I have had the privilege of conducting a plethora of interviews this year while working for BCP but I can honestly say I have never had a better interview then when I talked to Richard Bush this Sunday. The 6’2 and 255lb offensive guard is an excellent speaker who is thrilled to be a part of the Plant Football tradition.

Question: You’re going to be a part of the BCP Ignite Camp this weekend what are your expectations?
Answer: I am excited to work with the best of the best in the Bay area. Last year I went as a sophomore and was able to make a name for myself. I am one of the few 2014 guys on offensive line that earned a BCP ranking. I am excited to see what I can do this year and want to prove I’m the best interior o-lineman in the Bay.

Q: Why are you so excited about the Ignite camp?
A: It is an amazing one-on-one camp that puts you in the trenches against the best d-linemen the Bay area has to offer. It gets monotonous in high school practice going up against the same guys who use the same moves over and over. This gives me a chance to see some new competition and to prove myself.

Q: How is recruiting going?
A: I have no favorites but I am getting a ton of mail from USF, UCF, West Virginia, Utah and Boise State. My biggest decision right now is determining if I want to go to a big football factory or an Ivy League school. I have over a 4.0 GPA and think that the Ivy League might be a better fit for my future after football.

Q: How excited were you when you heard that Coach Weiner was coming back to Plant?
A: I actually got my phone taken away because I was showing all the kids the news on Twitter. The two days he was gone were the most nerve-racking days of my life. I was terrified about going into my senior season with a new coach and a new system. I thought that we were going to half to rebuild the whole program. When I saw that he was coming back I was elated.

Q: What are your expectations for Plant next year?
A: We are out to prove we are the best team in Florida. I feel that we have a real special group of seniors this year and we have a lot to prove especially since we ended last year short of our state title goal.
