Shane Swanson leads Broncos onto field

By Paul Gerke. CREATED Sep 29, 2013

Boise State fan and Minnesota-native Shane Swanson lived a dream Saturday. Swanson led the Bronco football team onto the blue before BSU's game against Southern Mississippi, raising a hammer into the air to the crowds' chants of "Shane! Shane! Shane!" drowned out the Boise State band.

"It was so awesome how the crowd reacted to him," said Broncos' head coach Chris Petersen. "That was probably the biggest cheer of the night, and rightly so."

Swanson also had the opportunity to call the coin toss. He is the second Bronco fan to have a wish granted by the Make-A-Wish program.

"It's awesome. Our players love it. Our players did a great job with Shane the last two days," said Petersen. "We're just honored."
