Below is SOR's one-on-one with one the Rutgers' future loyal sons.
SOR.com: We know you started the year with two tough losses. How would you say the season in general is going thus far?
Ruiz: We're getting better, this year is still a work in progress.
SOR.com: What is Sunset's current record and how is the team performing or jelling?
Ruiz: This friday we will more than likely be 2-2. Our team is getting to know each other better. We have alot of new guys contributing which makes it difficult to know how everyone plays with one another.
SOR.com: How have you played on the offensive and defensive side of the ball?
Ruiz: I have played fairly well and made plays when the team needs them most. But this is a team and I'm not going to ask for the ball in double coverage when our receivers are left open. I have been getting alot of attention from opposing defenses.
SOR.com: Have you followed Rutgers at all this season?
Ruiz: I was only able to see the Saturday game against Illinois, because the game against UNC was at the same time that we had a game. I see the team performing very well.
SOR.com: Have you been keeping in touch with Coach Demarest?
Ruiz: I spoke with Demo [Coach Demarest] and he told me he should be down sometime in September, so I should see him soon.
SOR.com: Any message to send to the RU fans?
Ruiz: I will be up there soon ... Until then ... go RU!
