Stephan Osong: 2018 Draft Prospect Interview
Name: Stephan Osong
School: Duquesne University
Q: What were some of your goals heading into your final collegiate season?
A few of my goals going into my senior year was first to win a conference championship. As a secondary unit, I wanted to be top 25 in the country overall. As well as winning and being the best team we could be, I wanted to solidify my place as one of the best Defensive Backs in the NEC.
Q: If you could describe your style of play in 3 words, what would they be?
Physical, fast, smart.
Q: How will you train and prepare this offseason for the draft or other pro opportunities?
I will train with Greg Johnston who is a very qualified trainer from the Pittsburgh area. After I graduated, I got a job at West Shore to help support myself through this process and help my family out. I understand this is a committed journey, but I believe that I will get an opportunity at the pro level, but if not, I will be successful in the business field.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on or look for?
When I am studying film or in the lab I like to call it, I’m always looking at where I would be in relation to the play and visualize myself using perfect technique making the play. I do that over and over and prepare my mind first.
Q: What separates you from the other players at your position?
I believe what separates me from other players at my position is my versatility. I can play a variety of positions and use my size and physicality to excel at that spot.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
I will play any position that the team needs me to play. I am not interested in individual success, strictly the teams success. I’ll play anything on the special teams side as well.
Q: What is your final pitch or sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?
I am a guy that will do the right things 100% of the time. That means on and off the field. I would not create any distraction because I only want the success of the organization.
