Fisrt off, full disclosure. I’m a San Diego State University alumnus, so I will be biased. Let’s get into it.
We need a nickname for you and LeGarrett Blount, anything popping up in the Eagles locker room?
DP – The call me Lil JM and him Big Blount. As far as a backfield tandem name, nothing yet.
PFT – Lil JM?
DP – Juke Master
PFT – I’d say 176 is a generous assessment of your weight. How has the NFL pounding taken it’s toll on you so far this season? Has it at all?
DP – I took a big shot against Dallas, but other than that, you can’t hit what you can’t see. So it hasn’t been too bad, and coach limits my carries.
PFT – I have you as the MVP leader, but others in the media say “show me more”. What do you say to them?
DP – It’s a team sport. I have teammates out there who help me look good. The goal is Super Bowl, not MVP. If I do what I need to do, accolades will follow.
PFT – Is Carson Wentz elite?
DP – I see amazing things in Carson. He is an elite leader in the locker room and on the field.
PFT – Music choice before games?
DP – I have an old soul as far as music. I like a lot of 2000’s Hip Hop. Mainly West Coast and Down South artists, but I like Hip Hop.
PFT – Favorite part of your game…speed or juke?
DP – My game I like the most? It has to do with anticipation. Knowing when to juke or use my speed.
PFT – Last one, toughest opponent so far, and why?
DP – The Cardinals. They have the best defense we’ve run across.
PFT – Last last one…Can you go 16-0? No coach speak. Truth speak.
DP – We can go 16-0
There you have it. Donnel Pumphrey. The NFL’s newest young star.
