Joseph Ross: 2020 Pro Prospect Interview
Name: Joseph Ross
School: Fort Valley State
Q: What goals did you set and/or accomplish in your final collegiate season?
Playing my last year of eligibility as grad transfer, my goals were to dominate my opponents and have fun. Going into each game of course I’m scouting my opponent but the ultimate goal was to empty the tank and have no regrets.
Q: What would your coaches and teammates say about the type of player you are?
My coaches and teammates will say that I am a true competitor, coachable, eager to learn, and have true passion and desire for the game.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on to improve your game?
When I’m studying film a few things I focus on are coverages, DB’s strengths and weaknesses, and how disciplined the team is.
Q: What separates you from the other pro prospects at your position?
What’s separates me from other pro prospects at my positions is that I love blocking, I can get you yards after catch, I play with a chip on my shoulder because nobody gave me anything. I work my way up from being a walk on. Another thing that separates me from other athletes that I’m willing to make a play and I don’t take days off.
Q: What is your offseason plan to train and prepare for professional opportunities?
My offseason plans are to continue training with DSA performance, Topshelf_TJ, and eat proper foods to stay ready to perform.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
Some of the strengths and abilities that I will bring to a team is personality, passion, drive, and spark of energy. I am a true teammate and always motivating my brothers through the highs and lows of life and football. I’m going to push my brothers to be the best of versions of themselves so that energy can be reflected on to me.
Q: What is your final pitch to the NFL or any other pro leagues?
I’m willing to go the extra mile to get an opportunity to prove that I am worthy. I will take any route to get to the league. I will play special teams or even be practice squad player until I am deem a starting position on a 54 man roster.
