Rory Connop enjoying his red shirt year with Boise State

Defensive Lineman Rory Connop received a late scholarship offer from Boise State and is making the most of it. Rory had been offered scholarships to Kansas, Tulsa, and Pitt but chose to continue his football and academic career at Boise State. Rory is a graduate of St. Francis high school and played community football with the West Edmonton Raiders but never played for his high school. He was a 2 time Prairie Football Conference all star with the Edmonton Wildcats, playing a total of 3 season with the club.

Rory told CFC this about his decision to attend Boise State:

“I chose Boise State because I felt like it was a great fit for myself academically and athletically, as well my ‘Dline’ coach (Coach Kwiatkowski) is one of the best, if not the best ‘Dline’ coach in college football. My family has helped me a ton in my football career. My Father Rod, has really helped me learn the game (as he played for the Eskimos for 16 years) and has taught me a lot. As well I have to thank my Junior Coach at the Edmonton Wildcats Darcy Park. He took me in coming out of high school with no high school football experience and gave me a place to develop and play.”
