Moses Washington Speaks About His Opportunity of a Lifetime

I interviewed Moses Washington, a contestant on Spike TV's upcoming new show "4th and Long" with Michael Irvin. 

This defensive back always dreamed of playing football since he first played at 8-years-old and this was his opportunity of a lifetime

After speaking with Washington, I can't wait to watch his journey through the show which premieres on May 18th.

What makes you different from every other defensive back? What are your strengths?

What makes me different then all the other defensive back is I feel I have natural raw talent. A lot of the guys on the show just played football. I double sported in college and ended my college career running track. So I never got a opportunity to reach my full potential in football. I felt they have. Being that they played all there years in college.
Do you think your age is a factor? Do you think it hinders you or helps you?

Only thing that hinders me Is what I believe that I cant do. The Other factors what people say I can't control.
What did you learn from your time on the show?

What I learn about the show is that obstacles are fighting things you see when you take your eyes off your vision. There was so many things they tried to do to make you believe that you couldn't do to finish the competition. But understanding that, I found that my true strength resides in my mind .

What are your goals for the future?

To use this experience to inspire others and to serve the needs of people and my community.

Any advice for guys who dream of having the chance you were recently given?

Yea… There is no use trying to use your situation as an excuse not to try new things. The saddest summary of life is sum up in three phrases… Would have could have but didn’t… If you try you never fail. You just found another way that doesn’t work.

    It's pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.
