    Don't forget about this kid, we have a chance to get his signature.

    That's true, he's not too far from where Sefo played. As always I had to look up their schedule to see if they played each other in 2012. Looks like Lakes beat Bellarmine 42-38. That would've been a fun game to see. In fact it was Bellarmine's only loss of the regular season and they wouldn't lose again until the state championship final. I couldn't find a matchup vs. Sefo once in any of his film but there's plenty of him going Seek and Destroy against other opponents.

    What makes you say that? I assume we have no shot with a 4* kid and offer list like that.

    Considering the verbals we have already picked up this year and the kids we signed last year, this kid would be an important piece of what is shaping up to be a tough front seven. We've seen some struggles with recruiting on the offensive side but I see a gritty defense, in its early stages shaping up. Hope we can land this guy.

    Can't hurt that our starting QB is from Washington and of Polynesian heritage.

    ...and seems to bleed black and gold as much as any player that has worn the uniform. I will never seize to be impressed by how strong his commitment remained before and after the coaching change.

    And he has all the makings of a very good leader and had the respect of the offense very early last season and now the team.

    He such a strong commitment because his dad was in the AF in the Springs when Aunese was playing. His dad was a huge fan and so is Sefo. I think he's wanted to play for the Buffs his entire life....just loves the program!

    I think it's more of how Sefo was raised and that he'd be the same no matter what path he went down in life
