Pledge Chris Seisay looks forward to visit

9/7/2012

After helping his school to a 2-0 start, Oregon commit Chris Seisay (American Canyon, Calif./American Canyon) hopes to make it 3-0 with a big performance on Friday night.

After the game, Seisay will pack his bags and board a plane on Saturday morning to fly to Eugene for his official visit.

"I'm getting picked up at like five in the morning and I land in Eugene around 9:30 a.m.," Seisay said. "I'm real excited to get up there and check 0ut Autzen Stadium during a game. I have heard that place on TV but I want to experience it live. It should be a great experience."

Seisay, who committed to the Ducks this summer after earning an offer at the Ducks' summer camp, was able to tour the campus and the facilities during that unofficial visit this summer. His parents will be joining him on this trip and he hopes they see everything that made him fall in love with the Oregon program.

"I've already seen everything up there. I was sold from the word go. I just want my parents to be able to see everything as well so that they feel comfortable with where I'll be," Seisay said. "I just want to take it all in and enjoy the weekend after we get this win."

The 6-foot-2, 185-pound Seisay plays both ways for American Canyon, which has seniors on the team for the first time. Seisay is a part of the first senior class in school history and he hopes to continue the upward climb for his team.

"Last year we went 4-6, but we didn't have a single senior. This year we feel like we have a good shot at making a run," Seisay said. "We have some tough guys and some good young players as well."

One of those young players, Seisay's counterpart in the American Canyon secondary, will be joining him in Eugene for the weekend.

"My teammate Malik Beachum (American Canyon, Calif./American Canyon) will be there this weekend too. He's flying up for an unofficial visit" Seisay said. "He plays across from me and he has a lot of talent. He already has some schools talking to him and he really wants to see what Oregon is all about."
