Coakley’s Corner: Q&A with Tommy Bohanon

Guest Post AvatarJeané Coakley, SNY Jets Reporter:
Fullback Tommy Bohanon was the Jets seventh-round pick out of Wake Forest this year. The rookie has been seeing a lot of action on the field with so many injuries to the running backs. He joins me today in Coakley’s Corner.

Jeane Coakley: There’s been a lot of injuries to the running back position – do you feel you can take advantage?

Tommy Bohanon: It’s been a great competition throughout camp, and we have had a lot of different backs that have been trying to go. It’s been a good time to try and get evaluated and get a lot of reps.

Coakley: What’s it like working with Anthony Lynn?

Bohanon: He’s a great coach. He knows so much about offense, and the position, and everything… so he is really someone you can lean on and learn a lot from.

Ten questions to get to know Tommy Bohanon…

What would be your last meal?

Bohanon: Steak and potatoes.

Favorite movie?

Bohanon: The Blind Side.

If someone was going to play you in a movie who would it be?

Bohanon: I don’t know… Brad Pitt! (laughs)

Who’s your camp roommate?

Bohanon: Dalton Freeman.

Tell me something interesting about Freeman…

Bohanon: We were rivals in college. He played at Clemson, I played at Wake Forest. It’s funny now that we are teammates and we are good friends now.

Who got the best of one another?

Bohanon: Well… they beat us three times out of four, so…

If you weren’t playing football you would…

Bohanon: Be a performance trainer, something in the weight room.

How do you know John Idzik?

Bohanon: Brad, Mr. Idzik’s son, is actually one of my good friends. He played receiver at Wake and he actually was at my draft party and everything, so it was kind of funny.

Favorite color?

Bohanon: Blue

What can Jet fans expect from you this season?

Bohanon: I’m just going to go out there and play as hard as I can every snap, and try and do the best I can to help this team win games.
