11/‎26/‎20 Online interview with Eric Nephew- Cincinnati Landmark Christian

My thoughts on this young man.
I have watched this young man play twice and he has that rare gift of seeing things before they happen. Some will look at his size and automatically look past him. I have watched enough football to know this kid can play at the next level. I am willing to bet if A D-3 college coach looks at his film and gets in touch with Landmark Head Coach Goodpaster, that college coach will walk away with A good stout player. Eric is a Junior and will graduate after next season. I sent him 10 questions to answer.

  1. What is the best part about playing for Landmark Christian? The best part about playing for Landmark Christian would be the brother-ship and the trust that you build between the players and the coaches as well. I know that if I ever needed absolutely anything, I could go to and count on anyone in the organization.

 

  1. What is the hardest part about playing for Landmark Christian? One of the challenges of playing for Landmark Christian is that it is a smaller organization. Not that there is anything wrong with that, it just at times can limit the opportunity we have to be able to access quality facilities and getting recognition. The hardest thing for sure about playing for Landmark Christian is holding myself to the standards that Coach Goodpaster sets for me. I love and respect my coach, and he recognizes and sees the potential ability we have. He holds us to a certain standard and expects us to live by that. Even though at times he can be tough on us, I know it is because he cares and sees our true capability. !

 

  1. I have watched you play twice and both times what stuck out to me is your field vision. You always seem to run with your head up looking for your next move a lot like a chess player. So who do you pattern yourself after, if anyone? While I never have really compared myself to anyone I think my play style is similar to a lot of the smaller backs like Giovani Bernard. When I improve my pass blocking I think he will be the player that I resemble. “

 

  1. I have been told by your coach that you are very strong in the weight room. What are your best numbers on the bench and squat? My best weight for benching is 230 and my best weight for squatting is 315. I always make sure I have strict form.

 

  1. In a perfect world, what position would you play? In a perfect, I would definitely choose to play scatback. My quickness, route running, and reliable hands are an advantage for me in the open field.

 

  1. 4th and goal from the three and your number is called. What play are you hoping to run? I would like to have an inside zone run called. My vision and agility help me to get hard-earned yards despite my size.

 

 

  1. Do you plan on playing college ball? If the opportunity presents itself and I am blessed enough to be able to do so, I definitely will.

 

  1. What will you major in? I am still unsure of what path I would like to pursue in school.

 

  1. Which school do you like beating the best? The school that I like beating best is Middletown Christian, even though it does not happen that often. We have built a rivalry with them over the years, so beating them always feels good. !

 

  1. Do you play other sports? If so, what all do you play? No, I do not. However, I have always enjoyed lifting and being in the gym.!
