Name: Terrell Myers
School: Lawrence University
What goals did you set and/or accomplish in your final collegiate season?
I am a firm believer with team success comes individual success. All-American, All-Region, and All-Conference were the goals I set. Although I didn’t reach all my goals, I did accomplish All-Conference at DB and Return Specialist.
Q: How do you think you took advantage of the extra year of eligibility to increase your chances of going pro?
The extra year of eligibility helped me grow both mentally and physically. I was voted by my team as team captain. Another year afforded me the opportunity to train and lift longer and harder while soaking up additional coaching and achievement from my coaches to continue being a greater student of the game.
Q: What would your coaches and teammates say about the type of player you are?
My coaches and teammates would say I am a silent worker and humble leader on and off the field which is demonstrated through my actions and accountability. Previously and as team captain I always lead by example and through demonstration. I would never ask or tell my teammates to do anything I wouldn’t do.
Q: When you are studying film, what are the things you focus on to improve your game?
When studying film, I watch for techniques/tendencies from past weeks I am giving away. And I think like a WR and look for my potential weak spots for my preparation going into the next game to have counters in my toolbox for my development as the season progress. Also, I look for tendencies of the QB and WR such as stance changes, how they release, what they do when they are about to get the ball as to when they are not, how they block, and so on for the opposing I am facing that week.
Q: What separates you from the other pro prospects at your position?
What separates me from the other pro prospects is my grind. I am forever a student of the game. In additional to my coaches pushing me I push myself daily never missing an opportunity to be a better athlete. I am passionate, teachable, and a flexible player. As a lover and student of the game I can play my position as well as when asked to play another position and excel.
Q: What is your offseason plan to train and prepare for professional opportunities?
My offseason plan to train and prepare for professional opportunities include continuing to put on weight while also getting faster, and stronger.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
The strengths and abilities I will bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field is my quick ability to learn new things, my adaptability in any environment, leadership skills and teamwork abilities, maturity, focus, drive, determination, and professionalism. My performance on and off the field, I will represent not where I am but where I am trying to go which is the pros. I will keep in mind when I put on that jersey, I am not only representing myself now but my family, my coaches, my teammates, and everyone with their hand on the organization.
Q: What is your final pitch to the NFL and any other pro leagues?
My final pitch to the NFL is pick me I will be grateful for the opportunity and will not let you down. I will representative my team and the organization well. I am ready to put in work and give my very best to my team. I am prepared to show up, learn, and train. Playing professionally has always been a dream of mine and I wholeheartedly believe I can play on that level if given an opportunity. All I need is that one Yes! Even though the D3 route is the path least traveled, I wouldn’t change a thing because this route has opened many doors of opportunity and has helped shaped me into the student, player, and athlete I am today.
