Patrick Willis-He is a nasty and explosive player. Willis is the captain of his defense and a great role model.

If I do not make it in football, then I will go with my brain and go into engineering.

LAFM: What positions are you being recruited for? What is your favorite positions and why?
I am being recruited as a MLB. I like MLB because it is a position where you can do everything. I cover, tackle, rush the passer, get sacks, and direct the defense. I like being the QB of the defense and taking control.
LAFM: What assets and skills do you bring LA Tech?
You know I do not like to brag about myself. I think I would like to bring some swagger to the team. I can bring a nastiness and confidence to the Defense.
