Name: Luis Rolón
Q: What goals did you set and/or accomplish in your final collegiate season?
A goal I accomplished was to become a playmaker. There were times in a few keys games when I made big stops. Another goal was to become more coachable and be willing to learn the bigger picture of the game rather than just my position.
Q: What would your coaches and teammates say about the type of player you are?
I’m a very team first guy. I’m willing to do whatever helps the team. Another thing is I will also step up to lead. I’m not afraid to speak my mind. Also I take young guys under my wing and show them the ropes. Given that this was my last season I especially wanted to make sure I was leaving the program better than it was before.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on to improve your game?
I watch to make sure I’m doing the proper things like technique, pad level, alignment. I watch to make sure I’m doing the right things in order for me to be successful on the field.
Q: What separates you from the other pro prospects at your position?
What separates me from other prospects is the willingness to learn and get better. I’m always down to get coached up and make myself better. Whether that’s in the film room, on the field, or wherever.
Q: What is your offseason plan to train and prepare for professional opportunities?
I am hitting it hard everyday trying to get faster and stronger. I got invited to ANC combines and I’m going to the ones in LA, St. Louis, and Baltimore so I’m working hard to put up the best numbers possible.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
Strengths on the field I bring to the table are my ability to stop the run, be a leader to rely on, and give my all everyday in everything. Strength off the field is my involvement in community that’s always been a huge thing of mine to help out around my hometown so I will continue that anywhere my future takes me.
Q: What is your final pitch to the NFL or any other pro leagues?
My final pitch to teams is that I’m ready to get to work. I’ve been grinding my whole life to make this dream of playing at the next level come true. To get an opportunity to play is nothing I’m going to take lightly. You’ll be getting not only a great player, but a great leader, teammate, and role model for kids that seek this dream too.
