Did anyone see Isaac Sopoaga on the last drive as our fullback?! The man did great! I think we should seriously consider him for short yardage situations? Here is a bit I read in the post-game article, “When he comes in the offensive huddle in practice, I leave,” Spencer said. “I just go to the sideline. I'm not messing with Isaac. He's a very athletic big man. Offensively and defensively, I think he really helps out when he goes in there."
When the coaching staff told Sopoaga he was headed into the game to play fullback, he was excited. Sopoaga played rugby for 12 years, and he said lining up at fullback brought him back to those days.
He loves the opportunity to hit guys with a running start.
“I enjoy it, and I hope there’s more coming,” he said.
