Fenumiai's goals are beyond school records
Except it is not the goal one would expect.
“Records,” Fenumiai said dismissively. “Records are not something I am about. If I am playing in the last game of the year with my teammates, now that would be special.”
The JDHS Crimson Bears’ football team has lost a lot of size on the offensive line in the last three years, which would be unnerving for a quarterback.
“In some ways it is good and in some ways it is bad,” Fenumiai said. “It is bad in that you don’t have that size you want in o-linemen, but this year it is good because our o-linemen are a lot more mobile.”
Mobile is good for a quarterback like Fenumiai who stands six-foot-three and weights just over 200-pounds and is one of the fastest players in the Rail Belt Conference.
“Our o-linemen can do a lot more things,” Fenumiai said. “They can run with me, they can run with the backs and they are more athletic so we have more downfield blocking. We are really conditioned, and some of them play both ways.”
Fenumiai is on pace to break a number of Crimson Bears records this season.
With 4,620 yards in the air and 52 touchdowns, Fenumiai is second on the JDHS career list behind Chris Hinkley (5,132 yards and 71 touchdowns).
