ESPN Radio's Ben and Skin interviewed Cowboys FB Lawrence Vickers about being a Dallas Cowboys. And needless to say he is excited to be part of America's team.
“I'm excited to be here for numerous reasons … I got a chance to play something I love playing. That's No. 1. Off the top I love playing football. This is my dream. This is what I said I wanted to do when I was a little bitty boy, and now I'm getting a chance to do it now. Then second of all because it means something to me, I got something behind this. Meaning, you know, my pops. Every day I wake up I look at that
and I look at where I'm at and I just think about the things that he told me and the things he wanted to see … and that's just motivation. I'm motivated.”
On his strengths and what he can do for the 'Boys.
“I understand the game. I understand blocking schemes. I understand offense. Not just what I got to do but I understand what everybody does. That allows me to play super fast. That allows me to see things, that allows me to react faster than a normal person would because they're focusing on just what they got to do but I know what everybody’s doing so I kind of already play the play ahead of time. I do that. I visualize and I attack, and when I attack I do it violently.”
