The Mountain West conference has officially out-lived the PAC-12. College Football’s money grubbing is reaching terminal velocity, and we’re somehow still ok? (PRAISE BE TO DICKEY!) With 28 Days left until kickoff, we have —Safety Seth Knothe

#28, Seth Knothe, Redshirt Freshman, Safety


Height: 6′ 1″

Weight: 210 lbs

High school: Bishop Kelly HS, Boise, ID

How’d he get to The Blue™?

Mr. Knothe walked on to Boise State in 2022 after carrying Bishop Kelly through the first round of the 4A playoffs. A decorated running back in highschool, he decided to follow in the footsteps of Bronco legends and switch to defense for now.

Career Highlights

Seth didn’t accumulate any stats as a redshirt in 2022, but his senior stats as Bishop Kelly’ running back are fun:

2023 Prospectus

This one is weird. Seth walked on as a linebacker, but seems to have switched to Safety this offseason. However, there’s a massive logjam at Safety, and as a redshirt freshman, we have to assume he’s not near the top of the depth chart. It’s far more likely that Knothe is gonna be putting in reps on the scout team as a Safety, and maybe even as a running back.

There’s been multiple examples of PWO guys working their tail off and getting pulled up for reps. (Tyler Crowe, anyone?) Our crystal ball predicts Seth does the work this season and starts getting rumblings for next year, whether offense or defense.

Is he on Twitter?

Yep, however it seems he made and used his Twitter purely for recruiting purposes. A smooth move, but not very active.

Completely made up fact

Seth has been Tyler Crowe’s understudy for Hair & Hot Moms for the last season. Always two there are, a master and an apprentice…
