“The Driving Force Of Our Football Team”April 30th, 2010
If you’re a glass half-empty kind of guy, you might have listened to Raheem The Dream talk to Steve Duemig, of WDAE-AM, yesterday and been blown away by his comments about former practice squad running back Kareem Huggins.
If you’re an optimist, you would have walked away impressed that an NFL team could have been led consistently by a rookie who has barely sniffed the field.
Kareem Huggins, no doubt about it, he was absolutely the driving force of our football team in practice. Every day he touched the football he made our defense work harder …no matter what the call was, what the duty was, he was able to do it. And the old saying goes, ‘You’re driven from the bottom up.’
Joe never played in the NFL, so Joe can’t really speak to what makes winning leadership in the locker room and on the practice field.
Joe’s always been a fan of Huggins. Joe even interviewed his college coach last year and wrote a feature on him for a New Jersey newspaper. But Joe is stunned to learn just how big a role Huggins played on the 2009 Bucs.
What it all means for this team, Joe will leave that up to his readers.
