"It's an honor and privilege to be one of the few that are selected and recognized to play in an All-American game," said Tabuyo. "It's a dream come true for me. Growing up I always dreamed of playing in one of the biggest games with the best players across the country."
Tabuyo is happy with his season so far, both individually and as a football team.
"I think as a team we definitely matured more on and off the field this year as compared to last year," said Tabuyo. "I'm proud of how we are playing as a team, and playing with effort no matter what the score is. We still have a chance to go to the playoffs. We need to beat Punahou, which is our last regular season game. And need for another team to beat them as well."
"This season I think I'm playing great as an individual. Eleven months ago I had ACL surgery and my stats are better than last years," said Tabuyo. "So far in nine games I have 44 receptions for 722 yards and 11 touchdowns (10 receiving)."
Tabuyo committed to Texas A&M shortly after receiving the offer this summer and hasn't wavered since.
"I am still solid with my commitment to Texas A&M, and I will stay that way," said Tabuyo. "I love the coaching staff there and the direction that the program is going. I think it will be a great fit for me."
"I'm still planning to take my official visit during the weekend of November 24th when A&M plays Missouri," said Tabuyo. "The final game of the regular season."
Most programs have backed off Tabuyo since his commitment to the Aggies, but he is still hearing from a few.
"Since I committed to Texas A&M, most of the schools that have been contacting me and sending stuff have stopped," said Tabuyo. "It was pretty amazing the effect it had once word got out. Now just a handful of schools are contacting me or still sending out mail or emails. I'm still hearing from Kansas, Oregon State, UCLA, Washington State, Missouri and UNLV."
