Behind the Facemask: Jimmy Graham
Were you surprised at your level of success last season?
“I wasn’t surprised. I set really lofty goals to start the season. My goals fell right in to place. I am a guy who really reaches for the sky. For me, the goals that I set are literally that high and I was able to reach those last years.”
What inspires you? What motivates you?
“I have a motivation to win. I have a motivation to be the best. I want people to respect me. I want people to call me a hard worker. Those are the things that motivate me. It is really self-motivation. There are not many outside forces, maybe my background. It is just in me to always fight. Even when things are good, I am always thinking of what I am doing wrong or what I could be doing better. For me, there is always a constant urge to get better. There is a constant urge to prove myself.”
Do you have a favorite moment from last season?
“One of my favorite moments last year was playing in Atlanta. I scored a touchdown and whenever I dunked it, I bent the goal-post. Instantly, I felt like it had moved so I looked back and realized it was slanted. That was probably one of my favorite moments from last year for myself.”
Do you have any new dunks planned?
“I do have some new dunks planned. I was working a little bit in the offseason. I saved most of the stuff. I have been doing windmills, 360s and just regular two-handed dunks. I will do a reverse. I have the between-the-legs in my back pocket. That is going to have to be like in the Super Bowl and I just got the game winner and I am just selling out.”
His favorite moment was moving the goalpost against Atlanta, :bng:
He does seem to have matured and developed into a nice young hard working man. Glad for him.
