Biyana is Motivated

Buntu Biyana has heard enough from the critics and he's determined to prove them wrong. Read further to get the details.

"Some people say that I can't play big-time, Division I football, and I will prove them wrong," said Buntu Biyana. "I've been watching a lot of film on these two defensive tackles from Louisiana: Tyler Porter and Mickey Johnson. I'm looking to see what they do, so I can apply it to my game.

"I'm attending an upcoming Blue Chip Football Camp, where I will be competing against top-rated talent. I hope to do really well and draw attention to myself. We don't have a spring training here (Canterbury School, New Milford, Conn.), so I don't have a change to show colleges coaches what I can do in the spring."

Biyana, who is a native of South Africa, moved to the United States so he could focus on football. At 6-2 and 260-270 pounds, he has the size to succeed on the next level at defensive tackle.

"I'm getting letters from some smaller schools such as Towson State and Coastal Carolina," he said. "I've also heard from Idaho. Ed Foley, the Director of Football Operations for Temple, saw my film and he believes I have good potential.

"He said he's definitely going to keep an eye on me. He's also going to talk to the Temple recruiter who is assigned to my area. I've also gotten a couple of letters from Boston College and Ohio. Whenever I've tried to call the coaches at those schools, they've always been on the road. I'd like to speak with them to determine their level of interest in me."
