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 Ethan Graubard.

1.If you were on a game show and won 100 thousand dollars what would you do with it?

I would give money to my family if they needed it and I would put put the rest in the bank to save for my future. 

2.What is your favorite movie?

Forrest Gump

3.What is your mindset when you are on the football field?

As a safety/linebacker I am on the field thinking its time for war. It is eat or be eaten. I refuse to be eaten. That mindset allows me to be aggressive and confident which leads to me playing well against the run and pass. 

4.What is your nickname or if you made up a nickname for yourself what would it be?

I got the nickname “Big Hitta” in high school. The company that made my high school highlight tape gave me that nickname because of the way I hit. It stuck with me throughout high school and my friends still call me it to this day.

5.Who is your favorite musical artist?

Bruce Springsteen 

6.If you could hang out with a football player past or present for a day who and why?

I would hang out with Jamal Adams. I model my play after him in terms of being versatile. 

He’s able to rush off the edge, play deep third, cover the slot and tight ends. I strive to be as good of a leader as he is, I love the way he carries himself. 

7.What is your favorite dinner?

Steak, rice, and string beans.

8. What made you decide you wanted to be a football player?

I love the game. I have a vision of me playing at the highest level. I have what it takes. I am wiling to do whatever it takes to manifest my vision. 

9.Who do you model your game after?

Jamal Adams, Brian Dawkins, and Tyrann Mathieu. 

10. What would a team get in a player like you?

They are getting a versatile play maker. In today’s defenses you need guys that can play multiple positions. I can man cover as well as a corner and fill the hole and edge blitz like a LB.

I am a team first guy. I will represent the team everywhere I go. You will not have any off the field problems with me.

11. If you could live anywhere in the world where and why?

I would live in North Jersey (where I live now). I have family and friends here. It is close to New York City and close enough to the beach as well. 

12. If you were an animal which animal would you be and why?

I would be a lion because they are the king of the jungle!
