Not everyone is born with the measureables to play college football. If you're not lucky enough to be one of those blessed with natural 4.4 speed on a 6-2, 210 pound frame, hard work is your only avenue. Salt Lake City (UT) Cottonwood safety S.J. Fehoko fits that mold.
At 5-9, 195 pound, Fehoko may not have Pac 12 size, but his work in the weight room and dedication to the game is something college coaches will notice.
"I take pride in the hard work I do, Some colleges may see me as a undersized corner, safety, or outside linebacker, but I don't let my size hold me back."
Fehoko is a lifelong Utah fan, and mutual interest is shared on both sides.
"I have been talking to the coaches. I'll be heading to their elite camp in June and also attending the All Poly camp."
Other schools are showing Fehoko the love with letters and phone calls.
"I've also been talking to Hawaii, Nebraska, UCLA, Washington, Wisconsin, Ole Miss, Air Force, Utah State, UNLV, San Diego State, Cal, Missouri, Harvard, Boise State, Indiana, UTEP, Princeton, Yale, and Army."
With the hopes of picking up multiple offers and having options before making a decision, Fehoko is letting his play and work ethic do the talking instead of his size.
"I've been known to layout 300 pound linemen, soo I take it very personal when people underestimate me. The way i was brought up I never let size hold me back from accomplishing or anything I wanted to do."
Fehoko Brings Intangibles and Hard Work
