Four years ago, Wesley Woodyard’s football career was in jeopardy.

Fast forward to 2011. Woodyard has been voted a captain three times. He leads the team in special-teams stops since his rookie campaign, and has contributed more than 100 tackles on defense.

“Any time I’m on that field, I’m going to give it my all,” Woodyard said. “I love my teammates and I love the game of football. It’s not my duty to worry about when or how I get on the field. My job is to go out there and give it all I’ve got for that play or however long it is I’m in there. That’s the only thing that matters – my teammates.”

Love that type of attitude :salute:

Woody has played his way into becoming one of my favorites on the team. You have to love the attitude, the style of play, and the all out effort. Not just the effort in game, but the effort between games to improve.

Great article.
