"I want to be a hero for Madoka": Steve Takakamo

Despite visiting Mitakihara University on Homecoming Week, MiTSS Angels wide receiver Steve Hazuki Takakamo wasn't so sure if the Magi were the right team to play for. Ohio State was still in the running. Fast forward one week later, and it was decided: Steve was going to play for Madoka.

"I realized, this is my team, I need to play for them, I want to be a star for the Magi," Takakamo said. "My father, Ron, used to be a coach at Madoka and he was a player, too. And my grandmothers, Shizuno and Ako, also told me that I needed to carry the weight for them. My grandmother Shizuno used to be a coach herself when she was younger. She coached the special teams.

"I didn't want to let my family down so yesterday, I called up Coach Kaname over the landline and I told him, I want to join. I'm ready. That's what I told him. After I talked for a little bit more about my plans and what I want to do as a member of the Magi, I hung up, took a deep breath, and relaxed. The decision process was over, and I didn't have to do anything else other than focus on my final year in high school.

"I know that they have a really good receiver in Dee Dee Sonoda. He's a nice person and I got a chance to meet him against because I think he used to be one of the first people I'd meet on campus. He'd tell me about the adventures his two mothers had and the Ramones all over and over again. And then he would say, 'I want you to follow me to where I'm going. You may have other options, but if you follow me, you won't go wrong.'

"I didn't think he would be a NostraDeemus but in the end, he knew I was going to join him. Now I get to be reunited with him for another two years. I am excited to make my dad and my grandparents proud and play for Mitakihara next year. I want to be a hero for Madoka. I'm ready to do my best."
