The Colorado Buffaloes have a pretty confusing situation at the quarterback position this year. Luckily for them, three-year starter Sefo Liufau is finally looking to get back on the field for them this year.
It was reported earlier this week that Liufau has gotten the all-clear this summer, after it was reported that he could miss part of or the entire 2016 season while dealing with a Lis Franc injury he suffered last November.
“He’s ready to go,” head coach Mike MacIntyre said when asked if Liufau would be able to participate in summer camp starting on Aug. 4. “Obviously, we’ll still be careful with him and take all necessary precautions. But his progress has been what we had hoped for. He worked extremely hard throughout the offseason to get to this point and we’re counting on big things from him.”
Liufau talked about his injury and said that despite his coaches being cautious, he will be ready to hit the field with his team.
“I’m ready to go,” he said. “Trainers and coaches are still going to be cautious, but I’ll see everyone in August. Since the day it happened, I was determined to come back and I worked hard to make it happen. Now I’m ready to play football.”
Before his injury, Sefo Liufau had started 29 of the Buffaloes’ last 30 games. He has thrown for nearly 7,400 yards and 49 touchdowns. The Buffaloes open the season against in-state rival Colorado State on Sept. 2.
