A Few Standing Out for Maka
It was quite the weekend for Tustin (Calif.) offensive lineman David Maka. On Thursday night, Maka and his Tiller teammates defeated Anaheim (Calif.) Western 82-7, in what was almost a complete shutout. "It was a really good game tonight. I think our team played really well. We just have to work on getting better every day and continue to work as hard as we can," he said." he said. The 6-foot-5, 330-pound prospect, who plays at center for the Tillers, has been working hard to improve as an overall player. "I've improved by getting more into shape. It's something I've been working hard for, just to become a better lineman. I love to block, move people off the line, and create space for the runners. Every week, I keep working on my speed and my get-offs on the ball," he said. Saturday, Maka flew to Arizona with friend and teammate Davonte Young to witness the Wildcats' last minute comeback over USC, a trip he really enjoyed. Maka has picked up offers that Utah, Utah State, UCLA, and San Diego State, and is continuing to hear from a few other programs. "I've been hearing from Utah, Washington, Utah State, San Diego State, and UNLV. A lot of different schools. Utah and Washington are both probably standing out," he said. Maka is planning to visit both Washington and Utah, though nothing has been set quite yet. For now, he's focusing on taking the Tillers back to state and winning the championship for the second year in a row. "We're going to keep working hard. We can't just be satisfied with 9-0," he said.
