Reggie Gantt: 2020 Pro Prospect Interview
Name: Reggie Gantt
Q: What goals did you set and/or accomplish in your final collegiate season?
I set out to have a solid year and put together back to back great seasons. I also wanted to be named all conference, but fell short of that. I was an honorable mention. It only motivated me even more to prove doubters wrong.
Q: What would your coaches and teammates say about the type of player you are?
A very tenacious player, plays with energy, plays aggressive, also a team player, very unselfish.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on to improve your game?
I pay attention to my technique and focus on when did I lose my technique, and what did I do wrong within the technique. I look if I covered my zone well, if I waited too long or did I get hands on. It questionsI ask myself before, and during.
Q: What separates you from the other pro prospects at your position?
My energy, aggressiveness, and versatility. I feel as if no one can match those 3 important traits that I have. You can put me anywhere on the field and i’m going to meet or exceed those standards. I always come with energy. You can’t play this game without it. Also my ability to tackle, I hit like a linebacker and not afraid to get in the box. Blitzing is my speciality, I am great at timing the snap and getting in the backfield fast.
Q: What is your offseason plan to train and prepare for professional opportunities?
I am training four days a week with my trainer that I have known for years and had complete trust in him. I will work on making my weaknesses my strengths so that my game is complete and smooth.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
Like I said earlier, my energy and my sportsmanship. I feel like I can go in a room full of strangers and leave out with everybody knowing who I am and smiling. I bring a lot of positivity and motivation. I can brighten a room with the vibe I give off.
Q: What is your final pitch to the NFL or any other pro leagues?
All I need is one opportunity. You give me one shot. I will work harder than hard. I will give you everything that I have. I will not take anything for granted cause I know at any point this could be over. I will give you my all. I just need you to give me one opportunity.
