Phil Loadholt, OT, 6'9, 348, GARDEN CITY JC, KS:
JH: How is your season going?
PL: "My season is going pretty good right now. We are currently ranked 8th in the country. We lost to our arch rival Coffeyville this past weekend. We lost 24-20. My individual season is going very well. I am dominating up to this point."
JH: Tell us a little more about your individual season?
PL: "I have not given up a sack all season — knock on wood. I am dominating and I try to dominate every defensive man I get to. I am not going to give up a sack this year and I am whipping everybody that is trying to get to my quarterback. I am grading out at 87 to 91 (percent) and my highest grade has been 91. I am just trying to get better every week."
JH: Have been watching Oklahoma play much?
PL: "Yes sir. I have been trying to catch as many games as I can. I caught last week's game and I enjoyed that win. Sometimes we play at the same time and I have to catch the highlights on Sports Center. I talk to OU all the time and I try to watch them when I can."
JH: Oklahoma just lost a starting offensive tackle to injury, so I bet you wish you were at OU already?
PL: "I definitely wish I was there right now. I am not trying to take anything away from my current season, but I can't wait until I get to OU and start having an impact on their team."
JH: Are you a left or right tackle?
PL: "I hope to play left tackle. Right now I weigh 348 and I am going to try to get down to 340 or less by the time I get to OU. I look forward to getting to OU in January to get into their strength and conditioning program."
Loadholt: "I am dominating"
