At the end of the camp, the college counselors voted him the best overall quarterback and when we polled all 11 high school quarterbacks and asked them who they felt had the best week, Tui beat out Texan Rhett Bomar by one vote.
"I had an unbelievable time," Tuiasosopo said. "This was a lot different than being a ball boy. I learned so much and had a great time hanging out with the other quarterbacks. Everyone got along really well. There were no egos and everyone really bonded here."
"Matt has it all," EA SPORTS Elite 11 head coach Bob Johnson said. "He's a winner, he has the gleam in his eyes that you love to see. He doesn't have the most pure arm but he has plenty of arm strength, no doubt about that. He has a great work ethic, he's an athlete, he's smart, good in the classroom and a natural leader. I just love the kid and can't say enough good things about him."
Tui will be back in SoCal next week for the Area Code baseball games running August 4-9. He's a talented pitcher and could go high in next years MLB Draft depending on what kind of year he has.
"I love both sports equally," Tuiasosopo said. "When it's football season, that's my favorite sport and when it's baseball season, I like baseball. I'm definitely planning to do both sports in college. Right now, I haven't even thought about the draft or how much money it would take to get me to give up on going to college. I'll cross that bridge when I get there."
"It could be next week or signing day," Tuiasosopo said. "Just whenever I feel ready. I don't have one school that stands out over the others right now so obviously it won't be for awhile but when I get that special feeling and know in my heart where to go, I'll go ahead and pull the trigger."
