Luke gifford breaks down ways to make money legally how he wound up a dallas cowboy hail varsity

LG: it was a pretty crazy day on saturday. Saturday morning before the draft I had quite a few ways to make money legally teams calling me and telling me what their plan was. A lot of them said late round to be ready ways to make money legally and if not, free agency. I had been talking to quite a few teams and ways to make money legally then throughout the day, around the fifth, sixth round, my phone started lighting up.

It’s different because the linebacker coaches are texting me the ways to make money legally whole time and telling you how much they want to ways to make money legally have you there and they’re trying to get your drafted but it’s kind of all over the place. You just never know what will happen. It was stressful and I was disappointed I didn’t get drafted, but I was really happy I ended up in dallas ways to make money legally and I’m excited for what’s to come there. HV: was dallas one of those teams you thought you might ways to make money legally go to?

LG: yeah, they were. I had been talking to them for the last couple ways to make money legally weeks and they had told me they probably weren’t going to draft a linebacker so I knew if ways to make money legally I did go there it would probably be in free ways to make money legally agency. So I was kind of just waiting and trying to ways to make money legally figure out what was going to happen, but I knew that if I didn’t get drafted, dallas was where I wanted to end up. There’s definitely good things about getting drafted, but there are also good things about free agency.

You can’t come to a deal during the draft but we ways to make money legally kind of knew what we wanted to do from there ways to make money legally on out if we didn’t get drafted. There were a lot of teams right after the draft ways to make money legally and in the sixth, seventh rounds that were calling me trying to get stuff ways to make money legally set up, but we kind of had our minds made up on ways to make money legally what we wanted to do. It was too hard to pass up. HV: how did you manage the stress?

LG: it was really stressful. I actually had a bunch of people over at our ways to make money legally lake house in ashland. My family was there, the foster family was there and then we had a ways to make money legally bunch of friends so we were watching it and I ways to make money legally kept getting calls and I had to leave every two ways to make money legally minutes and finally for the last two rounds I just ways to make money legally went and sat in the bedroom and watched it on ways to make money legally the tv and talked to my agent the whole time. I couldn’t take it anymore, I couldn’t keep going back and forth, so it was hard. You sit there and you watch guys get taken that ways to make money legally you scratch your head about, but it is what it is. I’m glad the way it ended up. It was fun overall, but it was definitely stressful. HV: how did dallas sell itself to you?

LG: I talked to them mainly before the draft. Just told them thank you. Coach chins reached out to me. I talked to coach dewitt. Those guys have been a huge help in the process. Coach ruud reached out to me before the draft, just offering some insight on some teams and where would ways to make money legally be some good places to go. They were huge in that part and I’m just so thankful for them and the time I ways to make money legally got to spend with them in the last year. HV: how did you spend your time with jerald foster?

LG: it was really nice having each other around. He was actually playing dominos the whole day. I couldn’t take it, I was pacing back and forth talking on the phone ways to make money legally the whole day but he was pretty nonchalant. It’s really nice to have him around and then to ways to make money legally have that experience together. Growing up and going to high school together and playing ways to make money legally college football together and then getting to go to the ways to make money legally next level at the same time, it’s pretty unique and it’s not something best friends get to do very often. We tried to soak it up. We were pretty excited for each other when we made ways to make money legally it official. It’s been a really fun process and the last few ways to make money legally years have been great so we’re looking forward to new teams and being in the ways to make money legally same division. I’m excited to be lined up across from him for ways to make money legally once. HV: what’s your timeline look like now?

LG: I leave for dallas and rookie minicamp next thursday. So we’ll have rookie minicamp next weekend and then from there ways to make money legally we’ll go to otas and all that. I’m not exactly sure how they do their otas — some teams spread the practices out a little bit — but I’m sure I’ll be there for quite a while and then hopefully ways to make money legally get a little break or a week or two before ways to make money legally camp starts in july. HV: in what ways did coach dewitt, coach duval and coach ruud help you this senior season?

And coach dewitt was also really big because I didn’t get the time in spring ball to work out ways to make money legally some of those kinks and reps, so I spent a lot of time with him and ways to make money legally going over stuff. He’s just someone who’s so smart, he can teach it in lots of different ways. It was really helpful for me. I had been around for so long that I even ways to make money legally remember some of coach bo [pelini]’s stuff and coach dewitt was even familiar with some ways to make money legally of that from carl pelini down at FAU. He would put it into terms that I understood so ways to make money legally that helped a lot. I’m really grateful for him.

[coach dewitt] was pretty familiar with the defense that we had ran ways to make money legally and been in so a lot of times he would ways to make money legally think of the verbiage or the vocabulary that coach bo ways to make money legally would have said it, the way coach bo would have said it or taught ways to make money legally it, that’s just how smart he is. And I didn’t remember everything — obviously, that was a tough defense and I was young — but there was a lot that I could remember, and he was really helpful in that way. He broke it down so I understood it well and ways to make money legally it was easy to take and carry over to the ways to make money legally field. HV: you had a chip on your shoulder going into the ways to make money legally draft, do you have that same chip now because you were ways to make money legally undrafted?
