Austin Vaimili Hopes to Make Impact for Serra in 2012

Southern California Football Factory Gardena Serra Anticipates 2012 Season

After two seasons at Carson, Austin Vaimili transferred to Gardena Serra to fully develop his potential in hopes of landing with a Division I college football program in 2013. Unable to play varsity as a junior due to transfer rules, Vaimili excelled with the junior varsity last season, compiling 10 sacks , 48 tackles, 5 fumble recoveries, 4 forced fumbles, a touchdown and an interception.

Despite a lack of exposure and playing time at the varsity level, Vaimili appears destined for success. CLA was fortunate enough to catch up with Austin as he gets ready to make an impact for the Serra Cavaliers varsity this season.

“My team goal is to win CIF and have an opportunity to play in and compete for a State title. My personal goals for 2012 are to obtain a 4.0 GPA, to score high on my SAT and have a strong football season in hopes of receiving offers from Division I colleges.”

At 6’3 244, Vaimili has the size and speed off the edge to wreak havoc for opposing quarterbacks and make plays in the backfield. Austin is determined to take his game to the next level.

“I have been able to play various positions throughout my career, so it is difficult to compare myself to a specific player. However, I am physical, I like to use my hands, I continue to improve my speed and my motor, I can play the run and I can play the pass. The players I look up to are Justin Tuck and Dwight Freeney because they are both aggressive, have a fast motor, they are quick and they never quit.”

Austin Vaimili clearly has the skill set, determination and confidence to be a college level athlete. CLA looks forward to following Vaimili’s development and influence on the Cavaliers success this season
