By Patty Hutchens
ick Nelson Senior Nick Nelson was an avid football player during middle school and his freshman year of high school. But when surgery sidelined him his sophomore year, he thought his football days were over.
Towards the end of Nick’s junior year, it was announced that Coach Puailoa would be taking over the football program. “I had Coach Puailoa for P.E. and he encouraged me to come back and play,” said Nick. He is thankful for that encouragement and said Coach Puailoa and his staff have brought the team together more than he ever imagined. “I like being part of a team,” said Nick. “It is like a big band of brothers.” He says the coaching staff helps to keep the players focused and on track. “Coach Puailoa is definitely a motivator,” said Nick, who adds that Coach emphasizes a good work ethic both on and off the field. In addition to football, Nick has played basketball since the third grade and made varsity as a junior and plans to play again this year. In middle school he also wrestled and was on the track team. In his free time, Nick said he enjoys hanging out with his friends and playing pickup games of basketball. One of six children, Nick said his love of football came from his dad who once played linebacker for a semi-pro team. When he graduates next spring, Nick plans to attend Boise State University and study engineering, but until then he wants to enjoy the present. “I like how close everyone on the team is and I’ve enjoyed getting to know people who are all interested in the same things,” said Nick. He said the advice he has for younger players on the team is to believe in the coaching staff and to persevere. “Keep doing what the coaches say to do. It will pay off,” said Nick who adds “Work as hard as possible. Strive to always do your best.”
ndrew Dubnicka Football has always been a big part of senior Andrew Dubnicka’s life. He started with flag football in the fifth grade and has not missed a season since. He has always played offensive line, typically at the position of center, but has also played guard in the past. When asked what he enjoys most about the sport, Andrew replied that he likes the competitiveness the sport offers. “I like giving it my all,” said Andrew. He said the coaching staff has given him a great deal of support and for that he is appreciative. “They really care about us beyond practice and games,” said Andrew. “They care about us as people.” Andrew is also on the Sandpoint Bulldog track team where he throws shot put and discus. His honesty shines through when asked what his favorite subject in school is “Lunch,” he responded with a smile. Andrew also enjoys being with his friends and said it has been interesting to see how he has changed over the years at Sandpoint High School. “I’ve matured a lot since freshman year,” said Andrew. After he graduates Andrew plans to go to Boise State and study business. When asked what words of wisdom he can offer the younger members of the football program, Andrew said it is important to never give up no matter how difficult things may be. “When it gets to the tougher times of the season, do not give up. Give it your all and you won’t regret it,”

.J. Buratto Senior running back A.J. Buratto has been playing football since he was in the seventh grade. With the exception of his sophomore year when he attended University High School in Spokane, A.J. has always played for Sandpoint.
He said this year particularly stands out because of the lessons he has learned from the coaching staff. “I like the structure they give us,” said A.J. “They allow us to go with our instincts, and we know what we have to do to win.” He said he has gained a lot of confidence on the field this season and said what he enjoys most about the game is the intensity of the competition.“I have learned how to trust myself more when I am running,” said A.J. “We have learned how to use techniques in games that we have learned in practice.” During his years at Sandpoint High School A.J. said he has participated in many different sports including basketball, tennis and track. “This year I want to play golf and possibly lacrosse,” said A.J. One of his favorite hobbies is frisbee golfing. Next year A.J. plans to attend Bend Community College in Oregon where he will work towards an Associate’s degree in Culinary Arts. He eventually hopes to open his own restaurant. The best advice he said he would like to leave with the younger players in the Bulldog program is that while football may be only a small part of their high school experience,“they should take it seriously and work hard.”
ake McGuire In his previous three years at Sandpoint High School, senior Jake McGuire had not participated in any organized sports. That all changed this year when he decided to go out for the football team. “I’m a rookie,” said Jake. “But it’s the best experience I’ve ever had and something I will always remember.”
Jake, who plays defensive back and special teams, said he enjoys being part of something and feeling so accepted by the team and the coaching staff. A good student, Jake also keeps busy working at Mick Duffs in downtown Sandpoint. He plans to attend college after graduation and said his dream is to play college ball. “Coach Puailoa has inspired me to go to college and try to play college ball,” said Jake, who is interested in studying psychology. He has appreciated the support the entire coaching staff has provided him both on and off the field. He says one thing people do not realize is that the coaches highly stress that it is important to do one’s best academically. He said the coaches’ philosophy is that by excelling academically, a student will achieve higher self-esteem and will gain confidence in all aspects of his or her life. Jake was very impressed with the coaches’ attitudes and how they are always in a good mood and happy to be there coaching the students. “They show up and walk through that door for us every day,” said Jake. “And they are always happy.” He credits the coaches with teaching him to always be positive. “I turn my frown upside down,” said Jake, who adds the coaches have taught him lifelong values and the importance of never putting anyone down but instead of always picking others up. “Many of these kids would not be here if it weren’t for these coaches.” Jake has learned that vision is an important part of life. “You have to see yourself doing it before you do something,” said Jake. Most of all, he praises Coach Puailoa for helping him through some difficult times. Jake lost his father when he was young and Coach Puailoa has become a father figure to him. “He has taught me that I can go and do anything in the world I want to,” said Jake. “He has been there for me whenever I need him and has taught me something new each and every day.” Jake said that the best advice he can give the younger football players on the team is to stick with the program.“There is meaning behind everything he says.”
