Silver Ma'ake breaks a tackle
"Being quick off the ball is the main thing," Levale said. "I think our linemen did great today, both sides of the ball, especially on the defensive side. Causing that pressure allows the cornerbacks and free safety and secondary to just get interceptions, tackles, everything."
Chalmers said, "Today I think we saw how dominating he (Levale) can be. He got in and broke up pass plays, knocked down the ball, prevented sweeps, stacked up the middle, but he wasn't alone. Donovan Wilson, Phillip Moser, even Ivan Miramontes, the smallest kid on the he team was just dynamic in there today."Source: http://juneauempire.com/stories/082006/spo_20060820036.shtml
