1.What should we know about Ayden Eberhardt the person?

So as a person, I value my family over anything but I’m a really happy person and I enjoy being with other people and having fun. I love football. And I am a very determined person and I work for whatever I want.

2.What is your favorite route and why? 

I think my favorite route is anything over the middle of the field because you are always going up against someone and I feel like my strength is catching 50/50 balls.

3.What is your mindset when you are on the football field?

Is basically to win the game. I play wide receiver but I also play special teams and I am returning this year. So at the end of the day, I do what I can to win.

4.What are your favorite things about playing football for Wyoming?

Would have to be all the support with the fans and coaches. Surrounded by awesome support of people and fan base that supports the school.

5.What is your favorite workout?

Squats, I love leg days but squats help in every single aspect and explosiveness.

6.If you could hang out with any football player past or present for a day who and why? 

I would have to say, Adam Thielen. I model my game after him and he has a great story. So being able to meet with him, and talk with him would be cool.

7.What sets you apart from other wide receivers?

That I am not scared to get hit and I am willing to put my body on the line to get any 50/50 balls or anything like that. Not a lot of receivers play special teams and are able to go down and make a tackle which is one of my strengths.

8.What made you decide you wanted to be a football player?

So when I was a little kid my dad would always watch football and introduced me to the sport and he played college football and coached me in high school a little. So he passed me down the love for the game.

9.What are your favorite moments from your football life?

1. At the Arizona Bowl I had a pretty nice little play that ended up on Sportscenter top 10 plays and the crowd was electric so it’s something I remember forever.

2. Catching balls for Josh Allen at his pro day seeing Troy Aikman along with 32 NFL team coaches will be something I will remember forever.

10.What would a team get in a player like you?

A team-first guy and someone that’s going to play and do anything to help a team win. And they would also get someone who is competitive and determined. 

11.What type of energy do you bring onto the football field?

So I am a pretty vocal person and I’m also willing to lead with my actions. So they would be getting someone willing to lead day in and day out and bring positive energy.

12.What are you looking forward to in your upcoming season?

Having another opportunity to win another Mountain West conference championship.
