BOISE, Idaho -
Utah State football completed its final day of preparation for the 2012 Famous Idaho Potato Bowl on Friday with several activities, including its final practice of the season.
Utah State began the day by holding a walk-thru at the Caven-Williams Indoor Facility on the BSU campus. Following lunch, select Utah State players and staff visited St. Luke's Hospital in Boise, handing out gifts and Aggie memorabilia.
Players who visited the hospital included senior defensive back Terrence Alston, senior wide receiver Matt Austin, senior tight end Kellen Bartlett, senior safety McKade Brady, senior linebacker Bojay Filimoeatu, senior wide receiver Chuck Jacobs, senior defensive end Al Lapuaho and junior defensive back Nevin Lawson, along with USU head coach Gary Andersen.
Following the hospital visit, the team had some more free time, then a team dinner. After the meal, the Aggies went to a USU pep rally at the Grove Plaza, joining the USU marching band, spirit squad and several hundred Aggie fans. Senior running back Kerwynn Williams, senior defensive back Will Davis and sophomore quarterback Chuckie Keeton addressed the crowd, along with Coach Andersen. The team then went through a couple cheers to close out the rally.
