Travis Waller – In his own words
Travis Waller – QB (Servite High, CA)
Football season is almost on its way. I can almost hear the crazy fans up in the stands and our student section (The Asylum) doing what they do. I can smell the fresh brewed kettle corn and the Samoan barbecue in the parking lot. Although football season is nearing, our team has one goal that they are focusing on right now. We will go 16-0. One thing we realized is before you can go 16-0, you must go 1-0 and that first game is against the powerhouse Bishop Gorman in Nevada.
Ever since the beginning of May, our team has been working beyond the max in the weight room. We have had speed training almost every day and we just do not want to stop working. We are all striving to be the stronger and faster team every time we play our opponent. Practices are very hard and treacherous. Practices are not the most fun but we all know that it will work out in the end when we play our opponents. My teammates are very competitive every single practice. Every time our offense makes a big play we all jump around and have huge grins on our face knowing we won that play. Every time our defense makes a play the whole defense would smack each other in the chest. I love watching my teammates get so excited and hyped up when something big happens. Coaches from the Pac-12, Big 10, Mountain West, SEC, and ACC all stormed in to Servite to watch our practices. Maurice Davison, Equanimeous St. Brown, Clayton Johnston, Kameron Dennis, others, and I have picked up major Division 1 offers. Our mindset on the field is that we have 0 offers and we are striving to get that first offer so we can stay hungry and demand greatness within ourselves. Certain players on our team are ranked and have 3 or 4 star. We do not pay attention to stars and rankings. Last year we had 0 players who were ranked and had stars, and we had a very successful season in my mind. This year will be different because we will go 16-0.
