Boldewijn ready to break out for Broncos
BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) - Boise State wide receiver Geraldo Boldewijn has missed eight games the past two seasons, forced onto the bench for NCAA violations related to benefits provided by his host family. But, the Dutch wide receiver is trying to put that behind him.

Boldewijn he has high expectations heading into his senior senior. First, playing a full year. Second, riding the momentum of a career-best performance in the MAACO Bowl Las Vegas when he caught five balls, and a touchdown against Washington.

"It's not just like focusing on one thing. We're trying to just pick up on everything, so like catching the ball consistently, having strong hands with defenders on your back. We've been in the weight room extra, trying to put some more mass on. I mean being a senior now, I'm trying to step up a little more as a leader, be a little bit more vocal, and just consistent day in and day out," said Boldewijn.

"When you get to your senior year, I think it means something, I think it's a little different. I mean you're not only playing for yourself, but you're really playing for this team. I think he's gonna have a tremendous year, I really do," added head coach Chris Petersen.

Boise State appears loaded at the wide receiver position in 2013. Matt Miller, Kirby Moore, Dallas Burroughs, and Aaron Burks join Boldewijn at the position, and that's just the upperclassmen.
