Adam Marchetti

Adam Marchetti’s approach to football is a coach’s dream.

The Grade 12 student at Cowichan Secondary School they call Salsa adds spice to the winning formula of the Cowichan Midget Bulldogs as they attempt to go deep in the Vancouver Mainland Football League playoffs.

“Just hit ‘em hard, don’t finish last, don’t give ‘em any breathing room,’’ said Marchetti of his football philosophy.

“I like his intensity,’’ Midget Bulldogs’ head coach Doug (Opie) Williams said of Marchetti.

“Not only is he good for us in games, but he makes the whole line better. He brings that same intensity during practice.’’

Williams and the coaching staff give him free reign to a certain point.

“If he screws up, I’m yelling at him,’’ Williams chuckled.

Football as his chosen sport just clicked for Marchetti after about two weeks initially.

The fact he loves to hit makes him a natural to rack up the sacks and tackles at defensive tackle.
