Name: Famus Hasty
School: Wisconsin-Whitewater
Position: DB
Height: 5’10”
Weight: 190

Q: What goals did you accomplish heading into your final collegiate season?

One major goal accomplished was being conference champs and going undefeted all the way until the semi finals in the playoffs. Being an All-American and being invited to multiple Senior Bowls, Showcases, and Combines was also some big accomplishments I had.

Q: What would your coaches say about the type of player you are?

They would say I’m trustworthy, passionate, and humble. You can rely on me to get the job done.

Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on to improve your game?

I focus on the receivers tendencies. I look at the type of receiver they are, their strengths, weaknesses, and how they release and run routes against press and off corners. I look at the corners they played against previously to see what they did against each other and what worked and what didn’t. I also look at the popular formations and their most popular route concepts.

Q: What separates you from the other players at your position?

My ability to lockdown receivers consistently. My quickness against shifty and fast receivers. My physicality and strength against tall and strong receivers. My ballhawking ability. The ability I have to adapt to anything I need to in order to be successful.

Q: How will you train and prepare this offseason for the draft or other pro opportunities?

I train at Acceleration Pro in Illinois. We have people in college, free agents, and players in different leagues, so I get a very unique opportunity. I prepare for any opportunity that may come.

Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?

You can trust me on and off the field to do the right thing. I was raised to be a gentleman and respectful of everyone even if they aren’t to me.

Q: What is your final pitch or sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?

Many people may dismiss someone in my position because I come from a small school. They assume I don’t have what it takes to compete at the next level. When I was in high school, people thought I wasn’t good enough to play in college. Then, I went to the best D3 football team there is. Then, people said they’re too good and I wouldn’t get any playing time, so I ended up playing all 4 years and being a starter for 3 and ended my career as an All-American. Now they say I don’t have what it takes to make it to the next level, so now all I need is the opportunity to prove them wrong again.
