Name: Christian Lassiter
School: Central State
Q: What goals did you set and/or accomplish in your final collegiate season?
My Goals ultimately in my final season was to just go hard every play, practice, snap you name I just wanted to go all out what could possibly be my last time playing football.
Q: What would your coaches and teammates say about the type of player you are?
They would say that I’m a hustler I give 100% effort in every play and that I’m very quick off the ball and when it comes down to something that needs to be done in order for us to push through in either a practice or a game, I will do it.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on to improve your game?
I always study what I can do to get a defender off of me. With that being said more so working my hands more and just always moving never stopping while trying to get to the QB.
Q: What separates you from the other pro prospects at your position?
In my film you will notice I can go sideline to sideline and that’s rare when your dealing with interior defensive lineman where always taught to clog wholes etc etc, well it’s different for me, I make plays, I’m very quick off the ball. Sometimes i sike myself out on how quick I’m in the backfield.
Q: What is your offseason plan to train and prepare for professional opportunities?
I actually already started, I’ve been working out trying to stay in shape and always trying to stay ready. That’s what it’s all about honestly, staying ready at any given moment. I have a pro day Feb 22nd, so I have to stay ready.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
First off, I’m a humble type guy that goes for on and off the field. I’m a leader and I love to win. Most importantly, I’m not that type of leader that yells at everyone to do this and that because at the end of the day everyone makes mistakes. Where I lead is making that big play in crunch time or whatever coach needs me to do and as far as off the field, I stand out now by being that example to kids of the youth and even my little cousins, and sisters.
Q: What is your final pitch to the NFL or any other pro leagues?
You will always get 100% effort out of me. If you need me to play a full game due to a lack of bodies, I will do it. I’ve done it in college, like I said, I’m a winner and whatever coaches need me to do to win, I will. My game speaks for itself. I make plays and I guarantee for any team that chooses to pick me, they will see what I bring to the table!
