How Boise Football is Honoring those Affected

In honor of the victims of the Boise Towne Square mall shooting, Boise wanted to represent all those affected and our community by wearing “City of Boise” stickers on the back of their helmets. The stickers had an outline of the State of Idaho border with the words “City of Boise” and a heart placed at the Boise area.

The Broncos are always playing for this great city, but they were playing for more than that last week. The official Boise State Football twitter account wrote in a tweet “We always play for our city, but this week it means more.” and “For the rest of the season, we will honor our community and those affected by this week’s tragedy.”

Boise held that promise and beat out the Rams 28-19 and dedicated the game to those affected by the recent shooting.
