Kevin Tamayo Class of 2019 Linebacker Antioch 5'7 190
What does Antioch Football mean to you?
Antioch football is playing smash mouth football. It may not be pretty at times but we get the job done. We are ruthless and determined to compete. We don't stop playing and give up, we always give a hundred percent on every single play.
Favorite memory from last season?
My favorite memory from last year was when we came back to beat an undefeated lakes team 34-31 while trailing 17-3 at half. It was one of those times when we all had to pull together as a unit and win the game and overcome adversity.
You are undersized, but you are one of the hardest workers on that field-- What does that mean to you?
I am undersized by height but I kind of think my weight makes up for it. Being 190 pounds isn't bad for somebody that is 5'7. I work hard and that should matter because I face guys with a bigger frame then me and outcompete them. I am bigger on the inside than I am on the outside.
What motivates a Kevin Tamayo?
I get super motivated from people not believing in me. My frame doesn't really help my case but I make sure I get my respect that I deserve from
those who doubt me on the field. Believe me I play bigger than I actually am.
