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 hopefully get a chance to be picked up by NFL, CFL, USFL and XFL teams and get a shot at being a career football player. So, I hope you all read this interview here with quarterback Jake Constantine.

What is your typical training routine?

Waking up in the morning and eating three eggs. After breakfast go to the gym and lift. Later in the day I will go throw for about an hour. Once my training is over I then watch film!

What do you love the most about the game of football?

My favorite part of the game is competing with your teammates. There is nothing I enjoy more then leading a group of men into battle and them believing in me as a Quarterback to get us into the best possible situations to win a game.

What is the most important trait you have and why?

Leadership is the most important trait I have. Being able to improve people’s work ethic and mindset by setting a great example is what the game is all about. That is where I excel and the reason I have won so many championships!

What is your favorite offensive scheme and why?

My favorite scheme is the west coast. It sets the QB up for high percentage throws and is an offense where everyone gets involved. I absolutely love the art of play action pass and bootlegs from under center. Someone like me who can extend plays and make tough throws in the pocket is what makes an offense like that dangerous!

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

I use all the hard trials I have gone through in football and apply them to my everyday living habits. Who are you going to be when things aren’t easy. It’s easy to quit in life or in a game that’s not going your way. You turn the tape on you will see that I am always going 110 percent no matter what the score is. That is the mindset I carry with me when difficult situations cross my path off the field.

What are your favorite moments from your football life?

High school football is where my favorite football memories are. Playing the game you grew up loving with the people you are closest with. There is no greater feeling then winning a championship with a bunch of brothers you grew up playing in the backyard with.

What should we know about Jake Constantine the person?

I am someone who will always go out of their way to make sure people are making the most out of their opportunities. I want to see all my loved ones succeed in this world. I want people to learn from the mistakes I have made. My goal in life is to service as many athletes as I possibly can. To help them be mentally/ physically their best possible self.

What stands out about your play on the field most?

My ability to create plays when there is nothing there is what makes me special. The most important trait I have is being able to vocally lead in a huddle when the game is tight. Your teammates have to see that there is no sense of doubt or belief that you believe your team will get the job done no matter what.

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

Tom Brady. I would love to pick his brain and just talk to him about what it takes to be the best and how he handles all the hard obstacles in life and all the good ones.

What would a team get in a player like you?

Someone with a huge chip on their shoulder. A leader who is willing to do whatever it takes to win championships. I have always been overlooked since I was in high school but I have beat other QBs who have been recruited at the highest level and have beat ones who are currently playing in pro leagues. I fear nobody on that field and believe I can be one of the best to ever do it.

Who is the most underrated player you’ve played with and why?

The most under rated player I have been on the field with is Jake Bailey at Rice (currently at SMU now). His ability to create space and make tough catches is incredible. Jake is someone who could play at the highest level and was probably over looked out of high school because of his size. A true competitor that would do anything to win.

What are you looking to achieve as a football player going forward?

My only goal in life right now is to get signed and compete in a pro league. NFL,USFL,XFL, or CFL. I want to show everyone what I can do at the highest level and I will do it.
