Draft Diamonds Free Agent Interview: Ross Robertson III, 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 here. Make sure you follow Ross Robertson III’s journey, check him out on Twitter, @rae3rd

Legs- anything that has to do with lower body.
5.What are your favorite moments from your football life?
Every practice I’ve attended – every game – every workout- most importantly the moments my daughter attends workouts with me and sits and watches while she screams ( GO DADDY!! YAY!) that makes all of this worth it.

Clothes, my Bible, and a magnifying glass or a mirror to start a fire, feel warm, and be able to cook.

Barry Sanders. Why? To be able to pick his brain a little bit and get any advice as a running back that I could from him to help improve my game.
8.What made you decide to be a football player?
Honestly? At first it was what it took to be one. Meaning the “process of becoming a football player”, then when I realized what it could do for not only my family but the impact I can have and will have on others in a positive way that’s what kept me going. I love the challenge it comes with.
9.What do you do for fun?
I’ve been a musician since I was 3 years old, so I love to play the piano when I’m not doing anything else.
10.What would a team get in a player like you?
Consistency, effort and A team leader.

Being a father.
12.If your life was a tv show what would you call it and why?
God’s way – why? Because that’s how I would start the story of my life.
