Ena Catching on at DE for Fever

Posted: Updated:
KENNEWICK, Wash - The Tri-Cities Fever are at Spokane Saturday, and they've been getting a lift at defensive end from a former Prosser quarterback.
Tali Ena has spent his first year with the Fever trying to make an impact on the D-line. It was slow going at first for the 6-5 245 pounder. He played poorly in the opener, and then was banished to the inactive list. He couldn't crack the active roster until two few weeks ago. Since then he's really stepped up. Ena had his best game Saturday in the win over Bossier, posting three tackles.
"I feel real confident playing defensive end and nose now," said Ena. "As opposed to the opener when I was just trying to use talent and speed, but now I know a lot of moves and techniques and have a feel for the position a lot more."
