Jerraud Powers intercepts Peyton Manning #StoryTimeWithJP

By Jerraud Powers My first training camp in the NFL was tough. Two-a-day practices and a defensive coach who thought I couldn’t do anything right. Every athlete has had the one coach who saw a wrong in every right thing that they did. Larry Coyer was my defensive coordinator, and he had to be 70 years old (or older) at the time. My roommate for camp was Jacob Lacey. He was out of Oklahoma State and was a baller. In our coaches eyes, we were too cool and too relaxed for his liking. We rarely showed any emotion when it came to work but we worked hard and had a …

Iron Bowl and The Dog Bite #StoryTimeWithJP

By Jerraud Powers Nov 24, 2007. Iron bowl. The one game that you can be remembered for forever in the state of Alabama. The one game that make families separate, the game that gives you an excuse to stop whatever it is that you are doing and watch closely, praying to the football gods that your team wins.  It was my redshirt sophomore season and I was having a great year.

Injured or Not, I Have to Play in the Super Bowl! #StoryTimeWithJP

In 2009, I was drafted to the Colts in the 3rd round. I was blessed to have an awesome camp and become an opening day starter on an already-established veteran team. We went on to win 14 games in a row and clinch the #1 seed for the playoffs.

The Rookie Dinner #StoryTimeWithJP

2009, week 6. The day was set for me and another fellow rookie to take the secondary out to what is called, “The Rookie dinner.” I had heard plenty of stories from the past that were not encouraging, but I wanted to have a good time and enjoy the night. We all get to Ruth’s Chris Steak House at 7pm. They take our group to a secluded back room where expensive looking champagne and liquor bottles were set up nicely and circled the entire room. The waitress is opening a particular champagne bottle and filling glasses every other second. Another waiter is bringing food in every five minutes, well at least that’s how it seemed. The veteran players were starting to fill the room, and I noticed something wrong immediately. Most of the players brought either …
