Carolina Signs Offensive Lineman Bill Vavau

January 17, 2019 - National Arena League (NAL) - Carolina Cobras News Release

GREENSBORO - Carolina makes a big move, signing offensive lineman Bill Vavau (6'4", 320) from Utah State for 2019.

Vavau played in ten games for the Massachusetts Pirates in 2018, including their 50-36 loss to the Columbus Lions in the playoff semi-finals. Prior to his time with the Pirates, Vavau played ball for the Spokane Empire in 2017 and with the Colorado Crush from 2015-2016, with both teams coming from the IFL.

"Every season we have played against Bill he has been a headache on the field and a class act off it," says head coach Billy Back. "He was a total dominant player this past season for Massachusetts on both sides of the ball. We look forward to having him do the same here, this is a huge signing for us," Back finishes ecstatically.

The respect is mutual between the two, with Vavau stating, "Coach Back is the reason why I decided to pick the Cobras. He takes care of his team and respects them as more than just players." Vavau adds, "He knows I'm a team player who will leave it on the field day in and day out."

Vavau played at Snow College from 2011-2012 before playing in 16 games for the Utah State Aggies from 2013-2014. He originates from West Jordan, Utah, where he played football at Jordan High School.
