"We have a really great D-line. We have big guys and guys that can move," Fuga said. "We also have guys with experience. I think we'll be really good up front. I love the guys I'm playing with right now. They all push me to go harder and I push them to go harder. This is the most fun I've had playing."
And with the Cougar defense's relatively inexperienced secondary, Fuga knows the onus is on the defensive line to put pressure on opposing quarterbacks.
"Whenever the quarterback has too much time to throw the ball, I feel like it's my fault, or the D-line's fault," Fuga said. "We're supposed to help each other. If we can get to the quarterback in short time, we'll be happy and the secondary will be happy."
Then again, Fuga is just happy to return to the field this fall.
"I'll be ready. I can't wait," he said. "It's been too long."
