Carson (Calif.) linebacker A.J. Ropati (6-1, 195), will be a key cog in the Colts' defense, as he was during his 2007 campaign.
As a junior, Ropati had 88 tackles with six sacks and four tackles for loss in helping the Colts to the CIF City Section finals.
Ropati was named a First Team All-Marine League selection.
While he plays linebacker for the Colts, with his size, he likely projects to safety in college.
Here are clips of Ropati in action from the 2007 season.
