Video Interview: Desmond Stapleton

Desmond Stapleton, the brother of former Rutgers center and current Pittsburgh Steeler Darnell Stapleton, enters his redshirt freshman year on the Banks of the Old Raritan. After one year of learning the Rutgers system and getting acclimated to the collegiate lifestyle looks to continue the family OL tradition at Rutgers.

When OL Desmond Stapleton had committed and eventually signed with Rutgers, he had displayed talent but still had to re-define his body and gain important experience in the trenches. With one year in the Rutgers system, Stapleton has done a great job in preparing himself to become a part of the mix on the Rutgers Offensive Line, shedding a significant amount of weight and re-sculpting his body into a nearly unrecognizable form.

In this media day interview, Stapleton discussed his progression in the weight training program over the last season, his thoughts on the offensive line and coaching staff, and his visions for this program's success in the future.
