  Even under the old USC defensive scheme, safeties were vital playmakers for the Trojans. Last season alone, Talanoa Hufanga finished second on the team with 90 tackles, despite missing three games, and Isaiah Pola-Mao finished third with 73 takedowns. But under new defensive coordinator Todd Orlando, safeties like Hufanga and Pola-Mao will take on a new role, one their position coach describes as "the quarterbacks of the defense."

Safeties in the new scheme will be tasked with relaying plays from the sidelines and putting their teammates in the right spots before the snap. It's not the most natural job for players like Hufanga and Pola-Mao, who are known as leaders by example instead of being vocal in the locker room or field. But both are embracing this new role. It's not necessarily new for Hufanga, who actually played quarterback in high school. And both recognize the importance of the job. "On the field, you're going to be vocal. I think that's regardless of being a quiet guy, or a loud guy," Hufanga said. "For me, I think it's going to be the same. I want to lead and help guys, whether I'm in a vocal role or not." - Orange County Register
