Sportsmanship is not only the right way, it’s the only way as it relates to treatment of teammates, opposing players, coaches, fans and other representatives of competing institutions. As an extension to this rule, Boise State athletics wants to remind every staff member, coach and student-athlete that to make sure this happens, ‘It Starts With Me’.
