FOOTBALL IS BACK BABY! Well almost back. In just over seven weeks, the NFL kicks off its 100th season with a matchup between the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers. These next seven weeks can’t go by fast enough. However, training camp officially kicks off today for the Denver Broncos with all the other teams to start within the next or so. In the meantime, the Scorecrow family has started a mini-series with a handful of writers giving you their opinions on NFL questions; five at a time.

Welcome to the first NFL Player Interview that I’ve conducted. I spoke with Lukas Denis, rookie safety for the Buccaneers out of Boston College, about his experiences at Boston College and who has impacted his career the most so far.

With the 2019 NFL Draft now behind us, teams are now beginning to take shape and mold into what we will most likely see for the upcoming 2019-20 season.
