Broncos return to old ways, recognize four seniors on outside of Albertsons Stadium

BOISE -- The Boise State football program revealed their 2017 "banner boys" on Monday.
 
Wide receiver Cedrick Wilson, center Mason Hampton, linebacker Gabe Perez and tight end Jake Roh will each be recognized on outside of Albertsons Stadium this season.
 
One year after emphasizing program achievements on the banners, like conference championships and consecutive bowl appearances, the Broncos will once against honor individual players, acknowledging four seniors.
Next to each player will be a word that relates to the mantra of the program. Wilson will be the face of "Discipline," Hampton exemplifies the "Blue Collar" attitude, Perez will define "Passion" and Roh will stand next to "Toughness."
 
The tradition of hanging banners started back in 2009. The words 'discipline,' 'toughness' and 'passion' have been used multiple times prior to this year, but "Blue Collar" makes it's debut this fall.
 
The new banners will be hung on the Broadway Avenue side of Albertsons Stadium over the next week.
