1) Stock up

While at Florida State, Fiske hired a financial advisor and began learning about ways to invest the money he was making via Name, Image and Likeness. He continued to learn about investing via books and podcasts, and grandfather and uncle's influence also played a role in that.

2) Successfully transitioned to Power 5 level

Similar to second-year Rams nose tackle Kobie Turner and rookie class mate and college teammate Jared Verse, Fiske successfully made the jump from a smaller school – in his case Western Michigan – to the Power Five level.

Fiske spent five seasons at Western Michigan before joining Florida State as a grad transfer for the 2023 season.

3) Game recognize game

Playing for the National Team in this year's Senior Bowl, Fiske was voted practice player of the week by members of the American Team (opposing team).

He ran a 4.78-second 40, posted a 33.5-inch vertical jump and 9 feet, 9 inches in the broad jump.

5) Former baseball player

In addition to football, Fiske also played baseball in high school for Michigan City (Ind.).
