EAST CENTRAL -- When National Signing Day came and went back in February, the moment wasn’t lost at East Central High School. Five senior football players signed on to compete at the next level, including center Andrew Tercek, who inked his commitment to Boise State University.

Tercek, a four-year letterman for the Hornets, considered several other schools, and had offers from Navy, Rice, North Texas, and the University of Nevada at Reno. After a visit to Idaho, though, Tercek’s decision was made easy.

“I decided on Boise State because of Coach [Chris] Peterson and his philosophy,” Tercek said. “He said he works to mold boys into men. I really bought into his morals and his philosophy. It’s in line with how I was raised, and seems to be the perfect fit for me.”

Tercek leaves for Idaho in June, and he knows everything will be completely different once he is there. He is looking forward to being a student athlete at Boise, though, and to growing as an individual -- in taking that leap into adulthood.

“I’m pretty excited,” he said. “[but] I’ll miss my family and friends, and the Mexican food down here. They don’t have that up there.”

Tercek knows the competition will be stronger than ever before, but he is excited about the challenge. He is looking forward to working hard and earning his playing time, and is open to learning new things, and new ways of doing them.

“My goal is just to carry on in football, and to play sooner than later,” he said. “That, and whatever other plans God may have for me.”

Tercek is a spiritual young man, and said he is ready to go where life takes him.

“It’s in God’s hands,” he said. “Wherever he wants me, that’s where he will put me.”

Tercek reflected back to his sophomore year, and to the time when he broke his ankle.

“I just sat back and had to wonder. I questioned what God’s plans were for me. But I worked hard and got better,” he said. “I prayed a lot about this decision, and about attending Boise State.”

Tercek believes that in order to achieve success at the college level, he needs to keep an open mind, and to believe in his coaches. He said the team’s winning record and national ranking each year are proof that the coaches know what they are doing, and he needs to keep a clear mind and trust in them.

“I am going to just go up there and make my family and friends proud,” he said, “make God proud.”

Another person who is certainly proud of Tercek’s accomplishment is his father, David.

“He knew he wanted to play Division 1 football,” David said. “He wanted the choice to choose. When the North Texas offer came, then we knew anything else would be gravy.”

David said he left the choice of schools to his son, knowing that at the end of the day, he was the one who would have to live with the decision. David admits he would have preferred it if his son had attended Rice, but is happy with his decision to play at Boise State, and feels comfortable sending his son to the school.

“Having the chance to play for a national championship was part of the deal,” David said. “He made his decision based on that, and with a lot of prayer.

“He is mature enough to make this decision and to go off and be on his own,” David said. “I’m happy he had a choice, and am happy with his choice.”
