Nik Filardo had quite the debut for the Los Medanos College football team recording an interception and two sacks. Experience correspondent Connor Horsfield caught up with the Heritage High School alumnus.

 

Connor:
Hey Nik, I was asked by the LMC Experience (newsletter) if I could get a quick interview with you. By the way, I like the cleats.

Nik:
(Laughs a bit) Thanks, and alright.

 Connor:
Also, I just heard when I got here, but how does your knee feel? I heard that you went to have a shot in it?

Nik:
Eh, it feels alright.

 Connor:
Alright, now for what I actually had planned for today, after asking about your health and admiring your cleats (laughs a little). You had a great game this past weekend with 7 total tackles, 2 of which were sacks, and one of those was a safety. You also got an interception, and rushed Gavilan’s Quarterback enough to force another interception. How do you plan to keep up this pace?

Nik:
How do I plan to keep up this pace? Well, I gotta work hard every day at practice, and fine tune my game as much as possible.

 Connor:
This week LMC plays in San Jose, what have the coaches said to you guys to get you ready for this game?

Nik:
All of the coaches have done an excellent job in preparing us for this game, now it’s up to us executing on Saturday.

 Connor:
Have you played any other positions or have you always been a linebacker?

Nik:
I played a little bit of Tight End and Guard when I was younger, but it’s mostly been Linebacker.

 Connor:
The guys at the LMC Experience said to make this more of a Q&A this week, so let’s have a little fun. Who is/was your NFL hero? Any linebackers that you look up to or try to emulate on the field?

Nik:
Oh, that’s a hard question, but I’d have to say Bill Romanowski.
