The fifth in a series of Feature Friday video interviews

Jake Fely is a 5-foot-10, 210-pound sophomore linebacker from Oceanside, Calif. Although many consider him undersized, Fely has been one of the Aztecs’ best defenders as he consistently makes plays all over the field.

I sat down with Fely to learn more about him both on and off the football field. Here is the video interview:

Aztec fans –

Thanks for voting in the recent Feature Friday video interview poll. There were six players to choose from, and each of them got a considerable amount of votes. There were also a few write-in selections, so thanks for the input!

Two players received a majority of the vote, and it wasn’t until the last day that one of them pulled away to win the poll. Tight end Gavin Escobar and linebacker Jake Fely received the most votes.

After a week of voting, the winner of the Feature Friday poll is…

Jake Fely!

Stay tuned tomorrow for a brand new video interview with the Aztecs’ middle linebacker.
