Boise State football completes fall camp with annual Table Rock hike. This year, Dr. Tromp and fans went too

The proverbial climbing of the mountain signifies the countdown to kickoff, this year against Florida State in Jacksonville.

BOISE, Idaho — It's a tradition unlike any other.

No, it's not the Masters.

The Boise State football team gathered Sunday morning to mark the end of fall camp, a pilgrimage that's been a Bronco tradition for the last six years.

But this year, the team invited fans and the university's new president, Dr. Marlene Tromp, to make the 3.6-mile trek to one of the most iconic Boise landmarks with them.

Boise State senior offensive lineman John Molchon says the tradition helps set the tone for the season.

"The view is gorgeous. It really allows us to all to come together and finish up fall camp."

Boise State Senior Associate Athletic Director Brad Larrando, agreed, adding, "it's just a chance to really reflect and look ahead."

Table Rock sits 2,000 feet above the city, offering breathtaking views of the City of Trees.

The Broncos open the 2019 season at Florida State in Jacksonville on August 31.
