The Nakamura Diaries #4

Former Bearcat safety Haruki Nakamura shares his thoughts as he's working towards playing in the NFL.

With the big day closing fast, my time as a Bearcat is coming to an end. March 12th is the last day to perform at the highest level I can for the scouts hoping to impress them to take a chance to either draft me or take me as a free agent.

A shot at a dream, a dream that so many people out there feel is out of my reach because of my size, speed, or whatever else they can come up with. That fire inside that has brought me this far is beginning to fuel one more time, just to shut some mouths and open some eyes.

The raging desire to establish my name in a league that people don't believe I will last in. If I were to truly listen to some of those things, I would have given up a long time ago, but that's not me, that's not how I was brought up and that's not how I play football.

Life is too short to stop and listen to the peanut gallery. I'm a fighter ready to blow those irons gates open and to establish myself as a NFL Player. One last shot, that's all I needed in college, and that's all I need now.....

Until next time,
