Lavonte David, 26, has worked hard to get where he is today. A two-star recruit from Miami’s mythical national championship-winning Northwestern High School, David went to Fort Scott (Kan.) Community College — where he lost to Cam Newton in the NJCAA national title game — before becoming a two-time All-American at Nebraska and second-round pick of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Last season, David earned a trip to the Pro Bowl and a five-year, $50.25-million contract extension. We caught up with the outside linebacker to talk fitness and, of course, football.
Sunday’s matchup between the Houston Texans and Carolina Panthers features two teams still trying to find their identities after lackluster Week 1 starts. The difference is, though, the Panthers won their Week 1 matchup, albeit against the perennial bottom dwellers, Jacksonville Jaguars. The Texans' season opener couldn't have gone much worse.
