"Every Sunday. They definitely heard me." | 10 things with Terrell Burgess 

Each week I interview a different Rams player to find out about their lives on the field as well as off it. This week, safety Terrell Burgess shares an update on his ankle, his goals for the 2021 season, and his most prized possession.


1: Health update

Sarina: Let's get an update on your health. How's that ankle feeling?

Terrell: Feeling great, feeling really well. I'm excited for the season to start.

2: Tough to stop when you just got started

Sarina: What was the hardest part of getting through this whole process?

Terrell: I think knowing that the season was like over for me. Not the team, but like that I wasn't going to be able to play the rest of the season kind of sucked because I really felt like I was just starting to get my feet under me, and the season was going well for the team. I've never sat out that many games.


3: Cheer for everyone

Sarina: A lot of people are cheering for you to have a breakout/comeback season. Who are you cheering for on the team?

Terrell: I hope everybody has a breakout season. Then that means we're going to win the Super Bowl! (Laughs) So, I hope everybody plays well. I hope Matthew Stafford comes in and plays well. I believe he will. And maybe they'll finally give AD [Aaron Donald] MVP.

4: Sea him swim

Sarina: You were born in Oceanside, CA and lived near San Diego County much of your life. So, are you a good swimmer? A good surfer?

Terrell: Definitely not a surfer, I can swim pretty well, but I wouldn't consider myself a surfer. Far from surfer, I've never surfed before. I don't even know if I've ever stood on a surfboard before.

5: Rings and things

Sarina: Goals for the 2021 season?

Terrell: I don't know if I have any individual goals. I kind of just want to do what I can to help the team win. I want a chance to get out there and play more, more than I did last year obviously with the injury, but I mean everyone always wants to win the Super Bowl so let's roll with that one.

6: Who is the hype man?

Sarina: You get to work with one of the best corners in the league. What is something surprising about Jalen Ramsey, that maybe people aren't aware of?

Terrell: I think everyone like depicts him as some like huge trash talker but there's like a good balance in my opinion. I don't think it gets in the middle of him playing. He's a healthy trash talker. You want a little bit of that [in games], It makes it more fun and it just kind of hypes you up.


7: Some things can't change

Sarina: What is the movie you always watch when it's on television?

Terrell: Friday Night Lights. That's one movie that I always watch and every time I watch it, I hope they're going to win at the end. (Spoiler Alert) I hate it every time.

8: Three days in a row

Sarina: Would you rather have unlimited sushi for life or unlimited tacos?

Terrell: Tacos because I feel like I could eat tacos three days in a row. I don't know if I can eat sushi three days in a row.


9: What a combo

Sarina: What is your most prized possession?

Terrell: My college degree and my Rubik's Cube.

10: Hello neighbor!

Sarina: People are always yelling at the TV when they watch Rams games, do you also yell at the television when you watch?

Terrell: Oh, one hundred percent. I know my neighbors hated me from games eight through 19. Oh my goodness, I even had the windows open. Every Sunday. They definitely heard me.
