What got you into football?
Played rugby. Took up college at night and classes ran the same night as training. Missed training and playing team sports but I really missed the contact side of the sports aka hitting/tackling people. Really got the buzz and bug watching FNL and I decided to looking into American football teams since I heard they played on a Sunday and training did not collide with college. Contacted Sid. Turned up to training. Got kitted up and never looked back (well except for the sneaky hitch route) and been loving it ever since!
If you could play any other position, what would it be?
Would really like to double up and play receiver or possibly running back?! But I’m kinda too tall for it.
Do you have a pre game routine?
Nothing unusual yet, just basically the same as pre training practice with the added carbing up and extra hydration the day before. Got a few we odd things to try throwing in the mix since they seemed to work on the weekend I tired them of my first win. But basically. Get a good sleep the night before Wake up. Breakfast , shower, pack kit and go. Music on with head phones as I’m traveling.
What has been the hardest part of this associate year for you?
Trying to settle into a flow on the game day field, the more game time We had the smoother things ran and the more comfortable I felt on the field and could concentrate on doing my job on the field.
Do you have a favourite team
Currently still trying to decided on an NFL Pro teams as there’s a few I like and some I’ve still not seen play. But my hearts with Alabama college football team. It’s Bama Baby!!
Do you have a nickname in the team
As far as I know, nope.
Do you have any goals for the coming season?
Play well, hit hard, improve with every game and go out and post some good scores. Can’t ask much more than that.
