Queen Creek High School graduate Isaia Glass is entering his third season with ASU and has a lot of weight being put on his shoulders to lead the newcomers following a solid 2022 season.

Glass started all 12 games for the Sun Devils in 2022 after appearing in six games in his freshman 2021 season. He followed in his dad’s footsteps going to ASU after his father, Paul Glass, played defensive line at Arizona State from 2000-01.

However, the 6-foot-5, 295-pound Glass was not satisfied with how the team played in general last year, as they ended with a 3-9 record.

“I think the biggest chip on my shoulder personally is going 3-9 last year,” Glass said. “And then everyone that was here last year, … we all share that same thing.”

Glass shared what he wants to improve on going into fall camp.

“Understanding rules to the defense,” he said of what he wants to get better at the most. “So understanding just different blitzes, different formations and just like what we can do out of that. Different pressures, safety rotations, different alignments. Just more of the defensive side, like I said, just understanding their rules, so I kind of have an idea of what’s coming when I see it.”

In terms of the 50+ newcomers coming in, Glass said the transition has been pretty easy.

“I think we’ve brought a really good group of guys in that aren’t a bunch of knuckleheads,” Glass said. “I feel like (they’re) guys that you really don’t have to worry about, guys you don’t have to drag along. Really just just handle their business.”

Glass knows that the offensive line will be key to success in the new ASU offense.

“It will be very important, very crucial,” Glass said of the offensive line. “I think for any offense the o-line is I feel like kind of the heart of the offense and if the o-line’s rolling I feel like the offense will roll too. If we block for the running back, we have running backs that are gonna find the hole and find the end zone. If we block for the quarterback, he’s gonna have time to go find the receivers that we have a lot of them and make plays. So if we do our job, which I believe we can, then everything fall into place 100%.”
