Unexpected Talents...Traveling with ISU Football

Idaho State football finished practice on Thursday, grabbed a hearty meal and headed out to begin its journey to Greeley, Colo. where the Bengals will play Northern Colorado on Saturday, Sept. 18 in ISU's first Big Sky contest of the season. The Bengals stopped in Rawlins, Wyoming for the night after a five or so hour long bus ride.

In the morning the team ate breakfast together. Defensive lineman Rustin Phillips finished his meal early and found a piano in the dining hall where he proceeded to play a collection of Top 40's hits for the team while they finished eating. Idaho State sports information was able to grab a quick video of Rustin playing Usher's "Love in This Club". A talented musician, Rustin can play the piano, the drums, the ukelele and the harmonica. He is also learning to play the guitar. Rustin taught himself how to play the songs he knows from listening to the radio.

After breakfast the football team took a four hour drive to Greeley, Colo. Once here they ate sub sandwiches for lunch then hit the books hard studying for their classes.
