Vinnie Sunseri talks first-time trip

Vinnie Sunseri, three-star middle linebacker from Tuscaloosa-Northridge, Ala., has posted back-to-back double digit tackles in his first two games of the season. Sunseri talked about his team's rough start and his first-ever trip to a game at Bryant-Denny Stadium.

"We got man-handled the last two weeks," said Vinnie Sunseri. "We have had a lot of turnovers. Our opponents average starting field position is on our 35-yard line. Our offense gave up 20 points in the first quarter last week. It's just been horrible so far.

"I have been doing pretty good. I had somewhere between 12-15 tackles the other night. In our first game I had between 16-18. This week we play Minor. They are super athletic. I know Chris Jones is very good. We will try to stop him."

Sunseri moved to Tuscaloosa during the spring where his father, Sal Sunseri, coaches linebackers for the University of Alabama. Vinnie had never attended a football at the Capstone.

"It was awesome," he said. "It was my first time ever being in the stadium for a game. I had no idea it was going to be like that. It was great to be out there. Our team is unbelievable. It's amazing to see all the talent out there on the field.

"Next week is big. It's going to be a great game, and I am looking forward to it. I have started to think about when I will take my official visit and that will probably be the Auburn week. Ryan Kelly is coming down for his visit then, so I will probably take mine as well."
