QB SEBASTIAN TRUJILLO
What is your current height, weight and workout numbers?
Sebastian: I didn’t run a 40. I measured in at 6’2 ½ and I don’t know what I weighed in at. Right now I am
220. We didn’t do any maxes for some reason.
Where did you go to high school?
Sebastian: Durango, Colorado.
Did you play any other sports in high school besides football?
What is your major and GPA?
Sebastian: I have a double major in business and real estate. 3.67.
When do you expect to graduate?
Sebastian: Spring 2010.
What is your learning style? (board only, board & walk thru or visual-have to see it.)
What is the biggest adversity you have had to overcome in your college career or life?
Sebastian: I talked to coach about that at the end of the spring I think it was coming into USD and learning
the west coast offense from nothing. I came in July and we had guy in the starting position already and it
was a lot for me to climb.
Talk about your family background such as parents, siblings, and employment.
Sebastian: My parents are separated. My mom is in Durango Colorado and she has a boy and girl both
younger than me. My dad lives in Phoenix and has a daughter. I have a good relationship with me. My
mom stays at home with the kids and my step dad is a real estate broker. My dad is a sale rep for a BBQ
Do you have any relatives who played in the NFL?
What do you feel are your strengths and weaknesses?
Sebastian: I would say accuracy and I have been told I throw well on the run because I can make plays
happen when the pocket breaks down. My weaknesses are that I am still learning the west coast offense.
This year I am trying to know everything about it because I sometimes make mistakes. I would say just
being familiarized with the playbook inside and out.
What is the highlight of your career?
Sebastian: I think last year when we played UC Davis. It was a big game for the program. When I came
before Josh Johnson had two good shots at him and came close to beating them but we won last year. I had
a lot of fun playing in that game.
Who is the best player you have faced in your career?
Sebastian: The nose guard John Faletoese from UC Davis.
Who is the best player on your team?
Sebastian: Last year it was John Matthews but this year probably my right tackle Conrad Smith. He played
center for us last year.
Is there anyone else on your team who has NFL potential?
Sebastian: Gabe Derricks was asked to come and meet with NFL scouts where they gave us a wonderlic
test. It was Conrad, me, and Derricks.
What are your goals for this year?
Sebastian: I want to go undefeated and win the league. I just want to do those two things. It would make a
highlight for my career.
What are your future goals?
Sebastian: I would love to play in the NFL but do commercial real estate after that. I met Ken O’Brien who
does real estate out here and he was a quarterback for the Jets for a while.
PROSPECT UPDATE- August 6th, 2009
Eastern Illinois announced three FBS transfers have joined the football team for 2009 when the team
reported for fall camp. Among those is former Iowa starting quarterback JAKE CHRISTENSEN (6010,
205). He passed for 2,269 yards and 17 touchdowns as Iowa finished 6-6 during his sophomore campaign.
He started two games as a junior and has not started since. He ended his playing career with Iowa in the
Outback Bowl and is a former Army All-American Bowl participant out of Lockport (Ill.) High School.
Appalachian State quarterback ARMANTI EDWARDS (5110, 181) had an accident with a lawn mower
during the first week of August and was immediately rushed to the hospital where he had several stitches
ranging from the top to bottom of his foot. Edwards will miss 2-4 weeks but will play in the opener against
Former Houston quarterback BLAKE JOSEPH (6014, 215) has been cleared to play at Sam Houston State
and will be eligible to play immediately for the Bearkats. Joseph spent four seasons with Houston and
started five games during that stint. Joseph could be among the best quarterbacks in the Southland this
From an incident earlier in July 2009 Northern Iowa C AUSTIN STEICHEN (6020, 305, 5.40) was
arrested on three charges and had the felony dropped on August 6th, making him eligible to play in 2009.
The other charges should be dropped at a later date. Steichen earned 1st team All-Missouri Valley honors
last year after starting just two games in 2007, playing left guard that season.

WEEK 16/17 PROSPECT REPORT
No senior prospects stood out the past two weeks.
NFL teams who believe in a strong running game are taking a big liking to Missouri
Western OG ROGER ALLEN (6031, 318) who has a 3rd-4th round grade from some
while most have him in the 5th round range. Don’t be surprised if he improves his 40
time and flashes excellent raw power at the NFL Scouting Combine and really moves up
the board from the late 7th round to PFA range teams had him coming into the season.
Division III All-American Wheaton College CB/RS PETE ITTERSAGEN () saw his
season come to an end against Mount Union in a 45-24 defeat but not before putting
together an impressive senior year that should be enough to get him in a training camp.
He returned one kickoff return and two punt returns for touchdowns this year on top of
his stout defensive play that saw him tally 65 tackles, three picks, and 12 breakups.
James Madison has two players receiving heavy interest as likely free agent pickups after
the draft in QB RODNEY LANDERS (6000, 217) and FS MARCUS HAYWOOD
(6001, 188). Landers lacks the top end speed to be drafted but could be a steal as an
undrafted free agent as a running back or safety. Haywood is considered the team’s
second best prospect at this point after a productive year. Don’t be surprised to see both
players make a practice squad or active roster.
NFL teams took notice of Northern Iowa DT EVERETTE PEDESCLEAUX (6043,
305) early in the season and has really flown onto the radar after recording 62 tackles,
11.5 TFL, and 6.5 sacks to earn 1st team All-MVC honors and 3rd team All-America by
the AP. A big bodied defender who can run and is explosive is something that many
NFL teams covet and thus could land him in the late rounds with good postseason
One defensive back who stands out on film but seems to be underrated is UMASS CB
COURTNEY ROBINSON (5112, 193) who is actually attracting the most NFL
attention of the Minutemen seniors thus far. His size/speed combo (5’11, 193, 4.50) and
ability to stop the run have intrigued scouts and thus could see him go in the 7th round if
he runs well in the postseason. He earned 1st team All-CAA honors with 35 tackles and
11 breakups while returning 18 kickoffs for 404 yards, averaging 22.4 per return.

OFFENSIVE PLAYERS OF THE YEAR
QB Cameron Higgins, Weber State, Soph.
Higgins has burst onto the national scene this year after earning Big Sky Freshman of the Year honors last
season to become a potential front runner for the Walter Payton Award. So far he has thrown for 2,121
yards, 23 touchdowns, and thrown just five interceptions on 153 of 226 passing. His 67.7 completion
percentage and 175.69 pass efficiency shows how good of a decision maker he is. Higgins also has one
rushing touchdown on the year and has earned Big Sky Offensive Player of the Week honors three times.
DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR
DE Greg Peach, Eastern Washington, Sr.
Peach has put together a great start to the season reminiscent to the one that Montana DE Kroy Biermann
did last season and put a stamp on this mid-season honor against Biermann’s alma mater with four and a
half tackles for loss and four sacks. That game brought his season totals up to 40 tackles, 13 tackles for loss,
11 sacks, a hurry, and pass breakup. As of the mid-season mark not only has Peach been the top playmaker
but his numbers help skyrocket his stock for the Buck Buchanan Award from contender to frontrunner.
SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYER OF THE YEAR
PR Scotty McGee, James Madison, Jr.
There has been no player in FCS to make more game changing performance plays this year than McGee and
he has made those plays against top competition. He earned his third special teams player of the week
honor this past week against Richmond and had previously earned those honors against former #1 App State
and Duke, a FBS foe. At the mid-way point he currently has 232 yards and two touchdowns on punt returns
and 427 yards and one touchdown on kickoff returns. His most recent touchdown provided the game-
winning score on the road against Richmond. McGee has broken JMU’s career kick return touchdown and
his 69-yard punt return for a score marked JMU’s 10th-longest punt return in school history and the longest
of the CAA this season.
With The Sports Network updating their official watch lists this week, we take a stab at who we think
should be on the list and list some players having impressive seasons that are worth mentioning.
