What made you decide you wanted to be a football player?
Growing up seeing my brother playing football I immediately gravitated to it. While he’d be playing in high school I’d be off to the side playing my own pick up games. Watching him definitely made me want to be a football player.
What are you looking to achieve as a football player going forward?
I want to play this game I love for as long as possible because it’s been so good to my family and I. Playing at the next level it’s always been a dream of mine. Being able to provide for my family while continuing to play ball would be a blessing.
If you could hang out with any football player past or present for a day who and why?
It would have to be Randy Moss! He’s my favorite player of all time as a kid I love watching him play. Being that big and that fast was really just amazing to see. He also seems like he’s a cool dude to be around.
What are your favorite moments from your football life?
First I would have to say helping my high school team make it to the sectional championship for the first time in about 20 years. Also even though I was a redshirt being apart of the Toledo team that won the MAC championship in 2017. It was great to experience and see winning at the college level. Lastly I would have to say this past season I had a blast at New Haven, ultimately we fell short of our goal but I made some great memories and met some even better people.
Which one of your family members inspires you the most and why?
Would definitely have to say my brother. He’s been a tremendous role model in my life and always stepped up to whatever challenge has come his way. Taught me how to be a man while I was growing up and continues to school me on everyday life.
What is your favorite offensive scheme and why?
I would have to say the spread. I feel like I can play multiple different positions on the field and in that I think I could be utilized best.
What should we know about Terrell Ford the person?
Terrell Ford the person is more than just a football player. I love history and to travel, I love to study and travel to get away from the game sometimes. I feel like you have to have more to you then just football and I would say those two things describe me the most.
What stands out about your film the most?
I think my ability to be a factor in the return game sticks out right away. Being able to contribute on special teams right away is what I hang my hat on. I don’t think there are many people out there with film like mine in the return game.
How do you handle challenges both in life and on the football field?
Growing up I faced many challenges and things that made me look at life differently. With those challenges I faced I learned and I apply them to football. Life is full of ups and downs you just have to find a way.
What would a team get in a player like you?
A team picking me will get a high character guy who’s going to give it his all no matter where he is on the field. I’m coachable and willing to do whatever it is that is needed of me to win. I’m really big on character, that’s something I hang my hat on and I can definitely say I will add that to someone’s team.
What do you love the most about the game of football?
I love being able to compete there is no game like football. Also you get the chance to make bonds that will last forever. Win games with guys that you consider to be your brothers. And lastly the game of football translates perfectly to life. I feel like football has prepared me for everything that will eventually come.
Who is the most underrated player you’ve played with and why?
I would have to say Kahliq Muhammad. At Clarion he was a playmaker and was explosive as well. He could play inside and outside WR while also being electric in the return game.
