Randy Baker: 2020 Pro Prospect Interview
Name: Randy Baker
School: South Dakota
Q: What goals did you set and/or accomplish in your final collegiate season?
I set the goal to be the best I could be when i was on the field and i accomplished that. whatever my coaches wanted me to do i made sure i executed it. my biggest goal is to get my college degree and i’m in progress to achieving that goal right now.
Q: What would your coaches and teammates say about the type of player you are?
A guy thats funny and likes to put smiles on people face but will grind. Thats loves to be around good vibes. Will be a leader to his teammates and help them in any way he can.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on to improve your game?
When I’m studying film I break down the coverage the defense plays on the play. If I’m watching our game film I focus what I could have did better on the play. I focus on how I could have ran a better route or blocked better if it’s a run play. If i’m preparing for a game I focus on what defense coverages I see what the defense plays, and I watch the all the routes to see what works and what didn’t work. I look to what whats the most successful routes for coverages incase we install or have the route in our offense play calls.
Q: What separates you from the other pro prospects at your position?
My heart because for so long I have been getting doubted for being too small or anything someone negative could find to say about me. I’ve shown it does not matter about speed or size its about performing at a high level on the field, and doing your job. When i’m on that field I have something to prove because where I’m from nothing was ever earned or given to me. So, a pro team will get 110% out of me in everything they ask me to do.
Q: What is your offseason plan to train and prepare for professional opportunities?
My plan is to work to getting stronger and faster but also work on my feet and routes because that’s what gets a receiver paid his feet and route running, and my goal is to be one of the best route runners to play the game.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
A guy that can play offense, defense, and be a returner i’m a very versatile player I can do it all. when it comes to of the field I will bring my slogan I learned in high school to always “DO RIGHT” even when people not watching you.
Q: What is your final pitch to the NFL or any other pro leagues?
If you take a chance on me you wont regret it. Im going to bring my all to the table and grind and get better everyday. I wont settle for anything less than greatness because I want to be great at the end of the day.
