Aussie defensive lineman Adam Gotsis was interviewed by the boys at SEN. Read on for more.Australian defensive lineman Adam Gotsis took the time to talk to the team at SEN1116 about his path to NCAA football and experience at Georgia Tech. Gotsis is now entering his sophomore year after a solid freshman campaign, managing five tackles, including 1.5 tackles for a loss and a sack in 2012. When asked about how he first came to play American football, Adam says he was a typical Aussie kid at first, playing typical Aussie sports. "I wanted a change of sport, so I was looking at rugby clubs, and came across a gridiron flyer,' he told SEN. "Me and my brother went down and it kind of all just happened from there. "In my first year I didn't really do much, it was just me getting the hang of things. And then it kind of took off that second year after just sitting out that year and learning." Playing for the Monash Warriors, he eventually caught the eye of the Outback national team, and represented Australia in the IFAF World Cup. He committed to the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets in January last year. Despite his promise and pro football rumors, Gotsis is quick to remind the SEN team that he's not permitted to make contact with NFL teams (he is, after all, just a sophomore). "We're not really allowed to make contact with them yet, until you're really in your junior year of college, so about three years in," he said. "You know getting a good rep up from a lot the coaches here, and a lot of the guys on the team saying I've got the potential." When asked about football at Georgia Tech he said it's a part of the culture, "It's huge, pretty much anywhere in the South in America, it's huge, it's life." By all accounts he's already made an impact on the team and is set up for a breakout year, and his coaches are more than pleased with his progress. "Some guys are more instinctive than others for whatever reason, and he seems to be more instinctive than most," the team's defensive coordinator Ted Roof told USA Today. "At the same time, he's growing within the game of football. He has really improved from where he was at the start of spring to where he is right now. He's turned into a very, very dependable player." Georgia Tech's first game this season is against Elon, on Saturday August 31 (Sunday morning in Australia).
