In the latest episode of Humboldt Last Week (12:33): Humboldt State University student Alex Cappa is very likely going to be the first HSU football player drafted into the NFL since 1991, and he certainly didn’t shy away from any hot topics surrounding his sport in a recent interview.

“Right now I’m focused on the team goals,” Cappa said. “Everyone wants to focus on the personal goals but those things come along when you have success as a team.”

In the podcast Cappa discusses teamwork, NFL players kneeling during the National Anthem in protest of police brutality and racial inequality, concussion research related to NFL players, why he’s not playing for a larger school, and his love for the HSU football program as there’s talk of ending it.

The interview begins at 12:33.
