NFL Draft Diamonds Prospect Interview: Trent Sieg, LS, Colorado State University
What is your name?
What is your Height/Weight?
What is your position?
Where do you play college football?
Colorado State University.
Where are you from?
Who is your role model, and why?
My role model is my father because everything he does has been to help my siblings and me to succeed at whatever we want to do. That is the kind of father I want to be.
Who was your favorite teacher?
Mr. Maio was my favorite teacher. He made science entertaining with all his experiments so we could observe natural phenomena instead of just read about it.
Did you play any other sports growing up?
Yes, I played baseball, basketball through high school.
Who was the toughest player you ever faced?
Kaelin Clay was probably the best returner I faced.
Who is the most underrated player on your team?
Wyatt Bryan, our Kicker. He struggled a bit in his first season, but he has grown into one of the more accurate kickers in CSU history.
What is the one song that would fire you up before the biggest game of your life?
Down With the Sickness by Disturbed
If you could compare your play to one player in the NFL who would it be and why?
Aaron Brewer. I am about the same height as him and he is a very consistent snapper. You know right where the ball will be every time, and that is what I pride myself on as well.
What was the biggest obstacle in your life you had to overcome, and how did you overcome it?
My biggest obstacle I had to face in my life is probably coming into CSU as a walk-on. I had practically earned my scholarship when Coach McElwain was at CSU, we were just waiting for an extra scholarship to open up. Then, he left CSU to be the coach at Florida, and I had to start earning my spot all over again with Coach Bobo. Thankfully, Coach Bobo was aware of the situation and realized my worth to the team by the time spring ball was over.
Do you have any pre-game rituals?
I always walk in a figure-8 around the field when we first arrive at the stadium. Then I take a panorama picture of the stadium from midfield.
What was the most memorable play of your collegiate career?
We were in a close game against Fresno State, and we had to punt from our own 2-yard line. The returner started to break free. I was the last person between him and the end zone, and I tackled him in the open field to save the touchdown.
What is the coolest thing you ever did off the field for someone else?
I was driving at night and saw the car in front of me lose control, hit the ditch, and flip upside down. I helped the driver out of the car. Thankfully she seemed fine, but I called an ambulance for her to make sure she was alright.
Who was your favorite NFL team growing up?
My hometown team the Denver Broncos
If you could have dinner with three people dead or alive, who would you choose?
Peyton Manning and Terrell Davis for obvious reasons. Also, Robert Goddard because he is the father of modern rocketry.
