Luke Bialozynski | The Spring League | WR
Q: What would you consider to be your biggest accomplishment in your sports career so far?
A: Participating in The Spring League alongside NFL training camp and top D1 school athletes and realizing they are not that different from myself.
Q: What do you consider to be one of the more important things you learned from the coaching staff while playing at The Spring League.
A: I think I learned how valuable one on one time is with coaches and that you should always take advantage of that time and learn everything you can. Learning an NFL style offense in two days fueled my confidence. Networking isn’t a bad idea either, right!
Q: How was your career impacted due to the 2020 pandemic and what have you learned from the adversity?
A: 2020 was all about patience for me and that is easier said than done (I like to go go go). I treated 2020 as a year to work on all the little things I have often ignored. Knowing that, I think I did a good job of improving my lower posterior chain and correcting body imbalances along with putting in endless hours of training with multiple trainers.
Q: What are your plans if football doesn’t work out?
A: Currently, I am an accounting software Account Manager with a great company where I have learned how important planning, communication and dedication is. I have realized at a younger age how important is it to surround yourself with people that share your values while also learning from them every day. Once people see that you care, they will want to help you. More simply put, put God first and everything else will follow.
Q: What would your past teammates say about you and your qualities?
A: Fast, shifty wide receiver with excellent hands, eyes always follow ball, does not give away routes with body language or pre snap line up placement. Instinctive and overall better athlete after initial contact/tackle (this seems to increase his focus from mental stand point).
Q: What has been one of the most memorable plays of your career at any level?
A: In high school, my Sophomore year, I scored four touchdowns in the first half of the game, all off post corner and post routes (I love playing the mental chess game with cornerbacks).
Q: What has been your biggest challenge and how do you manage it?
A: To answer this question from a high level, I would say not having my priorities and value in line my later years in high school. This ultimately cost me my chance at playing for a big college football program.
Q: If you could compare yourself to a pro athlete, who would that be and why?
A: I run routes and run after catch like Austin Collie but catch and attack ball at high point like Larry Fitzgerald. Watching NFL receivers wait for the ball to come to them or catching it with their body drives me crazy, literally.
Q: What is your biggest strength that you bring to a professional team and why should pro scouts consider you?
A: I believe my biggest strength is my hands. I never understood how any player could drop a ball in a game when the adrenaline is pumping. When the ball is in the air life slows down for me. I am a true wide receiver, not an athlete who runs a 4.4 that you need to teach how to catch/run routes etc.
Q: Are you involved in mentoring, a charity or do you “give back” or ”pay it forward” in your community?
A: I support Tim Tebow’s Night to Shine which is a Prom for people with special needs. On this night, you can have the honor of being a person’s buddy for the night and make memories that last a lifetime. I also have a bank account named God where I specifically put fund aside to give to others. There is no money on this planet earth that is permanently ours and I have never seen a U-Hual behind a hearse so I plan to do some good with the money I have while I am here.
Q: How are you preparing for the 2021 National Scouting Combine and what are your goals?
A: I feel this is a loaded question for me. To me the better question is what I am not doing to prepare? Example: My fiancé and I have agreed that I cannot do anything football related (watch film, game, prep workout, prep supplements, make dry needling/massage appointments, read inspirational football books, contact trainer) after 8pm because I get too amped and won’t be able to fall asleep that night. I’ll have two thoughts: “I could have done better today, why didn’t I” or “what can I do tonight to become a better football player.” Keep in mind, this is after a full day of anabolic workouts followed by plyometrics/routes, followed by recovery methods, followed by film and nutrition and inspirational books, documentaries.
Q: What would be your ultimate achievement?
A: There is absolutely no way I will make it the XFL or NFL without God. I want people to see that, then follow Him and go after their dreams WITH him. Your dream will have a very different meaning than it originally did if you let God guide you. It won’t be about your glory but His. There is nothing like God’s love, I want people to have that gift and experience the light.
Q: What do you enjoy doing when not playing football?
A: I enjoy anything that is competitive where I am on a team like pick up basketball, trivia etc. I also like reading Christian books and enjoy slowing life down and realizing how great I have it. This helps remind me who is in control.
Q: If you could make a positive impact on all of society what would it be and why?
A: There is a God who loves you. He cares for you more than you can ever comprehend… His door is always open and he wants to give you everlasting life. Because he is great Father He has told us what to do and what not to do (sound familiar parents that love your kids?) because he knows what best for you. He is not the “Christian” you know that pretends to be perfect. He is not the Church that turned you away…that is us and as Christians we need to be better!
Q: Who is or has been the most influential person in your life?
A: My Dad, Tim Tebow and my beautiful fiancé Erin. I was always amazed at how calm my Dad could stay in every situation life threw him. Now I know that is because he knows who is really in control. Tim Tebow, a great athlete but even better human, showed me there is nothing embarrassing about praising God, it doesn’t make you weak or soft. It actually makes you stronger (plot twist!).
Q: What is something unique about you that people would find interesting?
A: Man, I ball my eyes out every time I watch Rudy, Greater, Invincible, Unbroken 2. I also tracked down Mr. Gutekunst, Green Bay Packers General Manager at last year’s NFL combine in Indianapolis to introduce myself and ask him about advice for obtaining a rookie mini camp invitation.
Q: What is your dream job?
A: Being a great Father and Football Coach – Offensive Coordinator. I want to work with the “underdogs” and have an impact on athletes like my earlier HS coaches, Kris Walters, Jim Lewein, Greg Calhoun and Kurt Morris had on me.
