Draft Diamonds Free Agent Interview: Emmanuel Reed, Running back
Hello, I am @jrberendzen on Twitter and this is one of my free agent interviews where I ask very deserving free agents questions about the players themselves and about what a team would get in these players. All of these players should get picked up by NFL and CFL teams and get a shot at being a career football player. So I hope you all read this interview with Emmanuel Reed. Make sure you follow him on Twitter at @emmanreed
1.If you could hang out with any football player past or present for a day who and why?
I would say Darren Sproles, he really pave the way for smaller set backs like myself to able to thrive in the league and show people that height doesn’t mean anything when your running the ball. It’s about your heart and the gifts God gave you. I would just soak up as much knowledge as I can as far as what guidelines he took that helped him transition so nicely.
