37 is a prime number. You know how I know? Google. And do you know today is a prime day to talk about Boise State football? Well it is. With 37 Days left until kickoff against Washington we have — RB Ethan Mikita

Weight: 202 lbs
High school: Eagle HS, Eagle, ID
How’d he get to The Blue™?
By persevering after a really bummer end to his senior season (he tore an ACL). If I tear an ACL (most likely just by simply standing up incorrectly) I would need to be put out to pasture. Mr. Mikita made the decision to get back into the grind an continue his career.
He was offered a preferred walk-on spot with Washington and Boise State. Obviously he did the right thing.
Because he’s going to chew up his opponents! That and I’m an idiot and thought the power tools were spelled the same as his last name.
Ok. C’mon. You guys give me grief all the time on the lookalikes. THIS is a deadringer.
Played in four games last year, preserving his redshirt. Mostly special teams. Did carry the ball once against UNR for three yards. So that’s pretty dope.
Honestly: probably more special teams and garbage time. The dudes in front of him on the RB squad are… good. And the hope is those dudes in front are going to do some pretty productive things. You know what? I hope to see a bunch of Mikita on the field when it’s garbage time but in a good way.
Is he on Twitter?
Completely made up fact
While I did goof up the spelling of his name earlier (dashing a lot of better jokes) his family does come from the same familial line that includes ‘Makita’. But Ethan’s branch is way cooler. And better.
