How was it playing two games in a week? How did you prepare mentally and physically? "It was exciting to play two games in a week. August is always a long month, and to have two games was a nice way to kick off the season after so many practices. Physically, hydration, nutrition, and ice baths were important to help our bodies recover, and mentally, we had all of August to get familiar with the defenses we were going to see and watch plenty of tape." Talk about your experience in the ESPN and Santa Margarita game. "It was a good experience playing Santa Margarita. It was tough losing, but playing a national power was good for us and will make us a better team down the stretch and in the playoffs." Talk about your play in each game. "In our first game against Mountain Ridge, we came out well offensively, scoring 3 TDs in the first quarter, but then our offense stalled for a while. Against Santa Margarita, our defense played well and we didn't execute well enough to win offensively." Have you been in contact with any WSU coaches? If so, what did you guys talk about? "I spoke with the WSU coaches last week, after our game against Mountain Ridge. We talked about how the game went, the upcoming game against BYU, and the new facilities going in up in Pullman." With college football about to kickoff, let's talk about WSU's opener. "College football is the best time of the year. I love watching college games on Saturdays, even more than the NFL. I'm excited to watch the Air-Raid for the first time in a few years, and am looking forward to watching Coach Leach return to his alma mater. It should be an exciting game. I know BYU is a very good opponent, and I can't wait for the game Thursday night." How have your first few weeks of school been? "School has been going well. I have a good group of teachers this semester, and I am looking forward to learning from them."
