Trojan commit Dallas Sartz, 6'5, 205 lbs, of Granite Bay is having a fantastic year from his safety spot. A tough, physical player, Sartz anchors his team's defense and he consistently makes the big plays. Also a strong basketball and track & field competitor, Sartz is a big hitter with a nose for the ball. In discussing his strengths, he said the same thing everyone else who has seen him play has stated, "probably my hitting and being able to read the ball pretty well."
Evidence of Sartz's great all-around play is reflected by his performance in Granite Bay's last game. He was all over the field as he had 15 tackles and 2 interceptions to help lead his team to a victory. Currently, Sartz's season is rolling along, "The season's going real good. We lost our second game of the season to Nevada Union. They're a Division 1 team and then, ever since, we've won all of our games. We're 4-1."
One of the best things about talking to Sartz is hearing just how strong his commitment to USC is. His commitment is definitely solid and he watches the Trojan games every weekend, "Oh man, they're really tough games. They're so close. I mean, the last three games, they've only lost by fourteen points. So, I mean, they're so close to winning and they're playing really good teams." So, USC's slow start isn't having any kind of impact on his commitment? Sartz answered that with an emphatic "No, definitely not."
On the topic of his official visit, Sartz stated that he isn't positive on the exact date yet, but he is working on it, "I actually talked to the coaches tonight. It's probably going to be sometime in December."
Granite Bay and Sartz are taking on Placer High School this weekend.
