  1. Morgan Pioveson was announced to have signed an extension with Seattle last week, and discussed the news with the local media. "Seattle has been a really cool city and I'm happy to be staying on. We're trying to build something special here, and I buy into the Predator's philosophy and vision whole-heartedly. Ending up here has worked out pretty well I'd say. It was very easy to agree to an extension, barely had to be discussed even; that's how you know you're on the same page with your management. It's a fair sort of prove it deal, which I'm fine with, I know I haven't really made a name for myself the way I wanted to. I'm a very under the radar type of player, don't get noticed much, but that's alright, I've carved out a little role here and I feel like they appreciate what I contribute even if it's not on a cosmic scale. I can just work in a low key environment to improve my skills and try to help win some games on the turf. I think before my tenure in Seattle is done we can win a title, it's just down to some hard work now and to some strategic planning and additions," said Morgan Pioveson.

  3. Morgan Pioveson seemed energized at the prospect of his second season in the league and discussed his offseason activities. “I feel rejuvenated after a refreshing and relaxing offseason, it was very good couple of weeks off for me. I did a bit of traveling, of course not slacking on my training, and now I’m ready to play some football again. The rookie season was a learning experience for me but now I’m becoming something of a veteran, if two years can be called that. I’m going for lots of tackles, my strength is unparalleled by most players in the league, and I feel like my athleticism is at a personal best. I mean speed is great for every position and that’s something I’ve learned and worked very hard to improve. Seattle is going to have a solid defense this season if I have anything to say about it; defense wins championships and that’s what I want. People will underestimate us, but all that matters is that we believe in ourselves, that we work hard on and off the field all year, and that we play some smart football and build chemistry together. We have what it takes to be a top tier team and I think people will see that this year,” said Morgan Pioveson.
  4. Morgan Pioveson emphasized the importance of a healthy diet for any athlete; he has been known to eat a low-carb, high protein diet. "I think what you eat is a very important thing for any football player, or any athlete in any sport, to consider, because you really are what you eat. That's one of the things that scouts look at, because it's a way you show dedication and discipline to make sure you're sticking to a healthy diet. I think that we're learning now that carbs are pretty bad for you and make you put on the wrong kind of weight, but protein helps me pack on muscle and stay fit. Doing what I do, I'm always ready to play, to train, or to work out, and it also hopefully sets a good example for any fans who might start looking up to me. I wasn't always this much of a health nut, and I wish someone had been around to push me in that direction when I was younger. You just feel so much better when you're taking care of yourself. If I can inspire anyone to eat healthy and get serious about what shape they're in, that's my goal," said Pioveson.

  6. Morgan Pioveson has been spotted working out at the gym multiple times over the course of the past week, and he had this to say about his regimented training routine. “I have been working very hard to get my speed up with some cardio workouts, because really in the EFL, speed kills. It’s the most important attribute in today’s football game, so I need to be faster. I saw on the roster that my assessed speed rating is up to 80, so it’s clear I’m starting to get results and the hard work is paying off. Then of course, as a defensive player I need some crazy strength, so I’m lifting and doing core exercises. There are some big guys I’m up against, so I need to be able to tackle even the most sizeable guys in the league. Hopefully my coaches and the fans pick up on how hard I’m working, I want to make a good impression and perform on the pitch. Getting to a top level of athleticism and strength is the perfect goal for this point in my career, and it’s really about elevating my game beyond the point it was in in the NCAA,” said Morgan Pioveson.
  7. Morgan Pioveson's rookie experience has been quite trying and chaotic at times. As a third round draft pick, he initially felt overlooked, and expectations certainly weren't high for a guy picked so late. Pioveson was then sent to the Seattle Predators per his request and has been seeking to win, but the season hasn't fulfilled all of his hopes. The Predators are thankfully hanging on to second place in their division right now which is quite the relief to him, but the close playoff race is stressful and nerve-wracking. For a rookie player inexperienced with the league and dealing with trials though, Pioveson has not let it affect him on the turf though. Through 9 games, he's made 38 tackles, keeping up with the insanely fast and strong offensive players running for touchdowns. The athleticism, talent, and strength of the veteran players is impressive to say the least, perhaps intimidating. Pioveson knew going into the league how high the skill level was, but it was impossible for his mind to truly register just how high it was until he was squaring off against them and trying to tackle them. He has had to work hard and taking his training up to the next level in order to compete, and he knows now that he has a long way to go to become a great defensive player for his team. What's left is to see how the season goes and to try not to succumb to the pressure if Seattle makes the playoffs. Pioveson wants to experience the EFL postseason firsthand, feel the surge of energy from the roar of the crowd and the goosebumps from the intensity of the big game. He hasn't seen it yet, but he can imagine in his head as if he was already there. Just the talk from reporters in post-game press conferences is enough to spike his heart rate from excitement, to make him wonder if the Predators have a chance at a title. The odds would be difficult, but after all the challenges Pioveson has faced early on in his career, he is not backing down from anything and not scared to take on any team that Seattle would have to face. All in all, his EFL rookie season has been a great opportunity for growth and self-discovery, and this is a rookie that is on the rise.
