Behind the Facemask: Jed Collins
 
1 Attachment(s)
What is your game day routine?

“I usually wake up and have breakfast. If it is an early game, I will have some eggs, a piece of chicken, and I will split a waffle with Brian de la Puente, our center. Then, I will quickly glance at our first 15 (plays) and the plays that I will be in. I enjoy journaling so I will write down my thoughts on who we are playing, where I am in my life, and the preparation for the game. It is such a production that it is neat to see how my mindset changes week in and week out. Then I shower and before every game I take one lap around the field. I don’t touch the field yet, but I really enjoy and take in, if we are in a new stadium or at home in the dome, just a little moment to myself to enjoy living the dream that I get to experience every Sunday.”


What music do you listen to on game day?

“Yeah. I get made fun of a lot, mostly from Brian, but I am kind of an emo-music guy. I enjoy kind of like deep screaming sometimes. I like anything that will hit me or hit a chord and strike my emotions. Some of it is depressing but it all speaks to me in different ways.”


What about your music choice on other days?

“It is very different. I enjoy up-tempo music. My father and Joe Lombardi have gotten me more into Jazz music being down here. It has kind of opened my eyes into that. I really enjoy listening to some Jazz while I am reading and things. Then, I enjoy top 40’s hits. It is cliché and probably looked down upon in this locker room. Pop music on off-days, I like moving around and dancing and stuff like that so if I can move around and dancing and stuff like that so if I can sing along and dance to it, I will listen to it.”


What do you like to do when you are not working?

“I am an easy-going guy. I probably need to get more hobbies. I have really enjoyed reading. I read a lot. I read four or five books at a time, all kind of different topics. I enjoy journaling and writing and I hope, one day, to turn that into a hobby and a career. Mostly, when I am not playing football, this offseason, I took two of my courses for certification in financial planning. That is what takes up my offseason, studying. Having a good time and hanging out with friends is where I want to be.”

“They seem more assignment-focused. They seem like they are understanding that defense is an 11-man game and as long as they are taking care of their responsibility, everybody else is going to fall in to line. The positive energy Spags (Steve Spagnuolo) puts off kind of vibrates throughout the guys and I really enjoy that.”
Thats quite the stab at GW. Kinda makes you understand why D has been a problem the last couple years.

First TD was a surprise TD against GB in the first game last year, if I remember correctly. I have appreciated him ever since.

These interviews are great.

We need our own, Halo! LOL
