NFL Draft Diamonds Prospect Interview: Bear Fenimore, QB, Saint Francis (PA)

NFL Draft Diamonds has interviewed some of the best small schoolers to make it to the NFL.  Last year our team interviewed over 750 players from NAIA to the FBS.  This year we went to NFL teams scouts for every question on this interview.  Ten NFL scouts who are avid readers of Draft Diamonds put this interview together for our readers pleasure.  We hope you enjoy this interview, with another potential NFL draft prospect.

Tell us about your hometown, and what you love most about it?
  • I’m from Austin, Tx and what I love most about it is that I’m an outdoorsy person and there’s a lot of great lakes and trails to go to.
List these three in order of importance and why: Film Study, Strength and Conditioning and Practice? 
  • Film study, practice, and strength conditioning. Nothing is more valuable than preparation and getting mental reps! You can take more reps mentally than you can physically and there’s a lot of people who dominate strength & conditioning but don’t know their alignment or assignments.
What do you worry about, and why?
  •  I worry about not doing all that I can because I will never get a season or a play back. I don’t want “what if”
Give me an example of when you failed at something. How did you react and how did you overcome failure?
  •  I’ve failed at many things and I can’t think of one specific moment but if I do fail at something i just know that time doesn’t stop for no one and all you can do is keep moving along with time and not make the same mistake twice. 
What do your teammates say is your best quality?
  • My anticipation on throws to wr’s coming out of the break.
Who is the best player you have ever played against in college?
  • When I was at the university of Houston I would practice against Ed Oliver and you see what he does against other opponents so imagine that in practice. 
What would your career be if you couldn’t play football? 
  •  HR or Athletic Administration 
Room, desk and car – which do you clean first?
  • Room because you can immediately get out of bed and make it and just like that your already accomplished one of hopefully many more things throughout the day.
If there was a disaster and you could either save three strangers or one family member, which would you choose and why?
  •  I would want everybody to be saved but my family member would be my choice because I couldn’t and wouldn’t want to be without my family.
If you could be any television or movie character, who would you be and why?
  •  Yusuke Urameshi from Yu Yu Hakusho. Growing up it was one of my favorite shows and It would be cool to have spirt powers and know that I’m the protector of the world. He always finds a way to win even when it seems like there’s no chance that he can do it. 
What was the biggest obstacle in your life you had to overcome, and how did you overcome it? 
  •  I lost three family members in a span of 6 months and it was devastating to me but time stops for no one and all I could do was be thankful for the moments I shared with them and continue to make them proud. 
What is your most embarrassing moment?
  •  My senior year of high school during our homecoming game in torrential downpour I had a punt that went one yard… 
What was the most memorable play of your collegiate career?
  •  We were on the road at Liberty a few games after they beat Baylor and it was in late in the game I threw a sluggo to Kam Lewis for a pretty deep touchdown and he made a terrific catch and as he came down for the touchdown the stadium quickly went silent to where you could hear a pen drop. We ended up winning the game and it was special for me because it was my first start on the road.
What song best describes your work ethic?
  •  Bulls on parade by rage against the machine
What is the most important trait you can have (Physical or Non Physical) to help you succeed at the next level? 
  • Confidence, there’s going to be people who thinks your not good or doesn’t want you to succeed so believing in yourself and your skill set is important because nobody wants to play with someone who’s afraid to make a mistake or what people thinks of that person.
If you could bring one person back from the dead for one day, who would it be and why?
  •  My uncle, he was the closest family member I had outside my parents and was as real as they come. He didn’t sugar coat anything and really inspired me. 
If you were to open a dance club, what would you name it? 
  •  Haha… I would go with the bear cave. 
Who is the most overrated player in the NFL? 
  •  I think if you make it to the NFL there’s so many talented guys that there’s really no overrated player. 
Would you rather be liked or respected, and why?
  •  I would rather be respected because leaders are more respected than liked. 
What player who had his career derailed by off-field issues do you feel for the most and why?
  • I don’t keep up or comment on players off the field issues, each player has their own reasons for doing things and make their own choices and I don’t feel that it’s appropriate to comment on what off-field issues they may or may not have.
