Nkemdiche wants to make sure he seizes the day

Robert Nkemdiche needs to come to interviews more. I’m sure Ole Miss coaches would disagree with that, but when he’s there, he’s good. He shows his personality and doesn’t say anything explosive or damaging.

He understands the NFL future before him if he stays on track and avoids injury. He also seems to have a good grasp on the present.

“This is something I expected. I foreshadowed this moment. I’m going to seize the moment because it’s special. It’s different. Not a lot of people get to experience this moment. You really want to make sure you don’t miss any small areas and don’t take the scenic route. Just walk and keep being an example. Keep doing great things on and off the field.”

That’s his pledge for the season.

It’s also to help the Ole Miss defense be consistent in all phases.

“We want to be known as one of the most physical, baddest, craziest, on-the-edge teams. Of course stopping the (run) is one of those things we want to make sure we pay attention to. Stopping the pass, special teams, whenever we’re on the field we want to make sure we’re doing our best job.”
