Where are the places you like to go to with your family?
“We always go to Seven Peaks because we live close to there. A couple times a week we’ll go for an hour or two and cool off during the summer. Hiking the Y is always a popular place to go. Ruby River, I was excited to come back and go to Ruby River. That’s the place.”
Coach Atuaia listed you as the toughest offensive coach. What are your thought on that?
“He’s messing with you. I wouldn’t take that seriously.”
Who do you think the toughest coach is?
“Toughest? I don’t know, we’re all pretty dedicated to what we’re doing. I’d give it to the chief, coach Anae, he’s probably doing this the longest. O-line guys are always tough playing (the position) and coaching it.”
What are you looking forward to most?
“Really it’s just the daily challenge of pushing myself and my guys to be the best that we can. Wherever we're at, it’s getting better and better every day. Obviously when you show up on Saturdays it’s a pretty exciting opportunity to display it in front of the TV, the crowd and the fans, but it’s that daily effort to push yourselves the furthest you can.”
Do you think the fans will enjoy the new offense?
“As long as we move the ball, I think they’ll enjoy it. Now if it’s three fast plays and a punt, not very much. If we’re moving the chains and getting up and down the field, you know, it will be a lot of fun to watch because there is less time between plays.”
