Q: How are you going to train/prepare this offseason in preparation for the draft or other pro opportunities?

Q: If you could compare yourself to one current or former NFL player who would it be and why?
Ofa: I would have to compare myself to Danny Shelton of the Cleveland Browns. He was one of the best interior run stoppers in the NFL last season. Big, Fast, and Smart are the qualities that I find similar.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on or look for?
Ofa: When I study film, I look for the strengths and weakness of who I would go against. Also, recognizing plays helps a whole lot.
Q: What separates you from other players at your position?
Ofa: What separates me from other players at my position is that I am very unselfish. I can hold a double team against any O-Lineman well. I make others around me look very solid. I can also pass rush a little bit coming from teams that carried more pass rushers is what developed a little wiggle.
Q: What kind of abilities would you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
Ofa: I will help any defense out big time. I always do my best to help. Character is what I’m about on and off the field.
Q: What is your final pitch/sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?
Ofa: To the NFL and Pro scouts, I have to say that my physical toughness is my trademark, my physical play and my strength is what helps me dominate.
