The Hammer symbolizes Boise State Football. It represents a blue collar attitude and a tradition of hard work and sacrifice that has been built by players past and present. Perseverance, toughness and a relentless effort, unify our competitive spirit, allowing us to keep swinging until we conquer our opponents.
Every week the Hammer is given to the Special Teams player who gets the best hit or tackle of the game. Leading his teammates onto the field, the player with the Hammer signifies the solidarity of our team. This unity allows us to play for a cause bigger than ourselves. Never relenting, the Hammer symbolizes the power of a collective force; the Foundation of Boise State Football.
