we've had some technical difficulties.
Let me tell you, uh, yesterday was just all bad.
Yesterday we had to find a new being the stream on.
And we found this.
Here we go is coming up.
Okay, here we go.
Welcome back, guys.
I have a special special guest.
Special Special Special Guest will meet for me today.
Introduce his self.
Go ahead. Go ahead, Luke.
I'm Look Sellers School, South Dakota State University.
I'm originally from Amman, Nebraska.
I play full back and ah, I just saw the lions and I'm ecstatic and ready for his new journey.
All right, let's get into it now.
Carson Wentz being drafted from North Dakota State.
First round, second overall.
How did that make you feel? I'm coming from the same conference there to give you a boost of confidence in this draft, I'd say I mean, it was really cool to see um but I believe, like, just that FCS level.
Um, we're just as good as some things.
Um and I think the thing comes down.
Dio eyes the depth.
I believe these bigger FBI schools have more debt compared toa, uh, FCS teams with limited scholarships and everything, and ah, but I definitely was really cool to see and ah, really? Ah, just, like put a fire in me like, yeah, like if I want to go, uh, keep you in Proceed my dreams, fl I mean, that's more than a possibility.
And, uh, I was really cool to see that any duckman deserved it because he's amazing player.
Remember, we played in the home, uh, Israel deal.
So Okay, how did you get here? How did Luke Sellers get here? Uh, had a funny, uh, coming into high school.
I didn't even want to play football.
It was pretty set on basketball and, you know, had dreams of the N b A.
And then, uh, right before football season started my pressure near in high school.
Uh, the body and mind said It's come on, this come out and play mean it'll be finding out too serious, and, ah, I really excelled.
Um, this is a freshman, you know, playing fullback and linebacker and, um, really time I love for the game.
And, um, as the years went up there at high school, I'm like, I want to keep going and keep playing.
And then next thing you know, I get offer from SCS.
You you know, their offense.
Use the fullback a good amount.
And, uh, because, like a lot, audiences at that time didn't really useful backs and were spread offenses and everything.
And I mean today, the fullbacks making more of a comeback, which is good to see, but ah, an S e s u I really just continue to fall in love with and perfect my craft and, ah, just the brotherhood and the teammates that all come with football.
Um, that's only chairs forever.
And, uh, you know, coming in my senior year, I'm like, uh, I really focused on just my overall technique and wanted me to do better and continue toe get better at, uh, I wanted, you know, perceived my dream and play in the NFL.
And, ah, you know, I had a good senior year.
Um, overall are it's even then And the way I wanted it, Teoh.
But, uh so then I changed this in my focus, the training went down toe college gridiron showcase in Texas.
Uh, have got a good competition down there in front of Ah, a lot of file and CFL scouts.
And then I've been training in Minneapolis for the combine and my pro day and everything.
And obviously with Kobe 19 that was canceled and everything, but I was blast unfortunate enoughto get this opportunity of the lions.
Now, how does your family feel about you play? Football is a very violent sport.
Um, athletes are faster, stronger, bigger.
How did they feel about that? I mean, the you know, moms are the very protected and get or about kids just won't protect him and everything.
Ah, but she knew I really loved it. And just competing.
Um, just her seeing me really excel in it.
Um, you know, they want me to go for it all, Uh, so definitely having him as a sport system was really great.
And, ah, I mean, they knew Ah, football.
I really fell in love with it.
And, um, they're excited for me and been here for every step of the way.
Okay, I like that because I'm an ex athlete myself.
And I did taekwondo, judo, all that at the same time.
So I know something about violent sports.
Yeah, So who is your favorite food? Back of all time, I'd say Michael start, um, for the Buccaneers.
I mean, I know full backs now, today Don't really get the balls much.
He did, um, but it's watching his highlights.
This is his honesty.
This crazy doesn't see him just dominate the game.
The position, you know, and how big he was and just how fast and strong.
Um, it's just really amazing.
And, uh, I tried on my game off him.
I mean, uh, used one of the greats.
I love my cough.
Start to play for the books, he would have that cut right here.
Name from bleeding and blocking.
Carrying the ball.
I love singing it. I love.
That is awesome.
Speaking of Mike Alstott, wish your opinions on the position on the fullback position.
Uh, I mean, throughout the years, um, Ted's ups and downs.
I think it's on its way up right now.
Um, because of the full backs.
I mean, they're kind of like Swiss army knives for offenses, especially when they're, like, able, run tight end spot or, like, be split out and they're normal backfield alignment.
Um, that makes offense very versatile And, uh, you know, really keeps the defense guessing, you know? And, Ah, I think just add a different component.
Um, And you you have more.
Ah, possibilities of what you can do is an offense and just aren't is predictable.
Now, I'm gonna ask you a question.
You can get in depth with this if you want to.
How do you break down fill of yourself and of your opponents? So for me, I'm definitely pretty tough on my stuff.
Just goes, I'm trying to get better and everything I do.
Um, but for me, I'm looking at right from the very first step.
Like my taking the right read, write, read step with it.
Uh, how's my pad level? You know how my a my finishing a play my grown by stopping, Really? Am I going all way through? Uh, so there's a big things I really focus on myself and make sure I'm always finishing.
Uh, I'm studying defense.
Since defense's I look for disk and, uh, consistent, um, things the defense is doing, you know? And like what? Uh, what what their strengths are and what they like to play to you.
Um, it's like if they're finesse player, if they're gonna come downhill, um, and what they like to dio um, but that just comes with repetition.
So I want to quit 2030 times till I can absorb it and just watch every little detail about it.
Okay, Now, question.
I did my research on you before I got on here with you.
You play fullback and you place and special teams in college.
How does he prepare you for the NFL? Because a lot of guys have to play special teams.
So you're gonna be able to play both.
How did they prepare you? Uh, yeah, I think it sets me up for success.
And to be ready.
Uh, going in nflx.
I mean, full bags.
You know, like I said, they're making, uh, more to come back in this year and this time today.
But, ah, you know, special teams.
That's where a lot of guys will find that role.
And Ah, really, uh, we'll help you make that 53 man.
So, uh, yeah, I just I did a bunch of dinner special teams in college.
That definitely helped me.
Um, just to get a feel for what I need preparing myself for and give me to work on and get better at.
And, uh, I think it really They allowed me to play about every single one when I was in college there.
So I feel pretty comfortable, but continuing just to work on myself and get better now, Darrell Bevell is your office of coordinated there with Detroit.
Um, ex officer coordinated for the Seattle Seahawks.
How do you think he would implement you in the offense there in Detroit? Uh, I've been looking, uh, to just show my versatility, whether it be at the wing set and then at the normal, um, fullback position.
Um, so I just want him, um, to know that bacon very versatile when it comes toe, um, me as a lion and, uh, just like running routes and catching balls.
And everything has been a big focus for me because SCS you that's pretty limited.
Just a blocking.
So that's one big thing I really wanna proof did end that I can be more than just your typical fullback and just, you know, down there blocking.
I want to say this to you.
I want to say congratulations.
on scoring your eight yard touchdown that you have on November 23rd 2090 which is actually my birthday.
E believe e that highlight.
And I said he was so excited he caught that ball.
You turned up to you.
According to the pie line, I say, yes, he scored his first touch.
Now have it bad feel for you.
I was honestly amazing.
Uh, cause I was on the coaches all season.
I'm like, Come on, just give me one. Giving one.
You know? Then finally, on the last regular season game.
I know my career.
We finally call it and have it when he called in the huddle.
Odds like this is that Here we go.
I guess I was honestly, just surreal.
And I wanted to pump for me to is is awesome kids.
I mean, I love, uh, make help.
My teammates get in the end zone and everything.
Uh, but just get that feeling or one that I'll remember that for a long time.
So I remember Oh, my goodness.
Scoring my first basket in college and it felt like a release.
I don't know Why? How did you feel? Like a relief.
But I know that feeling of, you know, doing for others and then being able to be rewarded.
So that's why I asked you their questions, lying to each other.
It's just you've been blocking for all your teammates.
And your teammates really appreciate you, you know, Because, like you said, the full back kind of went instinct, and then it came back.
Uh, they're able to do a lot more now, um, you know, run, blocking, pass blocking this opinion.
What kind of century in the i formation? Um, it's something else on the goal line.
You know, when you get that ball in that fourth and one, you score you like, you know you're gonna be doing anything in a fair I'm assuming because they give the ball to the up back a lot and forth the one Yeah, so I'll be looking for it today in the pre things, and I really will.
You know, more coaches a gore for it on fourth and one fork into now.
So you're gonna get a lot of opportunity there in NFL E.
All right. I want to ask you this.
What do you love most about your journey? I'd say, Ah, just the relationships of built built with the people that come across, especially one of my coaches at SCS.
You Don Johnson.
He, uh, people pull back at Oklahoma State back in his day and everything, and he really, uh, show me a way of outs.
