Name: Calvin Milliner
Q: What goals did you set and/or accomplish in your final collegiate season?
My main goal in my final collegiate season was to become a leader on and off the field. Additionally, I wanted to help my team win another NE10 championship but we came up short.
Q: What would your coaches and teammates say about the type of player you are?
My coaches and teammates would say that I’m in love with this game. The way I approach the game is very passionate, it means a lot to me. And with playing the game understanding and loving the people I play with and for!
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on to improve your game?
When I study film, I make sure I pay attention to every detail. From posture, to alignment, to personnel, to the down and distance, even to certain routines opposing players do. Each week our scheme may change due to the specific plays or players another team have. Noticing things like a running backs alignment or how heavy the offensive lineman is in his stance may allow me to be a step ahead in the game.
Q: What separates you from the other pro prospects at your position?
I’d say my ability to move and my instincts. Being able to run sideline to sideline and make plays is what I pride myself on. My athleticism at my position is definitely standout and I have trained so much at perfecting my position, it’s really second nature. Therefore, my ability to move will allow me to be able to play all over the field.
Q: What is your offseason plan to train and prepare for professional opportunities?
While, I was at school I was training at “Exceed” with trainer Sean Smith getting ready for my pro day. But due to COVID-19, I had to go back home to New York. Therefore, I will be training with my trainer/brother, Alex Coombs at “About U.”
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
On the field, I am a very physical player. I pride myself in hitting hard and making sure the other team feels me. Doing this brings energy to my team and makes our confidence go through the roof, trying to get that win. Off the field, I’m looking to be the best teammate I can possibly be.
Q: What is your final pitch to the NFL/CFL or any other pro leagues?
You take a chance on me, you will not be disappointed. All I need is an opportunity. I truly am a student of the game, I’m coachable, and I love this game.
