What made you decide wanted to be a football player?

I decided playing football after a friend of mine asked if I was interested in wanting to become a kicker and being a soccer player for my whole life I was interested in playing a new sport and kicking always looked like fun.

What are your favorite moments from your football life?

My favorite moments from football life have been winning the celebration bowl for the first time in school history and being able to break the all-time leading school record for first time in 15 years as well as extra point record and tying the field goal record.

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

I am looking forward to impacting the young Latino community and influencing kids that no matter where you are you can achieve anything in life. Being the best in my position and competing with the best. 

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

I would hang out with Justin Tucker because I would like to have a conversation about what has made him who he is as one of the most consistent kickers in the NFL History. 

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

My father inspires me the most because he has came at the age of 18 to accomplish the American Dream and find a way to provide for his family and he has been able to show me the way of being disciplined and well mannered and has shown day in and day out that no matter what is going on always be positive. 

What is your typical training routine?

My typical training routine is go in and have a small breakfast and go in and have a weight training session in the morning and towards later in the afternoon I have a kicking session with my kicking coach depending on the day of what body parts are being worked in the morning. 

What should we know about Adrian Olivo the person?

A very humbled athlete who is willing to work hard day in and day out and be consistent in the small details to perfect my craft as a person who is willing to help anyone who is going through trouble and be able to be a better person each and every day.  

What stands out about your film the most?

What stands out about my film is the consistency you see on every kick and the dedication to better and how I am a team player where I will congratulate everyone around me for doing their job and that is why I take pride in what I do. 

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

I manage handling challenges on and off the field by staying positive and maintaining my calm and peace by trusting the process and believing in God because he is the one who has the plan and guidance of helping me achieve many opportunities ahead. 

What would a team get in a player like you?

A team would get a player who is dedicated and always wanting to compete to be better than what he was before and live in the moment and stay calm and be a team player and motivate everyone around. I will be someone who is reliable and can count on throughout any situation if that is on the field or off the field and in the community. 

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

What I love the most about the game of football is the friendship and brotherhood and the opportunities of building and opening many doors for things outside of football. The environment of having the trust and building a relationship with the people inside that building is what gives me the love of football stronger. 

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

The most underrated player I’ve played with have been many players while I have been at North Carolina Central but one who is an underrated player is Latrell Mookie Collier someone who comes in and works their butt off and never hesitates to take a step and work hard no matter what his situation is he will come with positive energy and is the best running back I’ve seen who isn’t afraid of making the contact with anyone and has proven why he has the potential to being a top running back in the league.
