Hello, I am @jrberendzen on Twitter and this is one of my free agent interviews where I ask very deserving free agents questions about the players themselves and about what a team would get in these players. All of these players should get picked up by NFL, CFL, and XFL teams and get a shot at being a career football player. So I hope you all read his interview and follow his journey on Twitter @Jordon_Londo
1.What sets you apart from other defensive backs?
What sets me apart from other DB’s I couldn’t really tell you, I don’t compare to anybody other than myself, I could care less what the next man does! What I will say I have always been versatile, and athletic, with great football IQ, you often hear about BB’s being WR who can’t catch, I do not fall in that category. I have great hands and I know how to make plays when we need them.
2.If you could hang out with any football player past or present for a day who and why?
If I could hang out with any football player past or present it would have to be OBJ his energy is great and he seems like a cool dude to be around, a happy guy. He plays WR too so we can get work against each other at anytime.
3.What type of energy do you bring onto the football field?
The energy I bring on to the field is focus and controlled aggression, the effort comes naturally! Loafing is not an option! I make sure my guys are good because I am big on being a team player you cannot play with ten guys on the field because the 11th one is tired or hurt, we are only as good as him, so I make it my job to make sure everyone is good on and off the field.
4.What role do you hope to have if you make it into the NFL?
I hope to get my team a conference championship and so on and so forth, I been playing ball since I was 5 and till this day I still do not care about the individual awards, I WANT TO WIN with my brothers. With out them I don’t succeed, it is a team sport, a brotherhood, we all play our parts!
5.What do you hope to achieve as a football player going forward?
What I hope to achieve is to continue to play ball after college ,being at a NAIA so many people get discouraged and stope chasing their dreams if they don’t make it to a big time school, I want to change that and give hope to those at small school that are not afraid to say they want to play professional football, or basketball, or what ever their dreams are.
6.What made you decide you wanted to be a football player?
What made me play football was when I saw it up close for so long I wanted to be a dancer and my dad was like “come see your brother play” and from then on I knew football was something I found interesting, I was able to need some of his players and all and how close they were, the brother hood, and seeing the blood and sweat, yea that’s when I knew football was what I wanted to do.
7.What is a skill that you have that you think translates into the NFL well?
What skills I feel I can bring to the NFL is how versatile I am, I can play any skilled position on the field I play all special teams I can long snap field goal holder and all. Dancing definitely helped my flexibility, I can make catches that some would “you shouldn’t be able to do that” I am very physical don’t let my smile fool you, I play mean and I have sweet feet, I have always got two feet in doesn’t matter what level I’m playing because I’ve always knew what I have been training for!
8.What is your favorite workout?
My favorite workout would be anything track related such as 110’s and intervals those are two workouts that get me right and build my endurance up tremendously. when it comes to the weight room power cleans are my favorite. The explosiveness needed to get that heavy weight up is amazing, and it is a technical type of lift and I believe in doing the little things right and power cleans let’s you know if you are doing the little things right.
9.What is a moment in your football career that improved you as a football player?
The moment in my career that improved me as a football player was when football was taken from me and I saw it from the coaches eye, like I stated earlier I been playing since I was 5 and to have it taken away from me was the real challenge I faced, I had a choice to call a quite or better myself on the off season and come back better, and of course I chose to grind all year long, and also My football IQ went up when I saw football as a coach and it made me understand more of why things are done the way they are done.
10.What would a team get in a player like you?
What a team would get in a player like me is everything they are missing on that team, doesn’t matter what it is. From my attitude to my gameplay I make it happen, I am coachable most importantly, I know how to take criticism and not get in my feelings, I play through the whistle, I run through the lines not to the lines, I do not wait until the last rep to go all out, I play fast all day and night because I know my WHY! I know why I’m doing it and who I am doing it for!
11.What is your mindset when you are on the football field?
My mindset when I am on the field is to make plays get the ball back to my offense, Always trying to make a play, but make them by doing my job, apply all the drills I’ve done at practice in the game, always watching film on who I am up against and pick up on tendency’s, the goal is always to win the game but if we are not doing our jobs then that won’t happen!
12.What are your favorite moments from your football life?
I’d say my favorite moments from my football life are the locker room pregame and after a good win those are the moments I live for to know that what we been grinding for pays off. I also like when we on the field and everyone is breathing hard but we know we are not done yet and have to leave it all on the field, it’s something about everyone hurting and tired together that is fulfilling to me.
