Leland HS ATH Christopher Santini (San Jose, CA) received his first offer just a couple days ago as Boise State became the first school to put an offer on the table. It's early in the process, but Santini is interested in learning more about the Bronco football program.

"Well, I spoke to Coach Choate for a few minutes and he talked a little about the school and camp," he said. "He handed the phone to Coach Petersen after that and he told me how they are interested and would like to offer me," he added.

"I was real excited and relieved to get my first offer," Santini said. "I was speechless at first, but I thanked them and told them I want to learn more and go up to the camp."

"I like their staff and how they all get along," he said. "You can tell that they talk to each other and get to know their players more than some of the other schools I have spoken to."

Boise State likes Santini at Nickelback. The talented ATH feels that position would be a solid fit.

"They like me at Nickelback," he stated. "I think that's a position that fits me well since I can move, read coverage, and come up like a LB."

What is Santini looking for in a school?

"The most important thing is a team I can get along with and one I can get to know," he said. "I want to be able to become a family with that team."

The Leland Chargers finished the 2010 season with an 8-4 record. Most predictions heading into the season had them finishing at the bottom of the league, so Santini was pleased with the results.

"We were 8-4 and went to the semifinals. Most of the predictions had us at 3-7 or something like that," he said. "We definitely overachieved and I think we could have gone further in the playoffs with a little more luck. We were real close to being a championship team."

What does Santini (6'0, 179, 4.8) bring to the gridiron?

"I'm very dedicated, just a student of the game," he said. "I love to watch film and try to find ways to defend the other team."

As a junior, Santini had 102 tackles, 2 INTs, 9 pass deflections, and 2 blocked PATs.
