Nate Potter


The only football player in school history to earn consensus All-America honors while also being named a first-team Academic All-American, Nate Potter started at tackle for four years before being selected in the National Football League Draft by the Arizona Cardinals. Potter, who was Boise State’s first football Academic All-American in more than 30 years, was also a second-team honoree following his junior season in 2010. Potter was a three-time first-team all-league selection, picking up a pair of such honors in the WAC before being one of only two unanimous selections in the Mountain West in 2011. His All-America accolades came from The Sporting News, the Football Writers Association of America, CBSSports and Yahoo Sports in 2011.
