Name: Wesley Rubiera
Q: What goals did you set and/or accomplish in your final collegiate season?
The Goals that I set for my senior season was to go out and have fun with it and make the most of my teammates while also playing to the best of my ability, I did make this happen and it was a much better season with my teammates than I had ever had.
Q: What would your coaches and teammates say about the type of player you are?
The Players and Coaches would say that I work hard and I am very critical as to how I practice and that I take things too seriously sometimes when it comes to the performance of my offensive line, long snapper, and holder in order to help me succeed when making the kick.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on to improve your game?
When I study film I look at the other team first and try to find their strengths and their weakness, because this helps me improve my game when I need to kick. I also look at everything with myself as well, my walk out onto the field if possible, my alignment, myself taking my steps back are they the same every time and my posture. A big thing I look at is what I do after I kick whether I make or miss the kick I am always trying to improve my mindset so that I can control everything that I can control on the field.
Q: What separates you from the other pro prospects at your position?
To be honest I have no clue what sets me apart to from the rest of the players and athletes. I do know that everything I do as a kicker is to make everything game like, and that no matter if I make the kick I will never like it because I know that it can always be better. Nobody is perfect and neither am I, but I want to be. I think that is what sets me apart is that I don’t care who is better than me I will compete and show the world who I am and take the other athletes for everything they have.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
A big thing for me is honesty on and off the field as well as doing what you are supposed to be doing behind closed doors, because you never know who is watching. I will always be honest with everyone I cannot lie, and that because I had a strong up bringing by parents who are the greatest in the world and made me want to always look for more in this sport by being humble.
Q: What is your final pitch to the NFL/CFL or any other pro leagues?
It is that no matter what you say or think of me I will prove you wrong. I started playing football my senior year of high school and my teammates told me there is no way you can make it to college, because of starting to play so late. In college there were people who said you are to small to play pro nobody will look at you and no one will be satisfied, but I am determined to prove them wrong and I ambitious to make any sacrifices I have to in order to make my pro career happen.
