KNIGHTS head coach Nelson Maeda on Isley Busch-Matu‘u:

“Isley is a senior and is the heart of our defense. He plays noseguard and defensive tackle. He’s the type of leader that we on the coaching staff really appreciate. He leads by example and he’s got a motor on him and works very hard. He’s in on a lot of plays and probably leads the tea in big plays. He’a also involved in all of our special teams. He’s very consistent and is on a defense that does a lot of stretching and bending and a defense that doesn’t really get recognized.”
