Choices. Torrey Pines High School senior Jacob Alsadek had the luxury of more than a dozen. He visited Cal, Vanderbilt, Boise State, Colorado, Stanford, UCLA and others. He agonized for weeks over which school, coach and football program was the best fit.

And, then, after choosing to orally commit and accept a full-ride, Division I scholarship offer to play Pac 12 football at the University of Arizona, the biggest (6’ 7”, 332 lbs.) offensive line prospect in America (according to ESPN.com) could be forgiven if he put his size 16 custom-made football cleats up on the couch and relaxed for awhile.

Instead, under the watchful eye of a personal trainer, RSF’s Alsadek finds himself each day sweating and pounding the stairs at San Elijo State Beach with some Falcon teammates. Alsadek, 17, is not resting on his laurels, and is not cutting back on this football regimen.

“I’m actually working out even harder now since I accepted the offer,” said Alsadek. It’s [head] coach [Rich] Rodriguez’s first year at Arizona, and he’s building a program. They told me that I have a chance to compete for a starting spot.”
