What’s your impression of the players so far?

They’re great athletes. They’re definitely the top 10-percent of high school footballs across the nation.


What is the team learning from the Marines?

We want them to take away the Marine Corps core values. Pretty much honor, courage and commitment because they can apply that in their college lives and later on in life as well. It’s a good foundation. If you have a good foundation you can build upon that. You have to start at the bottom with the foundation and once you have a solid foundation, the home you build upon that can be unlimited.


What are you learning from the players? 

I have a new outlook on high school players and college players, just the potential of an 18-year-old kid and what all they can actually achieve. 


The Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl presented by the United States Marine Corps is Sunday, January 5th, at the StubHub Center in Carson, Calif. Watch the game live on Fox Sports One at 6 p.m. PST/9 p.m. EST.
