Boise State head coach Doc Haskell, who joined the team for the event, expressed tremendous excitement for the Broncos achievement at NACE, while also speaking highly of the quality of opponents the Broncos had to beat.
“The NACE championship is the pinnacle of collegiate competition,” said Haskell. “These schools have the same requirements and obligations that we do. We know that these players are like out players. And we were victorious.”
