re: Kevin Minter thumps his way into the NFL (Posted on 6/26/13 at 3:12 am to hondurantiger)
Once got into trouble knocking a team mate out in practice. They say I almost broke his jaw. It was my job and I did my job well. I didn't know what doing less than 1000% was. Once we had a practice on the first day of the season but it was too wet to play on the field. We practiced on the outdoor asphalt basketball court. We ran passing routes. My turn was next and the coach threw a bad pass. I dove and caught it to everyone's surprise. I took the skin off my knees and elbows and jumped up in pain and ran back full speed and tossed the ball back to coach. Coach said hey this is practice you didn't need to do that. I said you threw the ball and my job was to catch the ball. It was that simple. There is a fine line between stubborn and determined.
