First-year Colorado coach Mike MacIntyre took in Friday's Pine Creek-Falcon game, trying to make the rounds to observe the bevy of talented players across Colorado.

While he couldn't speak specifically about players he might have been specifically watching, he did emphasize the significance of recruiting and signing area athletes.

"In-state talent is extremely important for us," MacIntyre said. "We're looking at all the in-state guys, trying to get the ones we think are Pac-12 football players. Recruiting is the lifeline of our program."

Ballage rushed for 166 yards and two touchdowns in the first half, but was slowed down in the second half as Pine Creek defeated Falcon 29-13.
