Name: Ricardo Toriz
School: Briar Cliff
Q: What goals did you set and/or accomplish in your final collegiate season?
The goal that I set was to be a dominant force up the middle. I wanted to control what happened and I wanted to get attention from the Offensive line so that my backers can run free.
Q: What would your coaches and teammates say about the type of player you are?
I feel they would say that I am a strong leader on and off the field. I do not want to praise myself as if I am the best because I make mistakes, and I like to learn and grow from those mistakes.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on to improve your game?
I like to find small details on the O line to figure out ways to beat them. How they sit in their stance, their first steps how they shoot their hands. These are all questions I ask. When I watch my practice film, I look for the same thing. Just the little thing I need to work on.
Q: What separates you from the other pro prospects at your position?
I know a lot of people say this, but I can promise you that I will give you one hundred percent every time. My work ethic is something you will never have to question.
Q: What is your offseason plan to train and prepare for professional opportunities?
I just competed in the National Scouting Combine and I set a bar for myself. As I wait on my results if they are good or bad, I know that there will be always something to work on. I am always looking to grow as an athlete, so I hope to be blessed with other opportunities.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
My effort and my work ethic. These two things are the foundation of who I am. I am also not afraid to fail, because with failure comes knowledge. The more you have the more you can grow.
Q: What is your final pitch to the NFL or any other pro leagues?
All I ask for is an opportunity. That’s all I ask, I am not going to sit her and sell you anything I cannot promise, because that will be a waste of your time. If given an opportunity to compete in a pro day, or a workout. I will promise you that I will give you all one hundred percent of my effort, and prove to you that I a, worth giving a shot.
