Arkansas offensive lineman Sebastian Tretola can’t avoid getting dirty on the football field. He goes toe-to-toe with sweaty defensive linemen on every play, and constantly falls to the ground, scuffing up his jersey time and time again.
On the football field that’s acceptable.
The 6-foot-5, 334-pound offensive lineman is a scary looking dude with dreads flowing out the back of his helmet, and plays angry on the gridiron. But off the field, Tretola likes an air of calm around him and is a certified neat freak.
This quote says it all.
“Since that day, they’ve never touched my locker again,” Tretola told bellinghamherald.com’s Kurt Voigt. “It’s like that in my room where I live, too. If it’s not like this, I think about it all day. It will just be sitting in my head all day, irritating me like, ‘I didn’t fold those pair of shorts.”
In an article published on bellinghamherald.com, Voigt tells the story of how Arkansas right tackle Dan Skipper messed with Tretola’s locker early last season. Supposedly, Tretola “tried to fight everyone that was named.”
Getting into a scuffle doesn’t seem like the smartest thing to do, especially with a big man like Tretola. Chances are that this won’t be happening again.
