The Nakamura Diaries #3

Posted Feb 15, 2008

Former Bearcat safety Haruki Nakamura shares his thoughts as he's working towards playing in the NFL.

Anticipation of what's to come of my future grows more and more every day. It's beginning to get me a little antsy and the realization of playing days being over drives me further than ever before.

Training has picked up and my times and numbers have improved. There is no way that I'm done with football. It's in my blood, it's what I do, and it's what I love. It's one of those times when you realize
your not doing this for yourself. You’re doing it for your family at home, people that have made a difference in your life, and teammates that you've built a close bond to.

It's a step I'm trying to take to hear my mom or any of my family says one more time "I'm proud of you". There is not a single compliment better or more worth listening to than the one which is made by your family that continues to be there every step of the way. I'm very fortunate that I have a great family that has done that, and that I can continue to be a leader for people who are striving for the same
goals and aspirations.

"KONJO"- FIGHTING SPIRIT: The belief of never giving up that has brought me and my family where they are today.

Until next time,
