Laumatia's motor never stops

Snow DE Benson Laumatia (6-1, 255) doesn't worry about stats or glory. He just wants to help his team win. That workmanlike attitude has schools looking at how he could help them and the talented defensive lineman told that's fine with him...

Laumatia prepped at Mountain View High School in Orem (Ut.) and because he was unable to qualify, he decided to go the JC route to continue his football playing career.

"It was between Green River (a Washington JC) and Snow and I had met the coaches here at Snow and knew a bunch of players here, so I decided to stay closer to home," Laumatia, who also has family in the Seattle-area, told

As a freshman for the Badgers last fall, Laumatia held his own on the strongside posting over 30 tackles with five sacks.

"I'm probably more of a run-stopper just because that's what I do best," Laumatia said. "Honestly, I like pass-rushing better, but I'm a more natural run-stopper because I use my leverage good and I don't get pushed off the line which allows me to hold strong against the run.

"I'm quick off the ball and I have a good base, so that helps me too."

On the recruiting front, Laumatia said his coaches are surprised more schools aren't calling him, but that he should start to see things pick up in the very near future.

"My coaches said they were a little surprised I hadn't been hearing from more schools, but they said that should change here pretty soon," Laumatia said. "I'm just going to be patient and see who likes me and then I'll start focusing on what I'm looking for."

Laumatia is on pace to graduate in December and he will have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
