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

What made me decide I wanted to be a football player is when my father Michael LoVett Jr. introduced me to the game at 5 years old. We would train and work out everyday. I did not enjoy the game of football at first from all the contact but as my father kept pushing me and working with me I began to fall in love with the game of football and never looked back since.

What sets you apart from other defensive backs?

What sets me apart from other defensive backs is that I am a ball hawk I love the ball in my hands. I have the ability to turn defensive into offense and go score. I’m fast and very physical I love to hit, strip, and take whatever to get that ball.

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

I believe that it starts with a “Go Getter” mentality first and everyone being bought in and having one goal. Being ready to battle and go to war with your brothers on that field. And live by the five P’s proper preparation prevents poor performance. With that comes discipline, determination, drive, and character.

What are your favorite moments from your football life?

My favorite moment from my football life is when I first started playing football as a kid I ran off the field and cried to my father and told him I didn’t want to play anymore and he asked me what did I want to do? Go home or get back on the field? I told him go home. He said we put in to much work for this and told me to get back on the field. The next play I had got the ball as a RB and scored a touchdown and my father was at the end of the end zone jumping up and down. Thought that taught me to never give up and keep going because you never know what your rewarded with at the end.

How are you planning to prepare for the draft?

I am training at a facility called “All En” in Houston, Texas.

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

I try to bring energy through my play and performance I’m not a loud person I let my play be loud and speak for itself along with my grind mentality.

What should we know about Michael LoVett III the person?

What you should know about me is that I am a believer first and foremost. I am a big hearted person and family oriented. I’m very driven and hard working. I’m a natural born leader and motivator. I love to see others succeed in anything that they do.

What is your favorite coverage and why?

My favorite coverage is press man. I say that because it’s me vs the man in front of me wherever he goes I go. I like to put my hand on the WR at the line or sometimes I like to just use my feet with no hands at all. I also like disguise and play with the QB head and bait him into throwing the ball to what he thought would be open.

What would a team get in a player like you?

A team would get a determined hardworking dynamic player. A player who is eager to work hard and willing to do what he has to in order to put his team in position to be great. A player who will persevere through challenges. A player who is coachable and brings positive energy to a team.

How do you handle challenges both in life and on the football field?

I’ve faced many challenges with in my life and also on the field. I think just understanding that “through every dark night there is a brighter day” meaning whatever you go through rather it’s life or on the field don’t give up because there is a brighter picture at the end of it all keep going and striving because all hard work pays off reminding your yourself that you are somebody special and having confidence within yourself.

What areas of your game are you looking to improve the most?

Areas I am looking forward to improving are watching film and breaking down my opponent more. I would also say eye discipline and getting in and out of my breaks even faster. Those areas could always improve.
