Lawrence Vickers, was one of the last remaining blue-collar NFL fullback. With the ever-changing offenses in the NFL, guys like Vickers are in short demand. Vickers was one of those players, who laid it all on the line, every time he stepped foot on an NFL football field.
You have to wonder, how guys like Vickers learned how to play football like that. Vickers helped running backs on 3 different NFL teams, rush for more yards when he was there, than they could without his help. He was the player who was responsible, for Peyton Hillis making onto the cover of Madden.
Once Vickers was out of Cleveland, Hillis could never repeat the magic, without Vickers leading the way.
How did Vickers learn to lay it all on the line, like he did? It obviously came to him while he played his college football at the University of Colorado. Now you can have a look at what it means to be a Colorado Buffalo through the eyes of former NFL great Lawrence Vickers.
In this amazing new video, Vickers talks about what it means to have attended the University of Colorado. He takes an in-depth look at the impact being a Buffalo had in his life. You can watch the video by clicking here.
I don’t know about you, but I think the NFL prematurely, eliminated the use of the fullback. Sure the game is changing and the fans love to watch deep passing down field. But having a guy like Lawrence Vickers in your offensive backfield, couldn’t ever hurt the team.
He would lay it all on the line to protect the quarterback too. It was always a pleasure watching Vickers play the game.
