In an Q-and-A interview with Ryan Collingwood/VarsityCDA, Jeff Choate, a former Post Falls High football coach who now coaches linebackers at Washington State, said:
I think Idaho prep football has really improved, and a lot of that has carried over from Boise State’s success. As for North Idaho, when I was growing up, it had a reputation of having tough, hard-working kids. But I think that’s shifted over the years. I mean, how do you preach toughness to a bunch of kids from Dalton Gardens? Just the name itself sounds (fancy). …Last year Coeur d’Alene was as good as any team in the western Untied States. And (former CdA quarterback Chad) Chalich is a solid player. We had a lot of conversations on what we should do with him at Boise State, but we ended up getting another commit and Chalich ended up at Idaho. When Idaho does what it should and play at the FCS level (Big Sky Conference) I think Chalich will be an all-American player and Walter Payton Award candidate. …It’s really not right what (Idaho) is doing to its players in letting them get beat so they can get a paycheck.
