Tyson Matthews, an all-state athlete on both sides of the ball will take his talents to the College of Idaho.

Matthews and Boise State signee Keegan Duncan are very close and if they're not competing on conflicting dates, hope to watch one another in action.

While they're both undersized, Coach Kelly Kidd says they make up for it with heart and knowledge of the game.

Kidd explained, "both of them have outstanding knowledge. Tyson being the most knowledgable kid I've coached as far as the game and McKay makes up for it with heart." "His ability to make things happen beyond maybe his athletic ability. They're both super, super great football players," Kidd added.

"Quarterback was fun, but I'm excited to play linebacker there," exclaimed Breshears. "I like hitting, I like the contact, I like defense better than offense."

"Super excited to play Rocky, especially all the kids from Oakley that I never got to play," added Matthews.
