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

Finally getting a chance to use all of the different tools I’ve learned within the last year and using them to my benefit for the team. I will be new to Savannah State so I’m looking forward to building new relationships with my war brothers as well. 

2.What should we know about Le’Vonte Larry the person?

Le’Vonte Larry is the hardest worker and most competitive person you will meet. Each day I wake up, I set out aside someone or some thing that I have to be great for so it’s always for a greater purpose than me. Also, I’m a perfectionist. I constantly find new weaknesses and enjoy turning them to strengths. I work on a “ Good Great Perfect” scale and don’t stop until the rep is perfect. 

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

When I am out on the field, I’m vocal, always high energy rather it is because one of my brothers made a play, I made a play, or even if we are in need for a game changing play. I bring energy to the sideline and get the fans hyped as well. 

4.What sets you apart from other defensive backs?

Physicality and speed. My mindset as well. I know whoever is in front of me they can’t outrun me to a spot so I’m challenging them every time. Also, I show up in the run game with ill intentions. 

5.What past or present NFL coach would you want to learn from the most and why?

Dick Lebeau, he is legendary and just a true defensive mastermind. The ability to trust your coach to put you in the best situations possible on the field. Also, he has coached a lot of great ballers. 

6.How do you prepare for games?

My preparation for games starts the Sunday after each game. All week I take advantage of practice time creating great habits and capitalize on my time in the weight room and training room. I make sure I handle everything early so I can have tunnel vision and relax. Also, I’m constantly watching film for tendencies and route concepts. 

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

Moving to Jesup from Savannah, there wasn’t much else to do so I would play football in the trailer park. Then I realized I actually could be great at a sport. 

8.What is your favorite workout?

Speed workouts in the water. Your so tired but you have to be a dawg because you literally sink or swim. It reminds me I have to always be that shark in the water. 

9.What is a moment that improved you as a football player?

My freshman year at the University of Tennessee Chattanooga improved me the most. After having off the field issues I knew it was time to fully dedicate myself and be all in to football. That was the best thing for me and my career. 

10.How do you handle challenges both in life and on the football field?

I always come positive. You get back what you put into this world so I know that if I stay positive, everything is just a phase. 

11.What is your favorite coverage and why?

If it’s 1st or 2nd down I like zone because I can be versatile and show up in the run game or quick game but if it is 3rd down I love the challenge of man to man and taking the best receiver out of the game on the most critical down of each drive. 

12.Rank focus,footwork and skill based on what is most important to you as a football player and explain why?

  1. Focus, you have to stay focused because it’s easy to get distracted. Also, you have to be locked in to maximize your potential. 
  2. Skill, natural ability can make up for a lot and you can always be coached. 
  3. Footwork, footwork is extremely important and your foundation at corner but it can’t be all you have.
