Coach Richard Davis had this to say about Pope: "He seems like a great kid. I talked to a lot of the Bemidji State Football staff, including Coach Bolte, and they raved about how much of a handful Elby was when he played against BSU. They told me he is a great athlete and will be a great addition to the Axemen Family."
