It really shouldn’t be hard to find him. Where’s the Wanted...
Interview: Baltimore Ravens Fabian Washington
I recently got the chance to catch up with Fabian Washington, corner back of the Baltimore Ravens. In the interview, we discussed his take on the lockout, his career as an NFL athlete, and what he does when he is not playing football. I also got an insight of what Fabian Washington has in rotation on his ipod and what his pregame meal consists of. I must say, even after seeing Charlie Bell of the Warriors has in his fridge at home, I think it’s safe to say the diet on athletes isn’t exactly what you would expect.
When did you start playing football and when did you realize this would be your career?
Fabian: I started playing football at the age of 9 and always wanted to play in the NFL. I didn’t realize I had the talent to make it a career until my sophomore year in college.
How is it playing for the Ravens and do you still get nervous or rush before games?
Fabian: Playing for the Ravens was a dream come true. We won a lot of games and came close to making it to the Super Bowl in ’07. Playing with guys like Ray Lewis and Ed Reed makes all the players around them raise there level on play. Before every game I do still get nervous.
Do you have a pregame routine and explain? Certain song you listen too? Certain meal?
What is your take on the NFL being compared to “Modern day slavery? And do you feel like NFL players are slaves in a sense?
Fabian: I don’t think were slave at all because at any point in time i can walk away from the game. Slave were forced to work and couldn’t leave.
What thoughts do you have on the lockout and how is it affecting you?
Fabian: I just want the lockout to be over. I think both sides never come to an agreement that would make it fair to everybody. No winners. No losers. The lockout effects me because I am a free agent this year and free agency won’t start until the lockout ends.
Outside of football what do you enjoy doing and how has this off-season treated you?
Fabian: Outside of football im usually watching a movie or relaxing with my beautiful daughter.
Are you currently working on anything or any future projects coming up and where can your fans find you?
