Leland HS ATH Christopher Santini (San Jose, CA) verbally committed to Boise State back in August and performed quite well in the Cal State All-Star Game two weeks ago. The game featured the best the Golden State has to offer and Santini represented Boise State well at the LB position. So, what are his thoughts on the game?

"I thought I did pretty well," he said. "I played on all the special teams and played 'backer pretty much the whole game. I saw a little bit of time at D-end too. I probably had about nine tackles."

"It was funny," he stated. "I actually scored a touchdown. The snap was muffed on a FG attempt and the ball went flying back. I thought the kicker was going to run the ball, but he tossed it to me. Chaz (Anderson) hit me and I thought I was going down, but I kept going and scored."

"It was a pretty cool experience," said Santini. "I was down there for four days and then game day. We had double days and had some fun out there. We won 53-37 and it was one of those games where it was a little serious, but we were just all out there having fun."

The future Bronco spoke to (LBs Coach) Bob Gregory on the 22nd of December.

"I spoke to Coach Gregory on the 22nd," he said. "That was the day of the bowl game. They were down there in Vegas and he was just giving me a run through on what they were doing and just wanted to check-in with me."

"I got to see a little bit of the second half," said Santini. "We had just gotten out of practice and I wanted to see the score. Man, I had a gut feeling that they would roll them, but I didn't want to think that and have them lose. That game wasn't even close."

"It's ridiculous how good they are," he said. "That's definitely a positive," he added.

"I'm 100% committed."

Looking back, Santini says his HS career helped him learn how to deal with adversity.

"How to deal with adversity," he said. "That'll what I'll take from it. Other than that, I learned how to train hard and just how to keep at it."

There is no off-season for Christopher Santini. He says he goes to the gym frequently and will continue training through the spring.

"I've been going to the gym and trying to keep up with my weight," he said. "I'll start training after this next all-star game I have coming up. It's getting ready for Boise after that. I'll start doing the workouts as soon as I get that packet after Signing Day."
