Tuiasosopo sets official visit

The Mariner Marauders are 9-0 so far this year, and Trenton Tuiasosopo is going to do his best to make sure his senior year continues to roll on unabated. The 6-2, 225-pound linebacker was part of a 35-0 Marauder effort last week against Kamiak, one that surprised even Trenton.

"For all the seniors, that was a big game," Tuiasosopo told Monday evening. "Each play was big for us. We hadn't beaten Kamiak for a while on the varsity level."

Trenton doesn't know his season stats, but does feel like he's taken care of business so far this year. "We're going great on the defensive side of the ball," he said. "I feel like I've achieved some of the goals I set for myself, but the season isn't done yet."

Tuiasosopo and the Marauder defense will have one of their stiffest tests to date - the Jackson Timberwolves. Johnie Kirton will do his best to run over, around and through Mariner, and Tuiasosopo knows he'll have his hands full with the 6-3, 250-pound ballcarrier.

"From what I've seen, he's a good running back," Trenton said. "He's pretty solid. We'll see how things go come Thursday."

One thing Mariner won't do is take the Timberwolves lightly. It's a mantra they've taken to heart. "The day we do is the day we lose," Tuiasosopo said.

Trenton verbally committed to Washington early so that he could concentrate on his senior season. It's a decision he's been rock solid on ever since he told Husky head coach Keith Gilbertson he wanted to be a Dawg back at the end of July.

"I'm set on what I want to do," he said.

Tuiasosopo went to last Saturday's Oregon-Washington game. "It was a great game." he said. "I was waiting for the defense to step it up and they did." He also said that he'll be attending the Apple Cup on the 22nd.

Trenton has set up an official visit for the weekend of December 6th. "I won't take any other visits," he said. "That's it."
