With the sounds of the hustle and bustle of a just-completed football practice echoing in the background, Cody Hoffman   discussed what it’s like to be a first-year player at a big time college program.

The former Del Norte High standout at wide receiver is now a freshman with the Brigham Young University Cougars of the Mountain West Conference.

“It’s going good,” Hoffman, 18, said during a telephone interview Tuesday from Provo, Utah. “It’s a lot different than high school, but it’s a lot of fun.”

“It started to snow here today,” he added. “That’s a big difference.”

After an outstanding gridiron career with the Warriors, Hoff­man, who was born and raised in Del Norte, accepted a full ride to BYU, a top-tier football program that has already won an NCAA football title and has sent numerous players to the NFL.

“It’s a big program,” Hoff­man said. “They know how to win games.”
