Magloire ready to prove himself

Paul Magloire will sign with Arizona on Wednesday and is excited to do so. Read on for his thoughts on moving forward, contributing right away, and more.

Arizona Western C.C. defensive back Paul Magloire is one of a handful of early UA football signees and while this is a big week for him, he isn’t celebrating too much.

“I’m going to sign on Wednesday, but I don’t really have big plans for the day,” Magloire said. “I’m going to be with a lot of my friends and family and I know we’ll try to get a lot of pictures to capture the moment.

"It’s something I’m excited for, but I’m far from satisfied. I have a long way to go. I do realize what a special position I’m in though and I think things are shaping up for me to help out early.”

Magloire’s early arrival on campus figures to expedite the transition.

“I get in less than a month from now on January 5th and I’m ready to start grinding," he said. "I want to enjoy my time there, but on the field it will be all business.

"Going through spring ball should help me out big time. I’m also pumped to get going in the weight room they have there. I work out hard now, but just having all the stuff that the UA has will help me get better even faster.”

The three star defensive back has envisioned how his first year will play out.

“I’m going to go into spring ball in the best shape I’ve ever been in," he said. "I know it will take some time to learn everything, but the coaches will see that I’m all in to get better. They already know that, but I want to show them.

"There will be some open spots in that secondary and with my speed and physical style of play I feel that I have as good a chance as anyone to make a quick contribution. Bottomline, I want to win and I want to be part of something special.”
