Q: What is the best part about being back on the gridiron with everything going on right now?

A: The best part about being able to play football with everything going on is that we are able to have some good in the middle of so much bad. This pandemic has caused many problems and to be able to play some ball and just ball out brings some relief and helps us block out all the bad going on.

Q: What are your personal and team goals for the season?

A: My personal goal is to do the best I can and do something that’s going to be remembered in the far future by me and my coaches. A team goal I would like to accomplish is to make it to the playoffs and have a winning season and make this senior year something worth it despite all the difficulties.

Q: How do you prep for the Friday night lights, what are your pregame rituals?

A: My pregame ritual is silence and hype music. Something to get me into the mood to go and play my best, but I also want to concentrate on my goal to go out there and play my best so I stay silent and just listen to music.

#32 Isaac Velasquez, LB 6’0″, 185Ibs.

Isaac Velasquez will be looking to shut down all opposing offenses with his stellar play read what he has to say about the upcoming season.

Q: What is the best part about being back on the gridiron with everything going on right now?

A: Football is a sport that I enjoy to the limit. Being granted the opportunity to play one last year is something I am truly grateful for. I still have fear of the current pandemic, but it also shows that following precautions, and guidelines, can prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Q: What are your personal and team goals for the season?

A: I plan to be a great asset to my team. Last year, I was not my best and I ended up regretting it. However, this season will be different. This season will be me showing everything I have. To show that I can be strong and powerful, and I deserve to be called a scorpion

Q: How do you prep for the Friday night lights, what are your pregame rituals?

A: I tell my self, โ€œFocus, focus focus. This day, you canโ€™t be the compassionate person you always are. This day, you have to be someone different. Let those feelings of anger come out. Release your deepest emotions. Make people recognize you by what you do this day. Make them fear you, make them be aware of you. Make something that will deserve the name of being an athlete, a strong person, a football player, a scorpion. Remember, they donโ€™t care about you. Why should you? Show what you are made of, show them what you can do.โ€
