KVAL reported that Costa saw this and his “dream job” and that he was approaching the job with the same desire and positive attitude that he approached football with the Ducks. Go Ducks wrote that Costa was voted Most Inspirational Player in 2010, which goes hand in hand with his new job.

Costa believes that the injuries he sustained during his time playing football for the Ducks, gave him the skills that he now needs to be a police officer.

KTVL adds that his training will begin in August with a 16-week training program at the Oregon Public Safety Academy in Salem. Costa excitement stems from the fact that he won’t have to “sit behind a desk all day.”
