Thanks, again, to Ryan (VanRam) for sending me these questions. I'm having a blast answering them ;-)
The next talking point from Ryan's questionnaire was...
Name a unique skillset you bring to each position (free safety & strong safety).
At free safety, I feel confident in my ability to be able to scope out eeeeevery little thing that's happening on the field - being able to do this helps me get a good feel for what the quarterback and everyone else is about to do. By having such a strong sense of awareness about my surroundings, I'm really able to step up my game.
At strong safety, I definitely bring a lot of physicality to the game. I LOVE making big hits, so I really try to take advantage of the opportunities that come along to take someone out. If you're a running back who's coming my way, expecting to gain extra yards, I can promise you you're not going to make it, because I'm going to come through and clean house - that's just my mentality. If there's a chance to land a good shot on the opposing offense, you can bet I'm gonna take it.
