BOULDER, Colo. — The CU Buffs have only lost one game at the Coors Events Center this season.

After a rough start to the Pac-12 season, the young Buffs are starting to find their groove.

Nobody is more excited than Pete Boyle.

The 10-year-old son of head coach Tad Boyle is part of the game day crew. He hasn’t missed a home game yet.

During every time out Pete doesn’t just sweep the floor, he gets his groove on. Check it out in the video clip to see for yourself.

Pete has been showing off his dance moves at every timeout during this dad’s three-year run as head coach in Boulder and creating his own buzz.

The coach says his son has been doing this since his coaching days at the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley.

“I get comments wherever I go… If I go speak at a club here or a club there…. Women have fallen in love with him,” says Tad Boyle.

The unique opportunity Pete Boyle has to watch the Buffs and get groovy isn’t lost on the 5th grader.

“It’s really an honor to have my dad as a coach… and to have these seats… to be out there dancing… it’s really an honor.
