Exclusive Q&A: Rookie RB Tim Hightower
Dusty Wittig: Who were your favorite teams and players growing up?
Tim Hightower: I was always a San Francisco 49ers fan and my favorite players were Walter Payton and Barry Sanders.
DW: What is you favorite non football activity?
TH: Creative writing
DW: When did you know you had NFL potential?
TH: It is something I have always wanted. I knew in 4th grade when I first started playing.
DW: Who was your biggest football and non football influence growing up and why?
TH: I would have to say my family in general for both of them. I can't narrow it down. A lot of things I did, I did just because I wanted to help my family to a better lifestyle.
DW: What are some of your goals for the upcoming season?
TH: I just want to contribute and help my team win. Any role they need me to play I will do it just to help my team be the best they can be.
DW: What is the biggest challenge you will face in NFL ball that you didn't have to deal with in college?
TH: I'm not sure of that yet. Probably just adjusting to the playbook and the system, and learning all of the terminology.
DW: What are some of your strengths that you can bring to the Cardinals?
TH: Just my competitiveness. I compete in everything I do, wanting to be the best individually I can and to be part of the best team. I am always wanting to win.
DW: What are some things that you need to improve to become successful in the NFL?
TH: Right now, I just have to gain knowledge of the offense to be confident in what I'm doing. Pretty much just getting in great shape and learning this playbook inside and out.
