NFL Draft Diamonds Free Agent Interview: Isaiah Armstrong, Defensive 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, CFL, and XFL teams and get a shot at being a career football player. So I hope you all read this interview and follow Isaiah’s journey on Twitter @Isaiah_43
1.What is your mindset when you are on the football field?
To win every single rep,dominate that rep, and always win that rep and show I am the best player on the field.
2.What are the keys to success on the football field?
Alignment, assignment and technique. If you align yourself correctly and win your assignment and have good technique you can be successful on the football field.
3.If you could hang out with any football player past or present for a day who and why?
I would choose Ed Reed. I believe he is the best safety to ever play football and it would be beneficial to hang out and watch football with him.
4.What made you decide you wanted to be a football player?
I’ve always looked up to my older brother and I always wanted to be like him. And then one day I went out and practiced with him and I told my dad that I wanted to be in the NFL.

I hope just to get a professional contract whether it’s the CFL or NFL to prove that I can be there and be one of the best players.

8.What is a skill that you have that you think translates to the NFL well?
My size, you can’t teach size and I feel like that is the best part about me that translates to the NFL.
9.What is your biggest challenge in life?
Up to this point is just fighting to get a division one scholarship because I was just fighting to get a scholarship and then I decided to go to junior college. So fighting for a scholarship has been the toughest challenge in life so far.
10.What would a team get in a player like you?
They would get a player who would be the hardest worker in the building, smart and somebody who would give back to the community as well.
11.What is one moment in your football career that improved you as a football player?
My first practice at BYU my first year I was corner and this starting wide receiver reaches up and I was able to knock the ball out of his hands and I believe that was my biggest improvement.

I always try to bring positive energy every game that you can win the game no matter what it takes.
