Kaufusi talks about getting married.
“I’m marrying Hilary Smith. She’s a goalie on the BYU soccer team, and we’re getting married on July 6. We’re excited. She’s beautiful and wonderful. I’m a lucky guy.”
Why do you like basketball and football? How are they different?
“I love football. I love the camaraderie and physicality of it. I love the one-on-one situations and the challenges on each down.
“You have that one-on-one situation with basketball as well, but I just love how smooth basketball is. It’s different from football. I love the style of the game and the teammates. It’s a little bit different team setting. It’s a smaller team, and you know everyone’s names, whereas in football you have a bigger team and don’t know everyone. Sometimes you just see their number and helmet and that’s it.”
If there was one thing you could tell the fans that they don’t know about you, what would it be?
“I didn’t play in a football or basketball game for four years because I got hurt my senior year so I didn't get to play again until after my mission.”
