10 QUESTIONS WITH TIM DUCKWORTH


Who's the one figure in football you admire the most?
"Warren Sapp. He's just a crazy guy. I used to play like him. Plus, I used to play defense. That was the reason I always admired him. I liked the way he played."

Any pre-game superstitions?
"No man, none at all. Just listen to my radio and get ready to go."

Who was your favorite coach, high school or college?
"High school would have to be Shannon White. College would have to be Terry Price. Shannon White was my head coach in high school. He was a guy that looked out for me after my dad passed away. Coach Price was a guy that actually taught me everything that I know when I was playing defense."

Who's your favorite musical artist?
"I listen to a lot of Hank. Hank Williams Jr. I love it, man. He tells a story. If it's Hank Jr., Hank Sr., I love them all."

What's your favorite pre-game meal?
"Pasta. Just take in all the carbs I can."

What is your best football memory?
"Winning the championship. Winning the Super Bowl."

Who is your biggest fan?
"My family. They're always there for me. They're always rooting me on."

If you weren't playing football what career would you pursue?
"Farming. Chicken houses, cows, that's something that I want to do. Even once I'm done, that's exactly where I'm going to."

What other position would you like to play?
"Running back, because I want to score a touchdown."

What's your favorite sport other than football?
"Baseball. It takes a real true athlete to hit that small ball. Definitely, baseball."

Re: 10 QUESTIONS WITH TIM DUCKWORTH

I do. Anybody who likes Hank Jr. and wants to be a farmer is somebody I can relate to. Most guys his age still want to waste their time going to clubs and all that dumbassedness. I'll bet he's saving his money, and when some of the millionaires are filing for bankruptcy, he'll be cashing in for his farm, and riding around with his kids on 4-wheelers. just living right.

We dont think about these guys a lot, but I have nothing but admiration for guys who sweat thru training camp, do all the work, take the same beating the regulars take, and get none of the glory. They're Rudy.

So what if they have only a small chance of making the roster. Put yourself in his shoes. Its still a paying gig. You need to work. You owe it to your wife & kids to get up off your butt, get out there and sweat, and make that money--same as the plumber, only he doesnt have to plumb. He can make an NFL practice squad. But its easier to plumb.

You and me dont have enough football ability to make an NFL practice squad. We'd probably throw up our guts from the running, or go home crying to mama from the hits. I have much admiration for these men.

Duckworth came over after practice when I was at TC in Mississippi in '07. The only thing I can think of that would be harder than a Saints training camp workout in 100 degree heat, would be going thru a Saints training camp workout in 100 degree heat, and then going over to deal with other people's kids. Tim Duckworth came over and did just that, signing stuff for the crowd of fans, and even posing with my kids for pictures. Ordinary people would have ran away to the air conditioning.
very nice to my kids, as was Pierre Thomas and Marvin Mitchell. I love the guy.
