Watch out for Fonoti

One player on the Aggie defense this year that could make some major noise is linebacker La’Auli Fonoti.

The coaching staff is high on Fonoti who possesses size and athleticism. Woody Widenhofer has coached some great linebackers in his career and believes Fonoti could be an impact player. His development will be key.

The Aggies will need to cook up an increased pass rush from last year and will ask their outside linebackers to attack the backfield. One of those players will be Fonoti. At 6-foot-5, 250 pounds, he could be a breakout player in 2007.

I've always been a big fan of Lauli Fonoti.
He's made the transitions from TE to LB and I too expect him to make a living in the backfield!

Those North Shore kids are paying dividends!
