Each athlete has their own unique way of preparing for a game. For athletes preparing to play the intensely physical game of professional soccer, that usually means finding some way to get their adrenaline pumping. Former Jaguars defensive lineman John Henderson used to get slapped in the face by a coach in the locker room before going out onto the field. While running through the tunnel before a game against Jacksonville in 2009, Seahawks fullback Owen Schmitt hit his head on his own helmet so strong that blood began to gush out. Colts running back Nyheim Hines revealed earlier this season that he tells himself before every punt return, “I don’t care about my life.”
