Mayes hopeful for immediate impact

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. - There are certainly big shoes to fill along the defensive line for the Cal Poly football team. Gone is co-Big Sky Defensive Player of the Year Sullivan Grosz, along with both Mustang starters at defensive end.

Enter Logan Mayes, a transfer with big time talent and FBS experience, he spent the past three seasons at Washington State.

"I would say one of the biggest things the amount of physicality you have to bring on a play to play basis," said Mayes, "you have to bring a higher level."

Mayes was a part-time starter during his time in Pullman, but was considered a pass rush specialist who was too small to stop the run in the PAC-12. He made the move to Cal Poly in part because he wants to be an every down player.

"It's been really good so far, it's been a really good experience," said Mayes, "right now I'm just trying to get into the swing of things, getting to know the scheme and what not."

Mayes has been spending most of his time this Spring at Defensive End with occasional reps at Outside Linebacker.

Wherever he winds up this Fall, he'll be prepared to make an immediate impact.

"I feel like i can definitely contribute a lot to this team, it's just a matter of everyone getting going and getting on the same page."
