What made you decide wanted to be a football player?

It ties back to my roots in Tennessee, my uncle was big into football and I started playing in 4th grade and the first time I touched a football was in Tiptonville, Tennessee and that’s where it all at started.

What are your favorite moments from your football life?

Pop Warner league that was fun, my early college career at UCM and this past season at Tulane winning the AAC and the Cotton Bowl.

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

It would be to encourage younger kids to seek their dreams and tell kids that football it requires physical endurance and I would love to spread that message to the younger generation.

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

Randy Moss, just because I would like to pick his brain and see how he sees the world and we are both outdoorsmen so I think we could talk about a lot of stuff.

Which one of your family members inspires you the most and why?

My Grandpa, previously this past season he went to every game at 81 years old, drove to every game and he is just that pivotal role model that I look up to.

What is your favorite offensive scheme and why?

Traditional balanced offense that’s both run and pass game and because the more you run the more it opens up the pass and vice versa.

What should we know about Shae Wyatt the person?

I’m dedicated, and a hard worker. I’m willing to help others, enjoy charity, God fearing, selfless and I’m ambitious sometimes overly ambitious.

What stands out about your film the most?

That I finish plays, I’m able to get open, I can extend plays when I don’t have the ball like making a key block for the running back and I’m savvy able to run the right route and get where I need to be and I’m a good blocker.

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

I am a big analyzer. I like to take challenges with a grain of salt and I like analyzing what the next step is and go through all the options and stay calm in the moments of adversity.

What would a team get in a player like you?

Someone that’s willing to do anything for the team to win and put in the hours and be a student of the game put myself in the best position possible and if a team would draft me I would bring charisma and be a role model in the community and help my teammates.

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

The risk reward as a football player, we go through these grueling offseason workouts and there’s only 12 games and in life you also go through adversity and things will always work out and you are always trying to get better 1 percent every day.

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

Brook Bolles, he was underrated because he has a stigma of a division 2 quarterback but he was able to command an offense and take control of a game and he was overall just a great quarterback to be around.
