Ainuu Getting Time With Toulouse

Fans can watch former HS All American and Liberty HS (Wash.) standout David Ainuu suit up for his Top 14 team in France this weekend.

Ainuu has been playing with the Toulouse Academy, but made his debut for Toulouse two weeks ago against Montpellier, coming on at halftime.

"Part of me is excited and the other part is extremely nervous," said Ainuu. "This is my second game this season with the first team but I feel like nothing has changed in terms of how I felt leading up to this game and against Montpellier."

That first game was a loss for Toulouse - exacerbated by a red card - but Ainuu showed well, got a lot of work done around the field, and played a role in Toulouse's late try.

At only 18, Ainuu is playing in one of the toughest leagues in the world..
