Former Humboldt State University lineman and current Buccaneers guard Alex Cappa took time to answer some questions for the Outpost last week leading up to today’s game against the Raiders.
The game was initially scheduled to be on Sunday Night Football, where starting players like Cappa traditionally get personal intros and announce their former universities. However, the matchup was bumped to an afternoon game in favor of the Seahawks-Cardinals game.
Some classic SNF intros.
While HSU alumni will likely have to wait for another season to watch Cappa get his big SNF intro, the 6-foot-6-inch guard did share with the Outpost what he might have said, given the opportunity.
“I might have said ‘Lumberjack Iron’ as a little shout out to the strength program,” Cappa told Bucs spokesperson Chris King.
In the quick interview, Cappa also discusses what it’s like blocking for future Hall of Famer Tom Brady and how he feels about playing against his favorite childhood team. Listen to the full interview in the video embedded above.
Today’s Buccaneers-Raiders game kicks off at 1:05 p.m. on FOX.
