I love watching Purdue football. One of my favorite parts of watching Purdue football is watching Chris Carlino. There are very few people that play the game as hard as and with as much passion as Carlino. Is it any coincidence that he got a start at LB yesterday and the defense pitched a shutout? Maybe. Maybe not. It certainly didn't hurt things.
The Fishers, Indiana-native sees most of his action on special teams. Last year he was named Purdue Special Teams MVP. You want entertainment; watch this guy cover a kick-off. More often than not it ends with him putting the ball carrier on the turf or the guy trying to stop him on his back.
Between the football and Chris Carlino is not a place you want to be. His personality, and passion make him easy to root for. Oh, well that and his sweet facial hair and flowing locks.
To find out more about his leadership style, I asked him a couple of questions. Please don't hurt me...
