George Wilson

Buffalo Bills – Safety

                      

   

What has been the toughest part about switching from offense to defense?

-It was all tough really.  I was used to running routes forward and knowing where I was going to go.  I had to switch to back-peddling and try to figure out where the offense was trying to attack us.  I had to work hard to see where I fit in and to make sure that I didn’t leave anyone hanging.  It was like learning a whole new language.  I had to learn how to plant and break.  You also have to try to anticipate and react.

 

What is your career highlight so far?

-My first career start on Monday Night Football back in 2007.  It was against the Dallas Cowboys.  The third play of the game I got an interception against Tony Romo and ran it back for a touchdown.  That was my biggest moment.

 

What is on your ipod?

-I am the music man for my team.  I have everything on my ipod.  When guys get a new ipod, they bring it to me so that I can upload it with thousands of songs.  My library has about 30,000 songs in it.  Right now the one in my ipod that I like the most is Drake.  He is from Toronto, Canada.  He is in the same label as Lil Wayne.

 

What do you like to read?

-I love to read my Bible.  I also love non-fiction books.  I like reading other people’s memories and biographies.  I like self-help books to gain other people’s perspectives on their successes and the adversity that they have had to overcome in their lives.  I try to apply these lessons to my life whenever I can.

 

What was your favorite sports team growing up?

-My favorite team growing up was the Dallas Cowboys.  That made my interception that much more special.  I grew up a big Emmitt Smith and Michael Irvin fan.  My family members were also Cowboys fans, so this was kind of a family tradition.

 

Who or what inspired you to be a football player?

-My big brother inspired me to be a football player.  I grew up watching him play.  I went to practice with him and I ran around with him.  He played in the SEC and I wanted to play there as well.  I wanted to be like my big brother.

 

If you weren’t a football player, what would you be?

-I have a Business Management degree from the University of Arkansas.  I would probably have my own business.  I also love working with youth.  I have my own foundation that helps young people.  I really believe in helping the next generation.

 

What was your favorite subject in school?

-My favorite subject was Math (outside of PE – since everyone loves PE).  Math is alright until they start adding all those letters in it, don’t you think so Matthew?

 

What does your typical day look like?

-When we have one practice a day, I wake up and have meetings from 9:30 – 11:00.  We then lift weights for an hour.  We have lunch and a break.  Then we have practice.  We then have meetings and finish up at about 9:30 at night.  We literally work 12-13 hour days around here.
