College), safety Shaun Jordan (Rocklin, Calif.), defensive end/long snapper Jeff Lowe (Aloha, Ore./College of Siskiyous/MidAmerica Nazarene) and linebackers Travis Stanaway (Clyde Hill, Wash.), Dave Wilson (Powell, Wyo.) and Matt Wilson (Powell, Wyo.). The Wilsons are twin brothers.
