"We have had practice all week," Meredith said. "It was our hell week. We even had two practices on Saturday."
While many look forward to the start of fall camp because the season is around the corner, Meredith wasn't. It's a bit crazy to want that type of punishment. If there was something to look forward to it was that Meredith has been getting ready.
"I wasn't looking forward to it, because it's hell week and who is going to look forward to that? But, I have been practicing."
"I have been at it hard now for two months. I get to go against Khaled Holmes every time. We make each other so much better."
Holmes pushes Meredith. Meredith pushes Holmes. If he had to guess on who wins the most? Meredith says it's pretty close to a draw. Regardless of who wins more, they are bettering the team by their competitiveness.
"It's a competition. He's not always winning and I am not always winning. I would say that he gets about half and I get about half."
"We always try and make eachother better. Sometimes he gets that chance to throw me on the ground and sometimes I get to throw him to the ground."
Mater Dei is known by just about everyone who follows high school football. Every year they are in contention for the league title and very often for the top national team.
"Our team is looking really strong, both the offense and the defense. This is the most amount of defensive install that we have ever had by this point of the season."
Meredith says that not a lot has changed with recruiting since returning from his last unofficial visit. Meredith says that the same team is standing out in front for him.
"Right now, Nebraska is my number one team. I just felt more comfortable there than what I did anywhere else that I visited."
Meredith recalled what his thoughts were about the Nebraska trip going into it and how it changed dramatically after. It was an awakening.
"When I went on my visit to Nebraska, I didn't think that I wouldn't like it that much. I don't know why, it's what people from California say, I guess."
"But, when I got out there I really liked it. What separated it from the other places was the people. They were all very nice people."
"It doesn't matter who you are or where you are from at Nebraska, they are all nice to you. That is what I liked the most about Nebraska."
