Since Arizona State coach Todd Graham arrived in Tempe, Ariz., his mission has been to establish a pressure-oriented defense.
Therefore, the ASU coaching staff is always looking to recruit players who can wreak havoc in an opponent’s backfield.
It did take long for ASU’s newest verbally committed recruit, four-star defensive end Dougladson Subtyl to make an impact behind the line of scrimmage Saturday Oct. 24.
Subtyl plays for Victor Valley College in Victorville, Calif., and recorded two and half sacks in Victor Valley’s 79-0 win over Compton College according to the Southern California Football Association website.
He got behind the Compton offensive line three times in a very limited amount of time on the field. Subtyl said his coach wanted to give the freshmen extra playing time so he only played in the first quarter and a little bit in the second quarter.
“I just used my speed and my quickness and my hands and I just sacked the quarterback,” Subtyl said. “But I didn’t play that much.”
Even with Subtyl and the starters on the sidelines, the Victor Valley defense dominated the game holding Compton to only five first downs and 82 total offensive yards.
“We were balling out on defense,” Subtyl said. “I was coaching the freshmen.”
Subtyl made it difficult for Compton to gain first downs when he was in the game because his sacks resulted in 23 negative yards for Compton.
In seven games, Subtyl has 16 sacks, which leads the California Community College Athletic Association.
