College Spotlight - Jedi Battlesmoke


Recommended Posts




EFLGossip.com recently sat down with Carnage LB and recently confirmed EFL Draftee, Jedi Battlesmoke. We asked him a series of questions to find out more about this young man and an edited excerpt is posted below for those that may be interested. If not, we suggest printing it out and using it for emergency toilet paper instead.


EFLG.com : Good Morning Jedi and thanks for your time today. We know it's a busy day.


JB : Sure, sure, it's no problem. You're saving me from some sprint training anyway, so I'm happy for the small break!


EFLG.com : You recently declared for the draft. Do you feel that you are ready, considering the small sample size that EFL teams have seen?


JB : Well, I'm physically and mentally ready for the jump to the pros, and frankly, I have a full season as a starting linebacker for the defending ECFA Champions, to showcase my talents. I've heard that most EFL teams don't even bother scouting until the night before the draft anyway, so I doubt they will be looking back to last season for talent evaluation.


EFLG.com : Good point there Jedi. On a related topic, do you have any preferences yet as to where you want to go?


JB : No, I am happy to leave that to the respective teams. I'm sure that if they have a need for a LB and see my name there on the draft board, they'll do the right thing for their franchise.


EFLG.com : Looking back to last season, why did you only appear in 4 games? Disciplinary issues perhaps?


JB : What are you implying? The decision was made for me to learn from the teams starters, as there was no way in hell that I was breaking into the lineup anyway. I tried to learn every aspect of the teams structures, playbooks and philosophies in order to be ready for THIS season where I think my participation will really matter. Disciplinary issues. Please man, I'm a damn saint.


EFLG.com : Apologies for the presumption. Moving on, how have you found the Athens AD and associated staff?


JB : Honestly, they have been terrific. They have shown patience and helped me to be ready for this season, and I intend to repay their faith in me by playing hard, fast and damaging for the Carnage this season. I'd never intentionally hurt a rival, but I do suggest that the opposition teams have their medical insurance premiums paid for this season. I keep splitting open the tackle bags in training, so I can't be held responsible for what might happen to a human body.


EFLG.com : Well, ummm, OK. That sounded like a threat, so we might wrap it up here. Again, thanks for your time and sincerely, all the best for the upcoming season and later on for the draft. 


JB : Absolutely my pleasure and you're more then welcome to come back after the draft for a follow-up. I appreciated the chance to chat.


*Interviewers note : We may have misconstrued Jedi's comments about hurting people as a threat. That was our mistake, as Jedi made sure to impress upon me as he walked to my car. He totally didn't intimidate me.
