Ronald Teague III kicked off his senior year of Olympia High football with three interceptions - including one returned for a touchdown - during the team’s preseason game against Lake Nona on Aug. 18. And after a victory against West Orange the following week, Teague said this season should be a good one for the Titans.
Of all the different positions you’ve played over the years, is linebacker your favorite?
Yeah, because you have to do everything, from covering someone to tackling someone to running someone down. This is the perfect position for me.
What is your favorite part of the game?
Definitely hitting someone.
How do you feel after you’ve made an epic tackle?
I feel unstoppable, like nobody can touch me, nobody can stop me.
How long have you been playing football?
Since third grade. I would get into trouble at school - like class clown - so football was my way of letting things out.
How do you feel your team is doing so far this season?
With everything we’ve been preparing for, it’s going to be a good season. Things are working.
Do you have any hopes for your team this year?
It’s a strong possibility that we will be in states this year.
What is one thing you feel you need to work on?
I need to work on watching game film as a player and not as a fan.
What college do you hope to attend?
Any school is good if I can get to play football, but my school is Florida State University.
What would you want to study in college?
Business. I eventually want to go to tech school and learn to be a barber. I want to open a chain of barber shops, so I want to study business so I know the business side of it.
What do you like to do for fun?
I like to relax. Me and my friends will go to the lake and chill or go to a friend’s house.
If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
Super strength. I always want to be the strongest.
