Every athlete has some specific things that they like to do before upcoming games, but as your competition elevates to the national stage, the excitement surrounding each game requires more and more focus than the one before for those who hope to be great.
Here at Campus Lore, we had the unique opportunity to speak with former collegiate standouts about their specific pregame routines, and whether or not there were any rituals or traditions that made their playing experience even more memorable. Click ahead to read their stories.
Samaje Perine – Oklahoma Sooners
Samaje Perine’s pregame routine apparently includes a lot of Skrillex. “I’m headphones on. Sometimes, I may seem rude when I’m walking because [fans] all want to get high fives but I’m just like… I can’t get out of my game. That’s my ritual, headphones on, head down, just going over what I have to do and what I have to prepare to do to help the team win. Have you ever heard of Skrillex? That’s what I like to listen to.”
