Los Angeles Wildcats punter Colton Schmidt delivers

1. 2020 will bring me ...

General well-being and happiness, followed with establishing myself in this league as the best punter.

2. What does "The Wildcat Way" mean to you?

To me, "The Wildcat Way" is what we are establishing right now, with the team we have. We're forming "The Wildcat Way" for the future. The brotherhood that we're developing right now ... we're laying the foundation.

3. Who's your idol?

My dad. He's a fireman in Bakersfield for 17 years. Before that, he was a correctional officer.

Peanut Butter and Jelly. I'll even get a little artisan and get almond butter with some blueberry jelly. There's a grocery store back home in Bakersfield that just has a grinder and it grinds the almonds or peanuts right in front of you into butter. And there's no added ingredients.

Beaches and mountains.

6. What are you most excited about for living in Los Angeles?

I'm excited to play close to home 'cause my NFL career was spent across the country. It will be cool to have friends and family able to watch me play.
