Kamalei Correa" "I Can Do A Lot More For This Team" As Broncos Head To Virginia

Kamalei Correa isn't a fan of flying, at 6'3 250lbs, who can blame him. But what he does like, even more than collecting 2015 Award watch list honors, (Chuck Bednarik Award Preseason Watch List, Bronko Nagurski Trophy Preseason Watch List, Rotary Lombardi Award Preseason Watch List) is collecting wins.

Three games into the season Kamalei Correa isn't satisfied with his performance, but Friday night brings another chance to step up and prove what Boise State is about. 

"We want to win as a team, every game. We're going to go into this game with the same approach we do with every game."

Correa is currently 8th on the team in total tackles, with 12, but he leads the team in both sacks (2) and tackles for a loss (4). Despite that, he told the media that he was dissatisfied with his performance three games into the season.

"Really, I haven't played up to my expectations about how I should play. Coach Caldwell has a certain standard for me, I have a certain standard for myself, and Coach Harsin has a certain standard for me but, I feel like I can do a lot more for this team and I feel like I haven't been playing the way I need to be playing."

One reason for his slower start this season is the defense scheme. Correa is dropping back into pass coverage more at this stage than he did last year.

"I'm trying to work on my coverages and trying to work on my being a versatile player instead of just rushing the passer."

Correa, and the rest of the Broncos, take on Virginia on ESPN this Friday night.
