Sean Brown FCF Football NFL Draft
Sean Brown the mauling defensive lineman of the FCF Football League recently joined NFL Draft Diamonds writer Justin Berendzen for this exclusive interview.

Hello, I am @jrberendzen on Twitter and this is an interview with DL Sean Brown (@SeanBrownD1 on Twitter) from the Fan Controlled Football League check him out. The Fan Controlled Football League is designed to give players chances to hopefully get into the NFL and I hope that you read this interview.

1.What do you think the keys to success on the football field are?

I would say the first would have to be working your craft and mastering your individual assignment every play. The next key would be to watch film on your opponent and study their tendencies to see what they like to do and look for weaknesses in their game to exploit. 

2.What are your favorite moments from your football life?

 A great feeling for me honestly was coming to the FCF and being a part of the family here with the guys. I really missed football and just being in the locker room with guys who loved the game just like I love it. My favorite memory has to be from my last game in college. It was senior night at our stadium and we played the last game at Ladd Peebles Stadium. We ended up winning the game and I couldn’t have been more proud as a senior and as a football player. The young guys stopped up and made plays for us old guys and I felt the intensity and how bad they wanted to send us out with a win. 

3.How has your experience in the Fan Controlled football league been?

 I LOVE the guys here. It’s not traditional football but I couldn’t care less. They gave me an opportunity to put on pads and do the things that I love with likeminded individuals. I’m so thankful I can because I have met lifetime friends from being here from all backgrounds and all walks of life. Im a younger guy and there are so many guys here with experience, knowledge, and wisdom. I learned more in 2 hours than I did a whole year just from talking to these guys around me. I feel like I have known these guys all my life now and I have only been here 2 months. I could go on and on about these players and staff here.

4.What has been your biggest challenge in life?

Fighting complacency. Sometimes I feel like I have gotten good at one thing and stop working it and I may regress or face someone who may be better than I have faced. 

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

Fletcher Cox. He has been my favorite D lineman for awhile and I love the way he can play inside to out and his game never drops. Also off the field I believe we have very similar interests off the field. He has a racecar and I have loved all forms of racing since I was about 5. He has a foxbody drag car and I also have a foxbody drag car that I sorta copied from him ,minus having his funds lol.

6.Rank focus,footwork and skill based on what is most important to you as a football player and explain why? 

Well I would rank it footwork, focus, and skill. With improper footwork you can be beat at the beginning of the play on defense that can equate to 6 points. With a lack of focus skill won’t matter if you bust a coverage or assignment. Also to quote this age old saying “Hard work beats talent “. 

7.What is your favorite workout? 

I love lifting heavy and doing lower body workouts. When I want a real work day I’ll hit my Olympic lifts with some heavy weight. 

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

I was about 6 or 7 and I was riding in the car with my day. We passed our middle school where the team was out practicing and I wanted to go and play like the kids at the middle school. We went right after and signed up to play pop warner football and the rest has been history.

9.What type of energy do you bring onto the football field? 

I don’t do a lot of the rara and loud yelling. I am more focused on my keys, remembering formation tendencies, and visualizing myself making plays. I would guess I bring more of a mental or cerebral energy. 

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

I love the game of football and I love how it works. You would be getting a player who wants to learn more about coverages, blocking schemes, and keys. I love to learn because it helps me on the field make decisions faster and I can just fly around and play football. I don’t have an ego and I don’t like drama so I would say I am not a locker room problem. I want to do what’s best for the team and I will every time. I don’t care about individual stats or accomplishments because they don’t mean anything in a loss. I just want to win at all costs. 11.What do you hope to achieve as a football player going forward? 

I want to acquire more knowledge to help me to get to the NFL. I want to become as knowledgeable about the game as possible. Whether I am able to use that playing in the league or coaching up players I want to know more. Whatever I learn I constantly try to give to the youth because that’s how the game keeps getting better. I want guys my age to be better than I was so they can eventually give back.

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

Every play could be my last play and the next play isn’t promised. I took so many things for granted in the past and the reality that this game doesn’t owe us anything. I have to take advantage of what I have while I have it and if that means splitting a double team for a sack I have to do it.
